A Magical Moment

On November 5, 1980, ABC News Nightline was devoted to the aftermath of the election.  Ronald Reagan won 51-41 over incumbent Jimmy Carter.  Republicans took the Senate and picked up 30+ seats in the house. 

The YouTube clip below shows us only the beginning of the program.  But it’s a great reminder of what lies ahead for movement conservatives.  Well, what lies ahead IF we continue to focus on moving the conversation toward first principles and away from the class warfare and Balkanization that Democrats love so much.
