In The Way Forward, Paul Ryan examines the state of the Republican Party, beginning with a careful analysis of the 2012 election, and dissects its challenges going forward. Culminating in a plan for the future, The Way Forward argues that the Republican Party is and must remain a conservative party, emphasizing conservatism in a way that demonstrates how it can modernize and appeal to both our deepest concerns and highest ideals.
Paul Ryan is currently serving his 8th term as a Member of Congress and is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee. Congressman Ryan’s “The Path to Prosperity” was written to tackle our nation’s fiscal crisis. The plan helps spur job creation, stops spending money the government doesn’t have and lifts the crushing burden of debt.

Location: The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

The Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF) brings together leaders and key stakeholders in the defense community – including, members of Congress, civilian officials and military leaders from the Defense Department and industry – to address the health of our national defense and stimulate a discussion that promotes policies that strengthen the US military in the future. In an era of fiscal austerity where the threats to our national security are increasing in number and complexity, the RNDF will allow senior leaders from the defense community to come together with viewpoints on how best to deal with it. Though President Reagan left office many years ago, the United States military continues to benefit from his commitment and vision for a strong military. Recognizing that today’s decisions will affect the military’s capabilities for years to come, RNDF charges leaders from current and past Administrations and Congress to look beyond the immediate issues facing the military and explore how we can build peace through strength for American Security.
