Whilst commenting at HotAir, I was suddenly struck by a realization.
As we have seen time and time again, especially with shamnesty:
When the Republican Party abandons conservatives, they suffer, and rightly so.
What the Mel-Martinez-lead Republican Party needs to understand is that conservatives don’t need them. The Republican Party needs to offer candidates that follow the three tenets of Republicanism:
- Strong National Defense
- Limited Government
Whenever a candidate of the party deviates from any of these, then they can kiss conservative support goodbye.
