Discussing the Future of Conservatism

This morning I appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to discuss “The Future of Conservatism.”

The interview covered a lot of ground, including what I deem to be the proper conservative outlook toward government and topics like the Federalist founders and Lincoln, the Tea Party, Pope Francis, the poor and poverty, democratic capitalism, income inequality, taxes and economic growth, the 2012 election and America’s shifting demographics, Reagan and Thatcher, the Bush years, and the Obama presidency. The host, Peter Slen, demonstrated the professionalism and fairness that is synonymous with C-SPAN. For those interested, they can view the interview here.
