Summary
"Once at the center of the American conservative movement, ... Sykes [ponders] how the American conservative movement came to lose its values. How did a movement that was defined by its belief in limited government, individual liberty, free markets, traditional values, and civility find itself embracing bigotry, political intransigence, demagoguery, and outright falsehood?"--Amazon.com
Summary
An impassioned analysis of how the author believes America's conservative movement has lost its values traces his March 2016 challenge to then-candidate Donald Trump and his ongoing efforts to discredit the Obama administration, identifying specific recommendations for how mainstream conservatives can reconnect with core principles
