From Star Parker:
Here’s an excerpt from a letter I received the other day from a college professor: “[T]hroughout this election I discussed with students the differences between ideologies. The majority of them are on federal financial aid. They are fine with more taxes as long as they will be taken care of. It is disturbing to hear that they are willing to spend their own money on tattoos and cell phones but cannot buy the book for class until the financial aid comes in.”
For those who see social conservatism as an annoyance and argue that Republicans must purge this agenda from their party in order to survive, I say, “Think again.”
If Republicans want revival, we need honest focus on what’s really wrong in America and what must be done to assure that a great nation will be standing for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
This kind of thinking is different from polls and focus groups and clever schemes to manage media and voter turnout. Leadership is about identifying the truth, believing it and telling it in a way that people can grasp. Then they will respond and follow.
