Mini Eagle Freedom Links -- Conservatism on the verge of a rebirth?

In an interview Ted Cruz stated that conservatism is 'on the verge of a rebirth.'  He continued by expressing his optimism, positive that we can stop the liberal policies, and replace them with conservative, liberty friendly ones. He has offered two plans for the future, one in the short-term and the other for the long-term.

From The Daily Caller:

“The first thing I would urge every Republican in the House of Representatives [to do] is stop reading the New York Times,” he said. 
The Texas Republican further urged Republican House members to “stop bad things” that would harm the country, calling out in particular  gun control, increased spending, higher taxes and burdensome economic regulation.Cruz added that Republicans should use “leverage points” to get what they want done. The party should be willing, he said, to send the government into partial or temporary shutdown over the coming debt ceiling and continuing resolution negotiations. 

Over the long term, Cruz stressed Republicans must “win the argument” and become the party of growth as a means to grow jobs, reduce debt, reduce poverty and increase revenues. 
“You want to pay back debt you get the economy roaring and people back to work. Four percent growth per decade, 3 million people would rise up from poverty and be standing on their own,” he said. “We need to be unapologetically, relentlessly the party growth. And the policies of the Obama administration not only don’t produce growth, they kill jobs.”Cruz returned to his long-standing message of “opportunity” as the second plank in his long-term plan for Republicans’ resurgence. 
“Every domestic policy we as conservatives think about, talk about, fight about should be focused like a laser on opportunity. On easing the means of ascent up the economic ladder. That should be the focus of every single policy,” he said. “Our policies work. The other side’s don’t.”
Do you think that conservatism is on the verge of a rebirth? I think once more people start to feel the hurt of higher taxes and the effects of Obamacare that it is probable that there will be a resurgence of conservative principles. But I think it may take a year or two before it happens.

Thank you for the linkage. I appreciate it.

Thank you kind lady.

Yeah, it is. So many things will cause it, such as how Obamacare forces medium and large employers to either fire workers to become smaller, or cut people's houses from 40 to 30 in order to avoid the Obamacare punishment.

My pleasure AOW and Odie.

I think you are right Dmarks. A conservative resurgence will come soon. Thanks for your comment.
