The Uphill Battle

Conservatives must not back down but also must be disciplined in the upcoming political battles.

Making the case against something for nothing in the confines of sound bite political arguments is a difficult task but it is a battle that must be won. Regarding health care, here is a quote from a North Carolina resident: "It's just going to be like Christmas," said DeCarlo Flythe, who lost health coverage for his family when he was laid off almost three years ago. "It's going to be great. You know, no worries (about) the bills. We are going to go ahead and pay our co-pay and be alright."

The Democrats have a much easier time dividing the country and giving away goods one group at a time. With talk of immigration reform rising there is another issue in which the country can be divided, this time on racial lines for the benefit of the Democratic Party.

As with all issues race should not be a factor. We should have the same rules for everyone but it is hard to sell fairness to all when your competition offers a discount or the best offer of all, something for nothing. It may be difficult for the Republicans to compete but they must.
