The nation's top conservative leaders will gather Wednesday at Collingwood in Alexandria, Va. -- a property that was once the site of George Washington’s River Farm -- to sign a document organizers are calling the Mount Vernon Statement. It is designed to signal that a united and resurgent conservative movement is declaring philosophical war against the big government and moral relativism advanced by the nation’s liberal cultural, academic and political establishments.
The statement emphatically says no to the type of "change" pushed by political leaders who ignore the Constitution's limits on government power.
"In recent decades, America’s principles have been undermined and redefined in our culture, our universities and our politics," says an excerpt from the statement. "The self-evident truths of 1776 have been supplanted by the notion that no such truths exist. The federal government today ignores the limits of the Constitution, which is increasingly dismissed as obsolete and irrelevant." . . .
