Andrew Sullivan: The Conservative Soul

In this talk offered by the Cato Institute, blogger and author Andrew Sullivan discusses his book The Conservative Soul: How We Lost It, How to Get It Back. Known as a gay, Roman Catholic conservative, Sullivan confronts the conservatives in power today warning against the religious certainty on which their policies are often based. Political commentator David Brooks has read Sullivan's book and gives a brief critique of it, noting that religion in the United States is not as uniform as Sullivan proposes.

Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy

The American Left prides itself on a selfless commitment to economic and social justice. With moral certitude, confident of the purity of their motives and the evil nature of their opponents, they support a familiar litany of causes and programs: progressive taxes, affirmative action, greater regulation of corporations, increasing the inheritance tax, stricter environmental safeguards, consumer rights, and more.

But do liberals actually practice what they preach? Peter Schweizer dug deep into the tax returns, real estate documents, business and investment patterns, court depositions, and hiring practices of Michael Moore, Al Franken, Noam Chomsky, the Clintons, Nancy Pelosi, the Kennedys, Ralph Nader, Cornel West, George Soros and Barbra Streisand. All are adept at avoiding taxes, invest in the very industries they denounce, and abandon environmental causes when they impinge on their own property rights. While they cry racism and support affirmative action, they have abysmal records when it comes to hiring minorities. They condemn abstinence-based sex ed programs, but enroll their own children in such programs.

Ronald Reagan was the 40th president of the United States, serving two terms from 1981 to 1989. Reagan began his career as an actor, appearing in over fifty films from 1937 to 1964 while also serving as president of the Screen Actors Guild. After delivering a famous speech called A Time for Choosing in favor of Barry Goldwater's presidential candidacy in 1964, Reagan began a political career and served as the Governor of California from 1967 to 1975. For more information on Reagan's varied life and careers, listen to the audiobook of his autobiography, An American Life, read by Ronald Reagan himself and available on audio download. For even further insight into the mind of President Reagan, you can listen to Reagan in His Own Voice available on audio download, a compilation of Reagan's best radio addresses pulled from over 1,000 daily radio broadcasts he delivered from 1975 to 1979.

As president, Reagan served during the end of the Cold War, one of the most tumultuous and controversial times in modern American history. Partially due to his experience as an actor, Reagan had an unparalleled ability to connect with the American public and was known to many as "The Great Communicator."
