In an Obamacare world, what is the GOP’s message? “We need to become the party of liberty and freedom,” Ryan argues. “We’re not doing enough. We can do better, and we will — because we have no choice. If we’re going to offer the country a completely different vision, we can’t be Democratic-lite or resign ourselves to be slightly more efficient managers and tax-collectors for the welfare state. We have to break with that and give people a clear and distinct difference.”As Conservatives, we wandered off the farm. It happened. Now let's pull ourselves together and turn this thing around. Earlier today The Daley Gator called me optimistic. Well, I am. I have a candidate for the US Senate, Marco Rubio, that I really believe in. I believe that Mike Prendergast can unseat my local Rep., Kathy Castor, in the House. I believe that there is an absolute groundswell of dedicated people ready to take this country back. We've been kicked in the seat of the pants and we needed it.
At Potluck, Fuzislippers has a superb post that puts it all in perspective. Down in the comments Quite Rightly quotes Gen. George s. Patton:
In war the only sure defense is offense, and the efficiency of the offense depends on the warlike souls of those conducting it.
Okay, let's go on offense. The next battle is November. There will be some skirmishes between now and then but we have shown that we are up to the challenge. We fight!
