Conservatives need to learn how to fight againOccasionally, conservatives need to take drastic action in order to be heard. The 1964 Election was such a time, because conservatives were fighting for a voice and a vehicle to be heard. Certain people, namely Governor Nelson Rockefeller of New York and Governor George Romney of Michigan (that is the father of Mitt, by the way), represented the GOP's wealthy elitists who didn't care about conservatism, about the Constitution or America-only about their own power.
Notice how Rockefeller refers to conservatives as "these people."
Rest assured, we may have to fight this battle all over again in 2008, and just as in 1964, victory in taking control of the Party could prove to be of greater long-term importance than victory at the polls in one November.
We are in a fight with the same sort of snobs all over again.
