Welcome to Solomon's Conservative Wisdom

Welcome to my Conservative Blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon, now I make no claim to have Solomon's Wisdom, but I do have Common Sense. I welcome anyone to join in and comment about anything I may have written, posted or one of my Articles / Columns. This blog is dedicated to conservatism and freedom. I invite all conservatives to join in, I don’t mind non-conservatives joining in (after all the only way to change liberals and fence-sitters is to debate them and change their minds, some are just too hard headed to admit they are wrong) . All I expect is a respectful debate.

I have recently split my postings to a few other blogs I own, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom II, and Solomon's Conservative Wisdom at Townhall.com, to spread out some of my postings.
So check them out and tell me what you think.

Please comment on my Articles and Columns, as well as any other post that is not just a link to a story.

Is the GOP becoming New Coke?

With the Obama’s reelection and no gains in the senate it seems that the GOP has decided to go New Coke, to become democrat light, but as history has shown when given a choice people will prefer to choose between two different options generally not two similar ones. Chinese or pizza not Pizza Hut or Papa Johns. Many elite GOPers see the losses of 2012 due to candidates who didn’t have the sense to keep (possibly) honest opinions to themselves, despite the fact they should have known that some so-called “moderates” and independents would react negatively to those opinions. Now I’m not saying they should have lied just gone with simple answers stating they were pro-life and that, that child did nothing to deserve a death penalty, no honest independent would have voted against them if they had said something like that now back to my point. Many elites in the GOP now want to restrict the people from making choices, acting like the democrats in infantalizing people, stopping conservative and Tea Party candidates from running against the establishment choice.

You see the mistake Coke made was that the tests Pepsi used in their ads and research were biased towards Pepsi when coke fell for this they made the mistake that the GOP is now making only now with more far reaching consequences. But Coke quickly learned their flagship product and name sake being “like” their competition didn’t work as they had hoped for. Public reaction to new Coke quickly soured, ironically lead by a minority of people, soon that opinion steam rolled to a point where Coke was forced to return to the real thing and their roots. The GOP will quickly learn that same lesson as their new coke candidates lose and the classic candidates win. For now I believe that conservatives need to think about what they are going to say as your not just running against a democrat but their own version of peovda that will run you into the ground just for the heck of it. We will also need to work together better with less infighting, leave that to the democrats, disagreements are fine but leave the full-fledged fights to the ring.

One last thing for you Tea Party candidates rehearse everything you believe in, you do not need to lie but simplify any opinion that the MSM could below out of proportion to one that most “moderates” and independents wouldn’t hold against you. Know your enemies winning a battle and war is about the plan & preparation as much as the equipment. Memorize every “controversial” conservative social belief according to the MSM and ready yourself for battle.

By the way after Coke Classic was returned to the market New Coke quickly died out, it was then returned to the market in 1990 in small test scale as Coke II and fully in 1992, but soon Coke II withered and was then found only in a few markets where it was popular until its production was ended in August 16 2002. Proving that often a bad idea that is tried and failed should be left in the graveyard of bad ideas.


P.S. I would note it is possible that the GOP is dead with the choices they make, but if they do return later to the “classic” formula (A.K.A. triditional values) they could be repaired and healed to a proper state that people would believe in, preferably keeping an eye on them as well, allowing the Republican Party to pull a Lazarus. But that is yet to be seen if that will happen.
