11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative

Perhaps no other president's name is invoked by politicians as much as Ronald Reagan's. But are today's candidates truly "Reagan conservatives," or are they abusing the memory of our great president? What did Ronald Reagan really believe?  

In 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative, Paul Kengor analyzes Reagan's presidency to paint an accurate picture of his beliefs. Kengor identifies these principles of Reagan 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.  

Many a politician has asked: What would Reagan do if he were president now? Where would Reagan stand on today's issues? Who is the next Ronald Reagan? Paul Kengor dissects provides decisive conclusions. The answers to some of these questions may surprise conservatives and liberals alike.
