Dear Reader: To successfully elect good candidates and hold them responsible to us and to our values, we must educate ourselves on the principles we promote, why they work, and how they work.

The Purpose of this page is to offer a concise reading selection covering basic conservative principles. By no means is this an exhaustive list, and we realize that there are many more excellent conservative books and articles available to you than we could ever list completely here. We hope that this list can serve as just a starting point for those wanting to learn more about the history and foundations of conservatism, which we believe is the foundation of good government. Happy Reading!
