(I sense at least a slight smell of 'compassionate conservatism' in this piece and that leaves me wary of 'good intentions', because they often have bad consequences. The idea of changing the Electoral College to me seems like putting the cart before the horse - although I admit that is thinking outside daBox!:)
I fully agree and double down on the authors' general concept of conservatives needing to go into the neighborhoods and engage our neighbors. In fact, we need a 'fundamental transformation' in how we address our culture.
Culture forms our politics, not vice versa. But how exactly do we do that?
It's called mentoring - and it is with that purpose I started this website and blog.
Let me also caution you to not expect quick fixes - there ain't any. We all have to go to work - how's that for thinking outside daBox, eh?)
