One hundred and two years ago Teddy Roosevelt split the Republican Party to advance his progressive agenda. Progressivism, or Big Government Republicanism, became the philosophy of the Republican Party's establishment elite. Fifty years ago conservatives began a battle for control of the party.
National polls show that the American people self-identify as conservatives by a margin of 2 to 1 or more. Despite the scandals surrounding the White House, the outrageous failure of ObamaCare, and the lack of leadership from Congress, the Republican Party has failed to win key elections because it has failed to deliver on its promises to roll back the tide of Big Government.
In his new book, Takeover, author and strategist Richard Viguerie argues that now is the time to establish limited-government, constitutional conservatism as the governing philosophy of the Republican Party and bring sanity back to Congress and the White House. He reflects not only upon the storied history of the battle for the soul of Republican Party, but also examines what is necessary for conservatives to win this party civil war.
