Your Average Conservative
I’m not in the mood to throw anyone under the bus, so this isn’t a damn Mitt Romney post. He showed up and fought hard for better, or worse.
But here’s the problem for us to deal with now.
Back in the primary, your average principled conservative and serious-thinking Libertarian didn’t believe Mitt Romney could win. Relatively few supported him. But the vast majority showed up this year and fought hard for him.
Unfortunately, significant elements within the GOP are now poised to turn and try to blame those same people for last night’s defeat.
We can’t accept that outcome; that, not last night’s election would signal the end of things for us politically speaking.
