Last night, Paul Kengor, author of “11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative,” a book that we have covered extensively at Blaze Books (review, interview) appeared on Wilkow! to discuss his newest release.
Kengor and Wilkow partook in a conversation on a variety of topics from what a Reagan conservative truly is, to President Reagan’s faith and what Reagan’s policy would be today.
On this last point, Kengor neatly summarized Reagan’s overarching policy:
“The best poverty program is a job. And the way that you do that [create jobs] is you cut taxes, you deregulate, you put your faith not in the government but in the individual — in the entrepreneur…you allow people to keep their money in the first place which they’ll invest more shrewdly, more smartly, more wisely than the government.”
Check out a clip from their timely discussion in light of the ongoing battle between the establishment and conservatives, and this past week’s events at CPAC.
