Elitism is never a good thing, and if the GOP is to rebuild and regain power, then it is the elites that must go away. The NRSC has forgotten that it is Conservative principles, and not elites, and certainly not moderate, Meghan McCain Republicans that have made the GOP a great party in the past.
Perhaps the elites, or self-styled elites that run the NRSC, and have too much sway over the direction of the Republican Party in general have been looking at polls and listening to the media a bit too much.
They surely have not been listening to their base. And those Conservative principles? They have let those drift into the background. They seem to think those principles are outdated and a hindrance to the rebirth of the GOP. No, no, and no again! Without those principles, low taxes, fiscal responsibility, defense of the unborn, a commitment to defending the Second Ammendment, and the rest of the Constitution, and a strong national defense, the GOP is nothing!
If the party stands for nothing, no one, most of all those undecided on what party they do beong to will ever see any reason to join it. No one likes a loser, or a coward. And surely the members of the NRSC are turning into ideological cowards. They are too afraid of "negative media coverage" or saying the wrong thing, or seeming too "extreme".
Here it is in plain language NRSC, you want to win? Great! You want to defeat the Democrats? Great! Here is the plan, from a simple Conservative.
1- Do not worry about the media "distorting" your message, we all know that is what they are going to do. Stand on the principles of theFounders, because they ARE the principles of Conservatism, and do not waver.
2- Welcome challenges, welcome debate. Our ideology is superior to that of the Left, In honest debate we win. Again, stand on our principles.
3- Stop telling the base to be quiet. Stop this moronic tactic of trying to convince us that any effort to support more Conservative candidates is a recipe for failure. It is not, it never has been. Again, stand up for our principles! Try listening to the menbers of your party for a change.
4- The very worst campaign tactic is to give us a candidate and say, "yeah, they are not that great, but the other guy is REALLY bad!" Again, you have to stand up and believe in Conservative principles. Without those, the GOP is nothing. Stop trying to stop us from being who we are!
5- Remember Reagan, remember 1994! We won, in 1980 with Reagan, and retook the House and Senate in 1994. Do you recall how? By becoming Meghan McCain Republicans? No, with ideals, expressed with conviction backed by deeply held beliefs in our principles!
It is the principles stupid!
