From the Publisher
Massive deficits. Out-of-control spending. Amnesty. Nation building. Cronyism. Lies. Pandering. Arrogance of power. Corruption. Influence peddling.
According to outspoken conservative Richard A. Viguerie, often referred to as the "funding father" of the New Right, these outrages depict both the Bush White House and the Republican-controlled Congress. Viguerie says it's time to ask, "Can the marriage between conservatives and the Republican Party be saved?"
It has been conservative issues, organizations, money, and grassroots activists who have turned out the vote for the Republican Party. The GOP wouldn't control the White House, Senate, or House were it not for conservatives. But what have they given in return? Ever-bigger government on every front-the opposite of conservatism! Moral and social issues mostly ignored. A foreign policy in disarray. An invasion of illegal aliens and a "conservatives need not apply" sign at the White House.
In CONSERVATIVES BETRAYED: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, Richard A. Viguerie:
* documents exactly how the Republican Party under President Bush's leadership has betrayed conservatives and conservatism on most fronts
* lays out a plan for conservatives to once again take control of the Republican Party from the Big Government Republicans and to show how conservatives can move all public policy to the right (including the Democratic Party) by acting like a third force but not a third party
* explains how conservatives got into this mess, and how we will achieve a rebirth of conservatism
NOW comes the real conservative revolution!
