There are those who recoil at the idea of criticizing Republican leadership. The only way to push the reforms the GOP must implement — if we are to take our great nation back — is to make sure everyone knows that what is happening is not normal, and certainly not conservative.

We’re in this mess for a reason, and it’s because GOP leaders either don’t understand the conservative ideal (which is why they can’t articulate it), or they do understand it and simply don’t like it. Either way, it’s clear they’re not convincing anyone, and have failed at being “Obama Lite.”

Frankly, I wouldn’t care if the only thing at stake was a political party, but it’s not. It’s the nation’s future and your family’s future that hang in the balance. The only way we’re going to bring the conservative ideal back to power is by being honest about what’s happening to the entire political class, challenging them to change, and if they refuse, then retiring them against their will.
