This is a replay of the Michael Reagan interview Frank and Shane did on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. We're discussing his latest book, "The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan's Principles Can Restore America's Greatness." It's a 'rules for conservative revolutionaries'. The book centers upon the speech Ronald Reagan gave at the Republican convention in 1976. Gerald Ford had won the nomination and would face Jimmy Carter to retain the presidency he had assumed as vice-president to Nixon. Reagan spoke without notes, extemporaneously, on what the stakes were. It would be the speech that started a revolution. His adopted son, Mike Reagan, writes a book that both lays out his father's principles and then uses many examples to illustrate how his father put them into practice. It's a primer and a reminder that every generation has to fight for its freedom.
