The Future of Conservatism

Another one of the underrated benefits of losing an election is the chance that it offers our party to self-reflect. There'll be lots of discussion about the appropriate strategy and tactics over the next few months, but sometimes lost in all that inside baseball is a discussion about our ideas.

Some Republican leaders are already starting to speak about their visions for the future. The recently re-elected Republican Whip in the U.S. House, Congressman Roy Blunt, gave a good speech on this topic last week. (You can see the video or read the text).

I'll try to post other speeches or articles as I see them. If we take advantage of this opportunity to open dialogue and reenergize our ideas, in two years the country will be longing for a return to some common sense.
