The key to conservative unity

As Washington approaches another budgetary crisis, Republicans face the threat of crippling splits in conservative ranks. This is unnecessary, given broad GOP agreement on an agenda for the future: reduced federal spending, less regulation, tax simplification and a reduction in rates, defense of the unborn, strong national defense, plus roll-back of Obamacare and other intrusive government programs.

Even on immigration, Republicans agree on goals: more effective border security and reducing the number of illegals in the country by deporting serious law-breakers and granting probationary legal status to those who earn it. Divisions involve tactics for confronting President Obama, not substantive issues. That's why the secret to GOP unity is emphasizing a positive program of our own, instead of concentrating on reacting to the president where we're damaged by needless arguments on the best way to respond.
