What conservatives in this country failed to understand is that while a majority of the nation can safely be classified as Fiscally Conservative, this
doesn't hold true for people who can be seen as Socially Conservative. And the GOP and Conservatives forgot there's a massive difference between the
Yes, the majority of this country wants a smaller government, less taxes, and more fiscally responsible spending. But not everyone is on board with
the Social Conservatives belief structure.
Historically America has never been a Socially Conservative nation. We have always been a Socially Liberal nation. Even from our inception, we were
Socially Liberal (for the time) and we continue to be Socially Liberal. If the GOP has any hope of ever being relevant again. They are going to have
to tone down the Social Conservative rhetoric and start emphasising the fiscally conservative parts of their agenda.
Stop trying to ban gay marriage, start trying to come up with middle of the road solutions to the budget that don't rely heavily on gutting social
programs. (here's a hint, try cutting military spending for once)
Stop trying to ram your beliefs down everyone's throats, and instead try to ram a balanced budget and sane tax code through Washington.
Don't punish the poor for being poor, Punish those who gain wealth through off-shoring jobs and selling this countries economic future away.
There's nothing wrong with being fiscally conservative. Be that. Just leave the loony tunes bible thumping, quasi racist bull at the door for a
while. See if you can get some of those voters you drove off by the truckload back in your corner.
