Revering Reagan Not Enough

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2010, 11:54 AM

Venerating even the great Ronald Reagan will not fix what ails America, argues John W. Truslow III at American Thinker, because the "current political structure is broken." And "if the construction of the political system remains the same, then the outputs of that system will remain the same."

Therefore, Truslow writes, fixing what's broken requires more than a "three-part preoccupation with establishing a permanent majority, the cult of personality (including the veneration of President Reagan), and dubious tactics to secure required ends."

This preoccupation, he writes, "is a postmodern perversion of conservatism," and it distracts "from the core values that make conservatives critical to the sustainability of society."
