#1 Go back to Fiscal conservatism. #2 Forget about the Christian Fundamentalists. The US is not interested, and they are a shrinking core. #3 Throw out the anti intellectualism, That is the stuff of Pol Pot and communists. Ignorance is not king. #3 Stop trying to spread your ideas of democracy to the whole world. We are not the world's police. #4 Focus your efforts here in the United States. #5 Get out of peoples bedrooms. #6 Lets forget about abortion for a while. #7 Forget the Karl Rove style campaigns. People want ideas and someone who can inspire hope. No one is interested in shit talking, they want answers.
