In this column, Rush Limbaugh makes a tremendous case worth considering as the Republican Party chooses a GOP nominee.
We are hearing Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee saying that the "Reagan era is over." Rush takes exception to that, and I agree with him. Note especially what he says about conservatism being a philosophy. A core philosophy isn't supposed to change at whim.
If the era of Reagan conservatism is over, it's only over because current GOP officeholders and candidates have killed it. But ideas -- especially great ones -- can be resurrected. It's too early to give up the ship.
