Another Great Work By The Heritage Foundation,
This review is from: Getting America Right: The True Conservative Values Our Nation Needs Today (Hardcover)
GETTING AMERICA RIGHT is a most useful book when considering what it is to be a conservative, and how that ideology is releant in governing America today. By posing six, thoughtful and thought-provoking questions, the authors' are able to succesfuly probe the activities of our government of late, shwoing them as clearly out of tuch with true conservative values. The six questions: (1) Is it the government's business? (2) Does it promote self-reliance? (3) Is it responsible? (4) Does it make us more prosperous? (5) Does it make us safer? (6) Does it unify us? These questions sare especially relevant as the nature of politics in the nation changes, with "big-government" becoming ever more popular. Feulner and Wilson do a great job in showing that if our nation is to be as succesful as it can be, we cannot lose sight of what it means to be a conservative, and what government can do to be a little more true to those principles.
