And if we call you out and demand to know -- which we will, you can bet on that, it’s part of the playbook -- the details of your "plan," laugh and tell them to shove it and start talking about principles.
To do otherwise is to accept our premises, which means you have already lost. Instead, stick to the big picture: liberty, self-reliance, faith, freedom.
