‘Tell me about Mississippi’

Last week, I received a call from the presidential campaign of a powerful GOP hopeful. A longtime member of the establishment, he was attempting to understand “our brand of conservatism.”

“Tell me about Mississippi,” he inquired. My message to him was simple:

We believe that political solutions should be sensitive to the whole human being – mind, body and soul – conceding that the problems affecting society are the result of the complexity of human life and therefore cannot be quickly or efficiently rectified by government action, schemes of forced social improvement or similar one-size-fits-all approaches.
