Summary, etc.:
Beginning with a careful analysis of the 2012 election, including a look at the challenge the GOP had in reaching a majority of voters and the prevalence of identity politics, Paul Ryan examines the state of the Republican party and dissects its challenges going forward. Ryan also offers a detailed critique of not only President Obama but of the progressive movement as a whole -- its genesis, its underlying beliefs and philosophies, and how its policies are steering the country to certain ruin. Culminating in a plan for the future, Ryan argues that the Republican Party is and must remain a conservative party, emphasizing conservatism in a way that demonstrates how it can modernize and appeal to both our deepest concerns and highest ideals.
