Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Earlier this year a number of us on Ricochet (and elsewhere) repeatedly called for a clear and crisp national agenda for the Republican Party, something every candidate could rally behind and repeatedly put at the center of every campaign stop and debate.
They failed to do this. And yes, while the Republicans won many more votes than the Democrats (and many more than in 2020), and yes, while there was much more ballot harvesting and other fraudulent activities by the Dems, and yes, while we allowed Trump to still somehow be in the middle of the campaign: This election was a debacle because there was no clear positive message.
“We are not the Democrats” is not enough. Our party needed trumpet blasts of what we actually stand FOR. We all knew it. We said it, time and again. And we were right.Published in
