The American Republic Cannot Persist Without a Moral, Religious People—Rachel Bovard & Jim DeMint

November 12, 2019 Updated: November 12, 2019

In the eyes of former US Senator Jim DeMint and Rachel Bovard, what is conservatism really? How has it been misrepresented?

How is diversity actually a central feature of conservatism?

Why is respect for a transcendent moral order important to civil society?

And how do progressive policies that sound compassionate actually end up hurting the people they seek to help?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

Today we sit down with Rachel Bovard and Senator Jim DeMint. DeMint is now Chairman of the Conservative Partnership Institute, and Rachel Bovard is a Senior Policy Director at the institute. The two co-authored the book “Conservative: Knowing What to Keep.”
