How do you define a conservative? During a presidential election campaign, when much focus is on the candidates and their individual positions, it’s easy to forget what exactly it means to be a conservative. Using the acronym FLINT – free enterprise, limited government, individual liberty, national defense, and traditional values – William Bennett and John Cribb explain what makes a conservative political view and why it offers better possibilities than liberal alternatives.
The authors are up-front in saying that not all conservatives agree on the issues discussed. America the Strong, at times, glosses over America’s faults and doesn’t give enough credit to the valid frustration that ordinary people may feel. On the other hand, it gives enough credible insight into the credible mindset to be an interesting read, especially for young people who can benefit from a critical examination of their own world view.
