From the intellectual leader of the Republican party, an unvarnished look into the state of the conservative movement today and a clear plan for what needs to be done to save the American Idea.

In The Way Forward, Paul Ryan challenges conventional thinking, outlines his political vision, and shows how essential conservatism is for the future of our nation. Beginning with a careful analysis of the 2012 election-including a look at the challenge the GOP had in reaching a majority of voters and the prevalence of identity politics-Ryan examines the state of the Republican party and dissects its challenges going forward. He also offers a detailed critique of not only President Obama but of the progressive movement as a whole-its genesis, its underlying beliefs and philosophies, and how its policies are steering the country to certain ruin.

Culminating in a plan for the future, The Way Forward argues that the Republican Party is and must remain a conservative party, emphasizing conservatism in a way that demonstrates how it can modernize and appeal to both our deepest concerns and highest ideals.

    I found Paul's arguments to be compelling and thoughtful. His stories will strike chord with any small town Amercan who yearns for the greatness of America. I was disappointed in the lack of detail, but I understand that in order to solve any problem there must be a sense of trust, without which even the most sound ideas will fall on deaf ears. I believe that Paul has laid the framework for a movement built on people helping people and helping their communities instead of relying on the government. Realizing that the country was designed to be governed by the people and for it to truly prosper the governed must be an involved part of the solution. I can only hope that there are enough of us who share his opinion, optimism, and more importantly his drive.

    I am impressed with the thoughtful ideas shared in this book. I pray that ALL those in Congress can find a way to build on these ideas for a better future together as a nation. I am especially impressed with the ability of Paul Ryan to work hard to fully understand policy implications and his willingness to work with all.
