How to Win: Lift Us Up; the City on the Hill Strategy

From Rush yesterday

The whole focus, for me, anyway … “I don’t hear anybody talking about American exceptionalism.” Not one of our presidential candidates is talking about the greatness of this country, just the exact opposite. That’s not good.  If somebody could break out of the pack talking about how great this country is because of how great the people who work and live here make it, that guy could run a landslide victory.  It’s simple. It’s right there. It’s in the playbook. It’s in the blueprints.  We end up, on our side, so often accepting the doom-and-gloom pessimistic premises of the left, and that’s why this all gets frustrating sometimes.
