One of the biggest problems we face as conservatives is our own collective inability to articulate our principles.

When explained in a straightforward succinct manner, conservative ideas are at their base, commonsense.  They resonate with Americans and speak to our core values as a nation – our yearning for freedom as individuals and demand for responsible government as a society.

I could not have said it better myself.  It is a powerful reminder of where we have been and where we are going and deserves to be shared far and wide.
