Please read my post-election analysis on the fallout from the Democrats’ victory in Colorado, published today in The Denver Daily News, including this stirring conclusion:
The Independence Instituteâ€™s role could hardly be more important now. More than ever we will work to expose the big government agenda and to educate Coloradans about the value of personal and economic liberty in addressing the issues our state faces.
The â€œeternal truths of the Declaration of Independenceâ€ will help to guide us through the rough waters of the near future.
Conservatives need to stop and do some serious reflection, then press forward. Unlike the Statist Left, our hopes don’t rise and fall alone on who is empowered by the reins of government.
I for one plan to enjoy this Saturday’s Wolverine victory over Ohio State, spend time with family at Thanksgiving, and prepare mentally and spiritually for the special Yuletide season. 2008 will be here before any of us know it, with a little 2007 to come in between.
