The Battle is Over but the War is Still On

By Brian Hughes

Here are my thoughts after Monday’s conference call with Rick Santorum, Karen, Bella and Mark Rodgers. I am a values voter and my first choice was Senator Santorum. I gave everything I could to Rick and his campaign, money, time, skills, talents, sweat, tears and more. Just ask my wife. But I have no regrets.

Early on in the 30 minute Conference call Rick stated that “…we’re no longer in this race.” So It’s painfully obvious that his Presidential Campaign is over and we must stop trying to campaign without a Candidate.

“The war is not over but the battle is and we can’t fight a battle without a General.”

I can’t stand how the system works either and I personally think Mitt Romney is not the best thing going for us as Republicans but I will still support what Republicanism stands for and trust that God is in control.

I was able to vote for Rick in my Primary here in Florida and it felt good to be able to do that so I understand how disappointed many of you are who still have a Primary or Caucus coming up. I say vote however you feel like when it’s your turn. After August I have every intention to support who ever the GOP Nominee is in hopes of defeating President Barack Obama and I encourage others to do the same.

I hear many other Republicans say they will not support Romney if he is the Nominee. In black and white reality, I don’t believe that is the right thing to do and I do believe God would frown upon us doing nothing in this matter. If we allow the enemy to discourage us from supporting the Republican Nominee and from voting in November, the enemy will have won a major battle.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

We still have to fight for what we as Conservative Republicans stand for and defeating Barack Obama is the Parties main objective.

My main focus has already shifted to helping State and local Conservatives with their Congressional Campaigns. We have many many races all over the Country that need all of our help! How amazing would it be to take what rick has started and now focus all of it on those races…it would shake the foundations of Capitol Hill and our voices would be heard loud and clear.

We need to help Conservative Candidates take the Senate back and expand the House. One of the great places to help do that is this Facebook group, National Grassroots to Elect a Conservative Congress.

But if we just scatter in discontent to our havens of misery it will be a much larger loss for all of us. Please be encouraged, keep the faith and keep fighting! God bless!
