Mobilization: The Conservative Response

November 27, 2008 | NeW Staff

One of the frontrunners of the Modern American Conservative Movement and an important conservative female figure, Phyllis Schlafly, spoke out on what the response of conservatives should be to the November election.  She stressed the need for the grassroots to mobilize and pointed to the conservative resurgence that occurred after Lyndon Johnson’s defeat of Barry Goldwater in 1964, Jimmy Carter’s victory over Gerald Ford in 1976, and Bill Clinton’s win over George H.W. Bush in 1992.  Conservatives came together, regrouped, and focused on principles and grassroots mobilization.  It is a great time for young conservatives to study the rich history of Modern American Conservatism and apply the lessons learned then to the times we face today.
