The Republican Party continues its trek through the electoral and
ideological wilderness. The party’s problems are evident. Its
presidential candidates have won a majority in only one of the past
six elections. Although holding the House of Representatives, the
GOP leadership remains distrusted, not least with the party’s
grassroots. Ed Hudgins believes a turn toward libertarian ideas and
policies would bring the party philosophical coherence and
sustained electoral success. Others doubt liberty should dominate
the GOP’s policies or argue libertarianism has little electoral
appeal to traditional Republican voters. Please join us to hear a
debate that will inform the next two pivotal national elections.
