Sell conservatism with the truth?
"A responsible opposition, it seems to me, would have to start at the opposite end—not with some clever promise to move crucial voting blocs (Hispanics, blue-collar Catholics), but with the truth: the country is broke. Our institutions are broken. Our economy is on the ropes. To fix the mess, you must give up something; but we have a plan that makes it worth your while. That pretty much sums up The Federalist. The difference between Publius and us is the willingness to tell the truth, and the plan."
