POLITICS AND POLITICAL REFORM
Renewing the American Idea
An Independence Day Address
The Honorable Paul Ryan
July 15, 2014 | Kirby Center Lecture Series
An emboldened federal bureaucracy is replacing the rule of law with rule by fiat. To save the rule of law—and the American Idea—conservatives must counter the progressive vision of administrative rule with an agenda for renewal—a set of policies that comply with and fortify the Constitution. By advocating and implementing such an agenda, conservatives will uphold the rule of law and return power to the people.
A written version of Rep. Ryan's talk is published in the July/August 2014 issue of Hillsdale College's Imprimis.
