According to the conservative columnist, even though conservatives and Republicans may do well on Nov. 4, liberals are winning the other 364 days throughout the year, or the “culture stakes,” with tremendous effect on our society.
“Election Day is one day a year, and the culture is the other 364 days a year,” said Steyn. “So if you’re not in there competing in the schools, competing in the pop culture, competing in the media, competing in the main-line churches, then the air we breathe becomes liberal.”
“That’s the default setting in society. Whoever gets elected on a Tuesday morning in November doesn’t actually make much difference. . .The reason candidates don’t get traction is when they’re trying to move toward the center. . . Effective conservative leaders, [Ronald] Reagan and [Margaret] Thatcher, take the two most obvious examples, move the center towards them,” he said. “Mrs. Thatcher had a great line. Before you can win the election, you have to win the argument.”
