I spent the last day of 2016 and the first day of 2017 recording the audiobook version of The Fourth Way: The Conservative Playbook for a Lasting GOP Majority.
The book can be pre-ordered now and I hope it will start shipping soon. I have a couple hundred copies which I am sending out to President-elect Trump, Vice President Pence, Speaker Ryan, Senate Majority Leader McConnell, other key legislative leaders, as well as broadcast journalists, columnists, activists and anyone else who can push the condensed message: Go Big. Go Far. Go Fast.
The Congressional GOP, for reasons detailed in the book, will want to move at its standard, deliberate pace, but that way lies disaster. It needs to embrace a Hamiltonian vision of big “internal improvements” –infrastructure investments– an sweeping immigration overhaul centered on the long, strong, double-sided fence, a 350 ship Navy and resupplied USMC, and massive tax and entitlement reform.
And it must do so all at once. As part of one big, early package of bills. Of course repealing Obamacare is part of that package, but the more moving parts –the more carrots and sticks– on the table, the more the new unified GOP government can make it happen at a dizzying pace.
If I’ve ever done you a favor or delivered a broadcast you enjoyed, help me get this book on to the desks of the Congressmen and women we need to embrace the them. Order it for yourself and send a copy to at least one GOP legislator. The call, write, email and do it all again urging them to go bog, go far and go fast. The new team gets one window. It last about nine months. If the book makes the best seller lists and creates buzz, its ideas have a chance of happening. Thanks.
