Margaret Hoover American Individualism
Hoover is the author of the book, American Individualism. In the book she challenges the up-and-coming millennial generation to take another look at the Republican Party. Although millennials rarely identify themselves as Republicans, Hoover contends that these young men and women who helped elect President Barack Obama are sympathetic to the fundamental principles of conservatism.
She believes that her party is uniquely positioned to offer solutions for the most pressing problems facing America—skyrocketing debt and deficits, immigration, crises in education, a war against Islamist supremacy—but that it is held back by the outsize influence within the party of social and religious conservatives. American Individualism is Hoover’s call to action for Republicans to embrace a conservatism that emphasizes individual freedom both the realm of social issues and economic policy in order to appeal to the new generation of voters.
