The traditional conservative Republican Party lost ground in this election. Nevertheless, our American republic will get what we deserve because we, for better or for worse, are still a government of the people, by the people, for the people through our elected representatives.
If we elect candidates who represent a collectivist political philosophy, we are instructed to pray for them that their hearts and minds may be turned. Otherwise, it may take another American Revolution to put them out of office. This could occur through a fundamental realignment of the political parties whereby conservatives and libertarians form a coalition to take over the Republican Party similar to the way the socialists and the liberals took over the Democratic Party. Independent conservatives may finally be motivated to take a stand and help us out vetting conservatives through the primary process.
If like-minded conservatives continue to work together, we can form a new conservative coalition in Maine and our nation; we can regain limited government, individual rights and responsibility, free enterprise and a strong national defense. If we don’t, we will have lost the greatness that was America – at least for a moment in history. As long as our republic stands, we have the power to retain or change our representatives in the next election; we need only to understand and operate our political system correctly. If we don’t, others will operate it for us.
