The Elephant in the Room: Evangelicals, Libertarians and the Battle to Control the Republican Party
If the Republican Party is no longer the party of Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, Newt Gingrich, limited government, or fiscal restraint, then what is it? And what’s a self-respecting, small-government, fiscally conservative, socially liberal voter supposed to do? In his new book, Ryan Sager argues that George W. Bush’s brand of big-government, big-religion conservatism risks causing a serious split in the GOP ÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂ¢?ÃÂ¬ÃÂ¢?ÃÂ in particular, between the traditional South and the “leave me alone” states of the interior West, such as Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Montana. Please join us for a spirited discussion of the Republican Party’s present and future.
