America’s founders risked their lives to give us a republic - and dared us to keep it. But for more than a century, an insidious force has done its worst to rip the republic asunder: a movement of elites, academes, and politicians bent on reshaping the nation in the image of Marx, Rousseau, and - somewhat comically - Mussolini.The good news for the United States? Despite its appearance, the movement, Liberalism, is by all rights dead.

The citizenry must affirm timeless republican values and constitutional ideals - in our neighborhoods, workplaces, ballparks, and especially at the ballot box - to ensure that this destructive movement rests in as much peace as it deserves.
