My thanks to Michelle Malkin for her blog post about yesterday's election results. She sums up my feelings quite well, and I posted the last line of that post as the header for my own post, because it's an important reminder to not give up.
Yes, I'm disappointed that Romney lost, but it's one election. There will be others. And as Michelle noted at the end of that particular post:
"We'll fight again tomorrow".
Those of you who are regular readers to my blog know that I'm a passionate conservative. I love this country. I love its history and traditions. Now this is not to say that liberals don't love this country, but what I think they love is not the kind of America that I love. I won't go into the details about that now, because there will be plenty of time to get into that later. And those of you who know my writing style know that I will get back to it.
But not now.
Now we need to work on picking ourselves up and dusting ourselves off, and start planning for next time. Most importantly, we need to learn what went wrong and make adaptations to fix it. But I hope that my fellow conservatives learned this: We can't afford any more "moderates" along the lines of a John McCain. Or Mitt Romney. We need a conservative candidate that's capable of defending the conservative way.
Starting today, I will go back to blogging, and go back to posting on Facebook. I will not give up, nor will I go away. The contest for 2016 begins as of this moment, and I will participate in it with all the strength, talent, and intellect that the Good Lord blesses me with. So no, friends - it's not over. It's only just begun.
See you all out there.
