“America is too great for small dreams.” - Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan correctly stated in his third State of the Union Address that "America is too great for small dreams".
While the Republican Party may have taken a blow in the 2012 election cycle, the conservative values and ideals that have been a critical bedrock of our Nation since it's founding were not defeated.
Historically, our nation has ebbed and flowed between the principles of both the left and the right. This is normal and to be expected. Despite the recent election results, I believe in my heart that people from all over the world have come and will continue to flock to our great country because of it's unique promise of economic and religious liberty. America is and must always be a sanctuary where individuals are free to achieve their great dreams. This is the greatest strength of our Republic and I believe one of the strongest selling points of the conservative movement.
This blog, Modern American Federalism (MAF), has been created to become a home for and a proponent of the generation of great American dreams. In this blog, my hope and aim is that conservative thought and discourse can be debated and refined in a constructive and positive manner with a strong focus on economic liberty and our Nation's proud tradition of Federalism. MAF seeks to expand upon ideas and dreams for the future in an environment that unites us rather then divide us.
RULES OF THE ROAD: This blog will not tolerate inflammatory comments degrading fellow Republicans (the term RINO is strictly forbidden). If we are going to truly honor Ronald Reagan we must again become a Big Tent Party. Nor will this blog tolerate inflammatory comments degrading our fellow Americans who happen to be our opponents in politics only. The sole purpose of this blog is to further shape and refine our conservative principles of economic liberty and limited government in the modern era.
I look forward to a healthy and intellectually challenging debate!
