Why we should all be Republicans
Pete DuPont offers a great column about why the Republican Party is growing in strength, and what some of us mean when we say that the Democrats are out of touch with America: "Rather than applauding Hillary Clinton's telling them last summer that their taxes must be raised because 'we're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good,' they prefer Newt Gingrich's observation that the Declaration of Independence's Pursuit of Happiness includes an active verb: 'Not happiness stamps; not a department of happiness; not therapy for happiness. Pursuit.'
If the Democratic Party allows itself to be defined by Ted Kennedy, Michael Moore and the editorial page of the New York Times, while Republicans, their president and their strengthened congressional majorities encourage the pursuit of happiness in an opportunity and ownership society, then Mr. and Mrs. America will make sure conservatives are in power for a great many years to come."
