Publisher's Summary

There is an underserved movement budding among young conservatives in which fiscal responsibility and controlled government spending remain crucial tenets, but issues like gay marriage and drug control are approached with a libertarian bent.

The ideas of this growing wave need a public, nuanced voice. The implications for the Republican Party if this philosophy is more widely adopted may not only spur major change within the party but could also revitalize its chances of claiming more power in our government.

Author Charles Cooke has coined the term conservatarian for this group, and The Conservatarian Manifesto is his explanation of what defines this new breed of Republican, what they believe on every hot-button issue of our day, and how they can effect change within the GOP. This audiobook is a blueprint of action and ideology for the growing population of socially liberal, fiscally conservative young members of the political right.

Love it!

I have been identifying myself as a "Conservatarian" for quite some time now. I have been advocating for this ideological merge to hopefully merge conservatives and libertarians under the GOP tent... and oust RINOs.... I have seen first hand that this is a growing trend in the Republican party.. the younger people seem to be naturally "Conservatarian"... I believe this will be the future GOP ideology..

Fantastic listen.. Why wont more open up?

Fantastic. Truly a work of rational and intellectual art. I only hope I can get my friends and family to listen. What slogan or campaign can we adopt to get the masses to willingly open up and listen? They may not agree in the end, but this book will certainly make anyone review unemotionally and think again. Bravo!

Brilliant

Cooke does a fantastic job of articulating the views of those who aren't in favor of progressivism or those in favor of theocracy. It's a libertarian viewpoint without the sort of "crazy" that gives hardened libertarians a bad name. Couldn't recommend this book more highly.

Reasonable and intelligent

I thought this was a very intelligent and reasonable book. And the author read it very well.

You should definitely ignore the lower average rating on Amazon because, if you look closer, you can easily see that the reviews have been flooded by trump supporters using characteristically vulgar language.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and mr. cook does well in explaining the views of conservatives and Libertarians and the mesh of the two together. also how he backs up his views with actual real world examples.

Absolutely hits the nail on the head

The direction the Republican needs to take. And a philosophy that would return the United States to the course of Liberty
