Clearly the election showed President Obama was not given a mandate and the country is more divided now than when he took office. Yet Froma Harrop, speaking for liberals and RINOs everywhere, advises, “Republicans Need to Take Their Party Back” (Nov. 7). As Obama said to Paul Ryan when Ryan presented a bipartisan budget proposal for consideration, “That’s not going to happen.”
Conservatives are not going to cease or limit their attempt to preserve our constitutional republic where individual rights are endowed by the creator and are protected by a sacrosanct constitution based on the moral and ethical principals of the Judeo/Christian religion any more than liberals are going to refrain from marching toward a form of statism based on Marxist/Socialist economic policies and the moral relativism of a secular society that believes rights and laws come from man and are relative and changing.
Liberals won the battle, not the war. Or, to be politically correct, the election, not the debate.
