Alan Keyes, in his latest column appearing at World Net Daily, articulates on the matter of conservatives and convictions, and notes as an example how some conservatives and Republicans have not supported the rising discontent over the President's birth certificate.
Considering some conservatives and Republicans have gone to the point of joining in the ridiculing of the birthers and neutrals right along with the Left (and Little Green Footballs), if the majority of the nation believed ObamaCare was a good idea, would those same individuals also join in the ridiculing of ObamaCare opponents? The matter is over true conviction in the face of populism; how many conservative and Republican leaders live by them, and how many are willing to sacrifice those convictions for the sake of going with the flow? I certainly hope the number is very small.
The fact Republican leaders didn't stick to their true convictions stands alone as the main reason there are fewer GOP seats in either house of Congress, and that a Democrat, not a Republican, is in the White House today. Read the whole of Dr. Keyes's column.
