Liberty, Justice, and the Common Good: Political Principles for 2012 and Beyond by Ryan T. Anderson

Are SoCons once again playing into the hands of the Great Oligarchy Party? What do the past 30 years show about Republicans' true desire to do the things that SoCons ask them to do? Very little. SoCons continue to look for remedies to social ills (or morals legislation) at the National level, rather than at the local level. Only one contributor, Jane Robbins, will talk about any form of localism or "states' rights."

*There is the question of what good the Supreme Court can do in restoring the "nation's moral compass" in its role. Will it stem the tide on same-sex marriage?
