M. Stanton EvansBarry GoldwaterRonald Reagan
What was driving people was the philosophy. It was the ideas, it was the principles, not power for its own sake, not just being there to be part of the system, not playing the game. It was standing up for principles that were basic to the conservative movement. That’s something that pragmatism and accommodation, waffling cannot supply, that is the commitment and motivation of people who are moved by principle, that is the greatest asset to the conservative movement has had.\
