Conservatives must win ongoing culture war

Editor, the Advocate:
We hear a lot lately about the deadlock in Washington; neither side wants to give an inch. This is not surprising to me because both sides believe strongly about where they want to take the nation. The Republicans want to return to limited government and to honor the Constitution, the Democrats want to take the government into socialism. I say, let them fight it out. We are in a cultural war and a war of ideas about where we go next. Would you give in or compromise and let the other party have their way? If you would, you don't have a strong belief in the government that our Founding Fathers gave us. Fathers that suffered imprisonment, loss of property and even death. This is a war the conservatives must win if we are to be true to our national heritage.
