The Honorable Alternative:
A Conservative Case for Johnson/Weld in 2016
In the extraordinary election of 2016, "regular" Republicans and normal conservatives have found themselves looking for a lifeboat option -- an alternative to two major-party candidates who don't reflect their values. In a rare event, a third party (the Libertarian Party) has nominated a ticket of two highly qualified former state governors, both of whom served as Republicans. This extraordinary turn of events has created an honorable alternative for mainstream conservatives as well as moderates who are looking for something better than what the major parties have served up.
- Read a sample chapter on foreign policy -- what our place should be in the world, and why we need a serious debate about whether a Clinton Doctrine, a Trump Doctrine, or a Johnson Doctrine should guide the next four years.
- Read a sample chapter on law and order -- and why the smart and conservative strategy for greater safety and security requires going deeper than superficial arguments about policing
This short book is intended for the reader (and voter) who is pressed for time. It is intended to take a little under an hour to read, with chapters devoted to specific key issues of importance to conservatives. It is not enough simply to be against something, and this election is too important to sit out. There is a positive, affirmative case to be made for a vote with honor in the 2016 election.
