Reclaiming conservatism : how a great American political movement got lost--and how it can find its way back by Mickey Edwards( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edwards argues loud and clear that conservatives today have abandoned their principles and have become champions of that which they once most feared. The conservative movement, which once nominated Barry Goldwater for President, and later elected Ronald Reagan, was based on a distinctly American kind of conservatism which drew its inspiration directly from the United States Constitution--in particular, an overriding belief in individual liberty and limited government. But today, Edwards argues, the mantle of conservatism has been taken over by people whose beliefs and policies threaten the entire constitutional system of government. By abetting an imperial presidency, he contends, so-called "conservatives" have gutted the system of checks and balances, abandoned due process, and trampled upon our cherished civil liberties. Today's conservatives endorse unprecedented assertions of government power--from the creation of secret prisons to illegal wiretapping. Once, they fought to protect citizens from government intrusion; today, they seem to recognize few limits on what government can do. The movement that was once the Constitution's and freedom's strongest defender is now at risk of becoming its most dangerous enemy. Edwards ends with a blueprint for reclaiming the essence of conservatism in America. Touching upon many current issues, this passionately argued book concludes that many of today's conservatives seem to have it all backwards. They have turned conservatism upside down--and this book calls them on it. - Publisher

The Obama administration's response to the recession produced bold initiatives that promise security and opportunity. But these reforms are complex and will take years to implement.

Financing America's leadership : protecting American interests and promoting American values : report of an independent task force( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relative to the average of the 1980's, U.S. government spending on international affairs has fallen nearly 20 percent in real terms and will decline by as much as another 30 percent under budget-balancing plans proposed by the president and Congress. An Independent Task Force convened by the Brookings Institution and the Council on Foreign Relations was asked to assess the consequences of this trend and to make appropriate recommendations. In its Statement, the Task Force concludes that the cuts adversely affect the ability of the United States to protect and promote its economic, diplomatic, and strategic agendas abroad. Unless the trend is reversed, American vital interests will be jeopardized
Balance of power( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Too often government only hears from insiders with access to money and education, which is why grass roots movements in the form of local and statewide initiatives often represent the best way for the average person to make his or her voice heard. This episode looks at the sociology of politics as illustrated in the California ballot initiatives Proposition 68, to expand legalized gambling [on Indian lands], and Proposition 71, for the support of stem cell research."
