What Would Ronald Reagan Say About Current Issues We Face: Russia, Religious Liberty, Debt, and More?
Description: Perhaps no other president's name is invoked by politicians as much as Ronald Reagan's. Every election, as presidential hopefuls jockey for the Republican nomination, each one claims to be a Reagan conservative. But are these candidates truly carrying on the mantle of Ronald Reagan, or are they abusing the memory of our great president? Paul Kengor, author of many books on Reagan, looks at the principles that lie at the crux of Reagan's conservatism; Freedom, Faith, Family, Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life, American Exceptionalism, The Founders' Wisdom and Vision, Lower Taxes, Limited Government, Peace Through Strength, Anti-Communism, and Belief in the Individual. We ask Paul to tells us what Reagan would do if he was facing examples of abuse of these principles we find today.
