I do not even ask conservative to battle them, just to expose what they want and the results of that. What they do now, is try to limit the harm they do, and then claim liberals are just a little wrong. Every time they make things less bad, liberals lay the blame on them for liberal ideas being implemented.

That's all fine, well and good, but it's hard for conservatives to get the message out when the media is actively and unashamedly campaigning for the other side. Millions of people still watch CBS, ABC and NBC, and believe them to be relatively unbiased, when it's clear that they overwhelmingly support the liberal agenda. Obama will always be asked strawman questions, and portrayed as a success. Conservatives will always be portrayed as the b@stard offspring of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Grinch.

This same thinking is espoused every day in classrooms across America, from kindergarten through graduate school. That's not an insignificant burden to have to overcome. I'm not saying this to whine, but rather to point out that it's one thing to have a clear message, it's another thing entirely to get that message heard unadulterated, when many intermediaries are sure to warp it.
