Why has the GOP stumbled in the new century, and what can it do to restore itself?
Rep. McCotter analyzes how the Republican Party went off track, taking on today’s big issues -- the bailouts and the economy, health care, and the war in Afghanistan -- to offer insights into how the GOP can regain the confidence of the American people.
Switching from issues to ideology, McCotter spells out the principles of conservatism that the party must not compromise as it changes to meet the challenges of the future.
