Conservatives should be grateful for the ideas that have undergirded the Movement for the last fifty years and more. They are ideas-like limited Constitutional government, the free market, individual freedom and responsibility, Judeo-Christian values, and a strong national defense — that are never out of date.
We should be grateful for the rising stars, like Governor Bobby Jindal, Congressman Mike Pence, and Senator DeMint among others, who will be leading the movement in the years and decades to come.
I personally am grateful for the continuing support given the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation as we proceed to build the online Global Museum on Communism-the first museum on the internet that will tell the whole story of communism from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto to the present-day communist regimes of China, Cuba, Vietnam, North Korea, and Laos.
