America is on the road to tyranny and socialism, and only a national return to transcendent values and proven traditions will bring us back to freedom and prosperity.
Americans hunger for something real to believe in—leaders and ideas that actually work to make their lives better. The current political system is not satisfying this hunger and people are rebelling. Polished, experienced candidates in both the Democrat and Republican parties are facing stiff competition from radical, but more authentic, candidates.
Jim DeMint and Rachel Bovard make a rock-solid case for why the principles that made America the freest, most prosperous nation in world history must be reclaimed to prevent our demise. Conservative is the simple truth on which this book is built; we all tend to keep what works. This exploration delivers the goods on what has and will work for America.
Jim DeMint is a successful businessman who served a combined fourteen years in the U.S. House and Senate. He created the Senate Conservatives Fund to get true conservatives elected to Congress. He is Chairman of the Conservative Partnership Institute and a bestselling author.
"DeMint & Bovard have defined Conservatism in simple, common-sense terms. This book is a much-needed force to unite Americans with positive ideas."
– Mark R. Levin, National Radio and Television Host and Bestselling Author
“Conservative is the most comprehensive exposé on Conservatism in our generation!”
– U.S. Senator Mike Lee (Utah)
“This book is focused on the science of Conservatism: discovering what has worked in the past and figuring out how to apply those proven principles to today’s challenges.”
– From the Foreword by U.S. Congressman Jim Jordan
“Jim DeMint, one of the most trusted names in Conservatism, teams up with Rachel Bovard, one of the Movement’s young, new faces. Together, they skillfully explain why Conservatism is more relevant than ever in this complex, modern moment.”
– U.S. Congressman Mark Meadows
"It is easy to call ourselves 'conservative,' but what does that mean? What exactly are we trying to conserve? The conservative movement is lost without an answer to that question. Conservative provides the answer—concisely and clearly. This book is more urgently needed than ever."
