Given what’s happened in the last couple of days on the national political scene, the time looks right to try and change the composition of the federal government for the better, which means, of course, from liberal to conservative. The job is only just beginning, however, and here in Pennsylvania we have to do our part. I recognize that Republicans aren’t always the perfect conservatives that we’d like to see in office, but generally, the worst Republican is better than the best Democrat.
I remember, for example, that when a less-than-perfect conservative ran for President just over a year ago, a man who had taken some unfortunate positions in his career, including sponsoring some highly suspect legislation, many conservatives I know sat the election out. Well, how’s that working out for us now? Maybe it did set the stage for a big revolution in November, but as Jimmy Carter showed, a bad President can do a lot of damage in only four years.
With that in mind, let’s get out and work for conservative candidates for the November election. There are a lot of things the average person can do, from registering conservatives to vote to calling those conservatives to try to get them to come out on election day. At the moment, we have two fairly reliable conservatives with a great chance to win major offices in November, but if you don’t like either one or both of them for some reason, now’s the time to work for your candidate – before the primary. Once the Republicans have nominated their candidates, let’s get behind them and start taking our country back.
