Let's remember that it was a man from this state who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House, a party founded on the values of self-reliance and individual liberty and national unity.I hope that President-elect Barack Hussein Obama was speaking the whole truth and nothing but the truth when these word came out of his mouth at the victory speech in Chicago.
Those are values that we all share.
There are supporters of Obama who want to see conservatives looking sad, demoralized, and defeated. I refuse to let them see this in me, and it will be so much easier if Obama truly believes in self-reliance and individual liberty.
There is a need among conservatives to stay on message and recognize how important it is to define capitalism, self-reliance, and individual liberty. Too often in the last fourteen years the Republicans elected to the US Congress and the White House made decisions based on fear of losing. We need to promote leaders who will make decisions based on faith in the core principles and values described in the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution Preamble.
In addition to the leaders that we need is the need for a more informed electorate. Parents need to talk with their children about what they are being taught in school. More people need to know what Marxism is all about, and what Capitalism is all about.
There is one more line in his victory speech that caught my attention: And we know the government can't solve every problem. This statement is another part of a message conservatives need to promote.
