There are many shades of Conservatism in our society. This book relates the Conservative principles of the author, and is a good guide for anyone interested in the motivation of Conservatives.
Approximately 36 percent of citizens in the United States currently identify as Conservatives. Much larger than those who identify as either Progressives or Independents.
If you are interested in the governance of our nation, you should want to know the principles that underlie each of these philosophies.
Conservatism is based on the Constitution. That document forged over a period of months, is a work of genius that could only have flowed into the founders’ minds as a gift of God. Considering all that has changed in the years since the drafting of the Constitution, it is a miracle that the document with only twenty-five enduring amendments is still a viable and vibrant guide for our nation.
Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms are strongly supported in a number of sections throughout the book.
Other important areas in the book are the portions that support the economic principles that have made the United States strong and prosperous. Conservatives know that Capitalism and the Free Market are the basis for the country’s success, domestically, and in the world market.
Conservatives believe in limited government, and there are sections on the budget, national debt, deficits, re-distribution of wealth, and taxes.
Conservative views on the important issues of the times are explained. These issues include: Foreign policy, national defense, freedom of religion, and information, the rights of states, voting rights, public safety, sanctity of borders, the environment, education and the media. The book concludes with commentary on the current political administration.
The future of America depends upon our values. Conservatives hold to that which has been tried and succeeded.
