Pence, Kristol, Armey, Goldberg, and Barone
Off-year elections and opinion surveys suggest that the public is increasingly frustrated with the current direction of public policy. It seems to many that Washington is out of touch with the concerns of the American people, pursuing sweeping overhauls of health care, education, and environmental regulation, while ignoring immediate concerns like disappearing jobs and the likelihood of greatly increased taxes to cover runaway government spending. Clearly, liberalism has provoked a populist insurgency against its ambitious plans for making

Vision and Philanthropy. The 2005 Bradley Symposium
On February 16, 2005, the Bradley Center brought together twenty-one prominent conservative thinkers, writers, and philanthropists to discuss these essential questions. The day’s keynote address was given by White House Director of Strategic Initiatives Peter Wehner. Nearly 150 invited guests attended the event.
What's the Big Idea? True Blue vs. Deep Red: The Ideas that Move American Politics
Who Are We Today? American Character and Identity in the Twenty-First Century
Who are we today? American conservatism has always prided itself on its ability to define and defend our national sense of self. Liberalism, on the other hand, often seems less resistant – sometimes even hospitable – to corrosive contemporary trends. What can we do to halt or reverse corrosive trends? What in particular can philanthropy contribute to this effort?
Commissioned essays on these questions by Wilfred McClay of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Manhattan Institute's John McWhorter, and Fr. Richard John Neuhaus of First Things served as the basis for discussion at the 2007 Bradley Symposium, held on May 3. Ten distinguished panelists joined an audience of approximately 150 invited guests in vigorous discussion.
Encounter at 10: The Power of Ideas. The 2008 Bradley Symposium
Making Conservatism Credible Again. The 2009 Bradley Symposium
Many pundits today suggest that conservative ideas have been consigned to the ash heap of history, and that the only important political question we face is how dramatic America’s turn toward liberalism will be. But even in these tough times, some conservatives have managed not only to reaffirm their beliefs, but to find success with the electorate as well. The 2009 Bradley Symposium featured two such officials, reflecting on ways American conservatism can be made credible once again: Congressman Paul Ryan (R–WI) and Governor Mitch Daniels (R–IN).
