After the last election, one thing is clear: we lost our way. We had no clear message, no voice. We did not stand firm against the bailout package, and we lost the original members of the Republican constituency! We had forgotten how to stand as conservatives. Together, we must resurrect the message that the best government is the government that governs least, that conservative principles are the right principles.
