An excellent read by Laura Hollis, Townhall.com: Freemen and Freewomen are outnumbered in the land of the free. We will not win at the ballot box, we need to start winning back our culture. My only disagreement with Laura is that Ron Paul would have been a far superior candidate than Romney.
1. We Are Outnumbered
We accurately foresaw the enthusiasm, the passion, the commitment, the determination, and the turnout. Married women, men, independents, Catholics, evangelicals – they all went for Romney in percentages as high or higher than the groups which voted for McCain in 2008. It wasn’t enough. What we saw in the election on Tuesday was a tipping point: we are now at a place where there are legitimately fewer Americans who desire a free republic with a free people than there are those who think the government should give them stuff. There are fewer of us who believe in the value of free exchange and free enterprise. There are fewer of us who do not wish to demonize successful people in order to justify taking from them. We are outnumbered. For the moment. It’s just that simple.
