'Fiscal Conservatism Is Not Enough'

I spend 40+ hours a week promoting things like free enterprise, fiscal discipline, and limited government, but I have to say I agree wholeheartedly with Robert W. Patterson that fiscal conservatism is not enough. Writing in the current issue of The Family in America ("Fiscal Conservatism Is Not Enough: What Social Conservatives Offer the Party of Lincoln"), Patterson says the GOP needs to listen, "like never before, to its most loyal constituency and project a principled moral vision that transcends tax cuts, a vision that will resonate with the aspirations of middle America, not elites. If it does that, the Grand Old Party will not only save itself, but also might save America."
