Reagan’s ‘A Time For Choosing’ Still Relevant

Brent Moody, The Federalist

Fifty years ago today, Ronald Reagan gave us famous “A Time For Choosing” speech. The principles he laid out are equally, or perhaps more, relevant today.

Remembering Reagan’s ‘Time for Choosing’ Speech

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

This coming October 27th marks the fiftieth anniversary of that speech, the one that history records as launching Reagan’s own stunningly successful political career that saw him just two years later elected governor of California in a million-vote landslide.

Rush: The Republican Party isn’t Presenting an Alternative

Rush Limbaugh, RushLimbaugh.com

Voters never, other than Reagan, the lone example, never affirmatively vote for conservatism because it's never really presented to them.  It's presented to them by me and Fox News on some occasions and other so-called new media, but it's not presented to voters by the Republican Party.

Conservatives Be of Good Cheer - We're Winning

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

The leadership that Americans need and are looking for doesn’t come from Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus, or any of the Republican establishment.

Conservatives Are the Driving Force to Save America

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Obama’s New Containment Policy vs. Reagan’s Doctrine of “We Win, They Lose”

If Obama’s policy of “containment” of the Islamic State prevails, then we have just witnessed the first battles in a long war that will last until a President with Ronald Reagan’s courage stands up and decides that we win and they lose.

The Most Important Conservative Who Never Held Public Office

Although she never held public office Phyllis Schlafly, next to William F. Buckley, Jr. Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, is one of the most recognized faces of American conservatism.

Don't Weep For America – She Isn't Dead, It's Not Over

Jen Kuznicki, JenKuznicki.com

How do we save America? Stop weeping, fly the flag, ignore those who say it can’t be done. People are wont to say that the era of Reagan is over, yet, it was his optimism in the midst of gas lines and high unemployment and high interest rates that pulled us through.&nbsp

Ann Coulter Gets One Right (Sort Of)

Many conservatives may not like Ann Coulter’s tough and almost personal attack on the motives of Christian overseas missionaries, like Dr. Brantly, but Coulter was right; if we want to save America we need to preach the Gospel and do good works here rather than expecting politics to fix what ails our country.

Reagan Scholar Dissects Obama Defense Policy

Reagan scholar Dr. Kiron K. Skinner says the absence of a strategy is why President Obama’s recent speech at West Point fell flat for many Democrats and Republicans. As a warning to adversaries, it lacked credibility.

Rick Perlstein: Time to ‘Fess Up and Make It Right With Craig Shirley

We were looking forward to Rick Perlstein's new Reagan book, until it came to our attention that much of it isn't exactly new. Allegedly, without proper attribution, it draws heavily on "Reagan's Revolution" by our friend Craig Shirley.

The Scariest Drudge Headline Ever

We can’t think of a force less likely to bring about the governance of America according to conservative principles than the reemergence of Mitt Romney to fill the leadership “void” in the national Republican Party.

The Vindication of Barry Goldwater

Jeffery Lord, American Spectator

Barry Goldwater: The man who made Reagan possible. Fifty years ago, Barry Goldwater won the Republican presidential nomination as a man of controversy. Today, he can be seen as something else entirely: vindicated.

Reagan Knew How to Prevent Local Gov't Abuse of Property Rights

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

It's time for these Reagan-era property rights reforms to become law, and correct a poorly informed judge-made doctrine that allows localities to mess with our homes, our “castles.”

DAVE BRAT AND THE RETURN OF THE CONSTITUTION

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Eric Cantor lost to the modern Gipper, Dave Brat. Make no mistake. The Tea Party is not dead, and Reagan conservatism lives.

Reagan, Then and Now

Craig Shirley, National Review

Commentators and politicians are underestimating Reagan- again. Some have suggested that Reagan couldn't survive in today’s GOP because he was “a man of his times.” In fact, given his principles, his vision, and his moral convictions, Reagan was a man for all times, for all seasons.

LBJ's Great Society: The Establishment's War On America

After fifty years, American skepticism of the Great Society and the big government it created have never been stronger, and the embrace of the Great Society’s big spending and big government by the Republican establishment has never been tighter.

TAKEOVER Strategy Defeats Eric Cantor’s Machine In VA-7

As conservative Fred Gruber proved by winning election as Virginia’s 7th District Republican Chairman, if you want to govern America according to conservative principles, first take back your local Republican Party from the progressive establishment Republicans, like House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who have hijacked the Party and turned it into a vehicle to preserve their own personal power.
