Intellectual Honesty From the Right

Rich Lowry explains how Republican control of the spending process in Wahington leaves much to be desired. Let’s be honest. Our Republican party has been a failure when it comes to controlling spending. Obviously the Democrats would be much worse but that is no excuse.

Conservatives are Republicans because the GOP is the best vehicle to implement an agenda which recognizes people are capable of solving their own problems and that government action only exacerbates whatever crisis it is trying to solve.

Lowry warns of someone else cleaning up this process if the Republicans don’t. I wouldn’t go that far, at least not yet. But I will tell you this: Republicans should not take conservatives for granted. Unlike liberals, conservatives are not stupid. We don’t blindly follow those who betray us.
