“GOP Chief: Republicans ‘Screwed Up’ After Reagan”
The first step to fixing any problem is admitting the problem exists. I fear some in Washington and Austin will remain blind, though, to the truth that Steele promotes. Some Republicans would rather find ways to regain or keep their personal power than stand on principles. They would rather be prideful people than people of virtue.
For the rest of the party–those who recognize and admit the failures of the past–the next step to fixing the problem offers a challenge. Step two is to change behavior. As Steele said it, “When elected Republicans vote against Republican principles, the voters must withhold their support — withhold it vigorously and consistently.”
Here’s the question, though: do Republicans have the courage to do this? I ask all Republicans: do you have the courage to be people of principle?
The challenge is issued; the choice is yours.
