Talkin’ PaukenBy James Matthew Wilson for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
Devon, PA. FPR readers should give serious thought to the political philosophy and practical politics of Texas GOPer Tom Pauken. His articles in Chronicles and elsewhere, and his new book, Bringing America Home, have much compelling to say in favor of a reborn and robust federalism, a prudent and restrained foreign policy (I recall that Daniel McCarthy, in The American Conservative, noted that Pauken’s foreign policy proposal may not be restrained enough, however), and the renewed cultivation of stable communities and a moral civil society. In the following interview with Fr. James Farfaglia, Pauken discusses, among other things, our own John Médaille’s latest book. Have a look!
