No one who seeks the Republican nomination for the presidency can hope to emerge victorious without the support of social conservatives, arguably the largest and most dynamic constituency in the GOP primaries.
They comprise a majority of voters in many early primaries, among them Iowa, South Carolina, and Florida. Moreover, coupled with tea party activists they turn out consistently and heavily on election days.
So it is no surprise that leaders like Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Jon Huntsman who are seeking their party's nomination for president of the United States are speaking to grass-roots activists from every state in the Union who are looking for a candidate to support.
These are activists who believe in the need to return our nation to the principles enshrined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
They believe in limited government, fiscal responsibility, strong families, protection of innocent human life, free markets, and a forward strategy in the war on terrorism that will defend the United States and its allies.
For too long the politicians in Washington have opposed this agenda.
We welcome national leaders and presidential aspirants who are offering their energy and ideas on how to restore America's faith, freedom, security, and prosperity to present their ideas. We must get this country on a fast-track back to its core values. It is an idea whose time has come.
