I just watched Rush's speech at CPAC and it was the greatest speech on Conservatism since the days of President Reagan. It was a real stemwinder that lasted well over an hour, but it seemed like it was over in five minutes. If we only had candidates who could articulate conservatism the way Rush does, Obama and liberalism wouldn't have a chance. Basically, he succinctly laid out the premise that Conservatism is based on the Constitution and the Declaration of independence and is borne out of the eternal ideas of the Founding Fathers, namely life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Conservatism cannot be bended or twisted or changed, and the era of Reagan cannot be over as some so-called "inside - the - beltway pseudo - conservatives" have proclaimed. It is predicated upon respect for the uniqueness of every individual as created by God. Long live Rush and long live conservatism. Stay upbeat and fight on to victory in 2010!
