The Republican Party’s Civil War: Will Freedom Win?



EPPC Senior Fellow Henry Olsen took part in a Cato Institute event on July 29, 2014, that explored the future of the Republican party.

Here is the Cato Institute’s description of the event:

The Republican Party continues its trek through the electoral and ideological wilderness. The party’s problems are evident. Its presidential candidates have won a majority in only one of the past six elections. Although holding the House of Representatives, the GOP leadership remains distrusted, not least with the party’s grassroots. Ed Hudgins believes a turn toward libertarian ideas and policies would bring the party philosophical coherence and sustained electoral success. Others doubt liberty should dominate the GOP’s policies or argue libertarianism has little electoral appeal to traditional Republican voters. Please join us to hear a debate that will inform the next two pivotal national elections.”
