Getting America Right: The True Conservative Values Our Nation Needs Today
Recorded on March 9, 2006
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
The era of liberal dominance is finally over, but sometimes you
wouldn't know it. Government spending is out of control, huge waves
of illegal immigration endanger our security and our American
identity, more and more Americans look to Washington for the "quick
fix," the government grabs for more power at the expense of our
liberty, American businesses
are fleeing overseas, and terrorism threatens us more than
How do we deal with these crises when our leaders refuse to? By
following the practical six-point plan laid out in Getting
America Right. Conservative leaders, Edwin J. Feulner,
President of The Heritage Foundation and his
co-author, Doug Wilson, Chairman of Townhall.com, provide specific
steps that every one of us can take to put America back on course.
They argue that what will rescue us now are the things that have
always made this nation great: free enterprise, limited government,
individual freedom, traditional American values, a strong national
defense, and the rule of law.
We must demand accountability and a return to our core principles.
What is at risk if we fail? - Nothing less than the freedom,
prosperity, and security of ourselves and our children and
grandchildren. Each and every one of us must get it right. And we
need to start today.
