I agree with your entire premise.

The problem is the political reality of what the Left does in the election. They KNOW, absolutely proof-positively know, they will lose and lose bad on fiscal issues. They know this.

Go back and look at just about any election. If the GOP/Conservative candidate is winning on the issues, the Lefty will, 100% of the time, inject 4 "wedge" issues:

God
Guns
Gays
Abortion

The Left will campaign on these cultural issues that their side salivates over. This energizes their base while, if unchallenged, depresses the conservative base.

I wholly agree that fiscal issues should be enough to win. The reality is that the actual campaign will cause cultural (wedge) issues to be debated. It is best for the conservatived to stay on message of fiscal responsibility, but he still has to keep his base on cultural issues.

Fiscally responsible politicians that seen soft on the Second Amendment, atheistic-based religious intolerance, and overall cultural rot are not that appealing to the larger base.

Reagan won on all issues, but stayed largely on topic with the fiscal issues. To ignore is to tacitly endorse. That is the political reality.

I wish it were not so.
