Tuesday, November 2, 2004 was a huge victory for moral, values-based Conservatism. Now, President Bush, Speaker Hastert and Majority Leader Frist have a solemn duty to do the right thing. Of course, judicial nominations (for example, a re-nomination of Miguel Estrada, perhaps in the soon-to-be-vacated seat on the SCOTUS) must take precedence if the Conservative movement is to go forward. But that's not where it stops, not by a long shot. We need tax reform (I personally would like to see a national sales tax on all purchases other than those needed for survival, such as food, utilities, etc.) so that small businesses can continue to grow the economy. We need resolution in Iraq so that our boys and girls can come home. The denial of our nation's Judeo-Christian roots by the courts must stop. The protection of unborn children must be codified in the law of the land. The list goes on.
It's in the court of the Congressional Conservatives and the White House. We gave you the mandate, we gave you the political capital, now go out and spend it.
That's just my 2 cents.
