Eastern Iowa Conservative: The future

Excerpted from this post at Eastern Iowa Conservative

... We do need to become a more inclusive party, but not to the point where we compromise our beliefs by trying to pitch too big of a tent.That means that fiscal conservatives / social moderates need to learn how to co-habitate with the people who are social conservatives first, and vice-versa. I realize it can be a tough balancing act but a party divided will yield results similar to those that we just experienced. All in our party need to form a symbiotic relationship that is mutually beneficial to all. ... I've found that nothing pisses off most diehard Democrats more than being cordial to them and forcing them to try to respond in a civilized way. Personal attacks can very easily turn off casual voters, but I am of the belief that presenting facts about an opposing candidate does not equal "negative" campaigning.
