How do conservatives appeal to the voters who went for Obama this time?  How do conservatives attract the independents and the moderate Democrats?  These are important questions, which conservatives should let someone else worry about.  What conservatives should do is espouse, advocate and fight for their values, and let the Obama voters and independents and moderates either come to us or not.  To some extent, the events of the next four years will send many, many voters our way.  But conservatives cannot waste their efforts revising their values to fit the Zeitgeist.  The spirit of the age will move on.  But the nature of Man and of Man’s place in the world will remain the same, and the conservative values that flow from a true understanding of that place and that world therefore also must remain the same.

I’ll get to those in a bit.
