The conservative movement took it pretty good on the chin earlier
this week. President Obama and his liberal allies mobilized their vote
and got it out very effectively in the key states. On Tuesday night, as I
went to bed, I was extremely down and out. But on Wednesday, as the sun
rose, my spine stiffened and it was a brand new day.
Our conservative cause has taken hits again and again, and each time
we come back stronger. We must not back down now and throw away our
values for the sake of political expediency. We must take the fight to
the Left and liberal mainstream media. We must not bow, but instead take
on those who want to fundamentally change our country for the worse.
Looking to the future, our conservative movement has a great bench of
up-and-coming stars. Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson,
just to name a few, will all have a seat at the table as we rebuild our
party and take the fight into the 2014 midterms and beyond. I have full
confidence these outstanding conservative leaders will put our party on
the right path and take on President Obama as he continues to try to
move America towards a European socialist style of government.
We have a $16 trillion debt and rising, 46 million Americans are on
food stamps, and unemployment is nearly at 8 percent. President Obama
now cannot say he inherited a bad hand, because it is his own failed
record that's his legacy.
Republicans must make the case for free markets and smaller
government. We must be optimistic in the fact that our principles are
the best for future generations and find a way to communicate that to
our youth. It is freighting that we lost the youth vote again in a big
way. It is their future that is under attack by President Obama, and
they still do not know it. That is why it is incumbent upon all of us to
resolve to spread the conservative message, especially to younger
We must strengthen our resolve and stand up and fight for our
conservative principles. We must get stronger for the good of our
nation’s future. President Obama might have won the latest battle, but
the war of ideas continues, and it is a war we can ultimately win.
