Assigned Reading: Rasmussen and the Quietly Rusting Democratic Advantage
This was included in the Daily Dozen yesterday, but I felt the need to expand upon it. Despite how things might look here in downtown Philadelphia, I DO think that the American people are going to wake up, wise up and stand up for their country. The Rasmussen numbers show that it may already be happening.
That’s why, over the next few days, weeks and months, I am going to dedicate this place for discussion about how to retake America. I picked a photograph of the Jefferson Memorial for a reason — not only is it my favorite architecturally, but the Jeffersonian idea as to the scope of our federal government is exactly what we need.
Right now, when I have a little time, I’m working on a piece about how the GOP, to succeed, must distill the conservative and Republican message down to its absolute core: role of government. Of course, we cannot forget about the War on Terror or the sanctity of life or any other specific issue or argument. Of course not. What will allow us to put forth that agenda is control. And what will garner control is a boiled-down message tapping into the core of conservative, Libertarian and Republican ideals, a message which will resonate with Americans turned off by one particular issue or another.
It’s coming. And it might just be good timing.
