More About America the Strong by William J. Bennett; John T. E. Cribb
 
 
 
Overview
We live in a culture that often dismisses and ridicules conservative values. By the time liberal professors, the news media, and Hollywood get through with them, many young Americans are convinced "conservative" means extremist and intolerant. It's a distortion that endangers America's future. Bill Bennett and coauthor John Cribb explain what conservatism really means, using five fundamental principles summarized by the word FLINT: Free enterprise, Limited government, Individual liberty, National defense, and Traditional values. America the Strong shows the next generation how these principles have made the United States a great nation and why they are worth preserving. It answers more than one hundred questions, from "Do conservatives hate the government?" to "What's wrong with having an open border?" to "Why can't rich people pay all the taxes?"

Discover a strong, clear conservative vision of America for the next generation.

Bennett (former US Secretary of Education and radio host of Morning in America) and Cribb (The American Patriot's Almanac and The Educated Child) join forces to present this primer on all things conservatism. Readers will be introduced to a comprehensive breakdown of conservative ideology, presented here as foundational principles associated with FLINT (free enterprise, limited government, individual liberty, national defense, and traditional values). Cribb and Bennett present their case with care and depth, grounding their points in historical detailsincluding that "conservative" is derived from the Latin word "conservare" which means to keep safe, maintain, or preserve. Throughout this lively resource readers will discover fresh new slants on formerly misunderstood principles that equip the younger (and the present) generation to speak about conservatism with intellectual savvy. Whether interested readers call them conservatives or liberals this introductory text will appeal to all interested in politics.(Sept.)
