Why Don’t Our Minority Republicans Count?
We have to face some truths. We have to face some reality. We are outnumbered and we are losing ground. This was not a glitch. This is the trend that happened last night. This is the trend. We are outnumbered. Whether you want to put it in terms of have we lost the country or not, there’s no other explanation. I don’t care if there were more Republicans that didn’t vote. Why didn’t they? I don’t want to talk about the people that didn’t vote. That just means we didn’t get our vote out. I don’t want to talk about election strategy, I want to talk about the results. You have to face ’em. We are outnumbered. We’re losing ground. It’s difficult to beat Santa Claus.
I’m just gonna give you a brief review here of the first hour. It’s impossible to beat Santa Claus, especially when your alternative is that you have to be your own Santa Claus. We have totally allowed the understanding of what creates wealth and what creates prosperity in this country be distorted. We have allowed it to be misdefined, redefined. We have allowed wealth and achievement to become negatives. We have permitted prosperity, hard work to become things that are sneered at and said to be not for everybody. We’ve allowed this. It’s been happening. And we have said all the while it’s been going on, “The American people are never gonna believe that stuff.” But the left has been relentless for decades pushing this.
I also want to restate a couple of questions from the first hour, because there’s all kinds of Monday morning quarterbacking going on. I’m not doing that. I’m telling you what is. And, of course, predictable voices on the Republican side, “Well, we got to get serious now about Hispanic outreach. We have to get serious now about reaching out to women, and get serious about reaching out to the youth vote.”
