"America urgently needs a new direction. But who will provide it?"

The time has come to move the country forward with a clear agenda based on common sense for the common good.


Make no mistake: Congressmen Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy are proud Republicans. But they believe the party had lost sight of the ideals it believes in, like economic freedom, limited government, the sanctity of life, and putting families first. This isn t your grandfather's Republican party. These Young Guns of the House GOP Cantor (the leader), Ryan (the thinker), and McCarthy (the strategist) are ready to take their belief in the principles that have made America great and translate it into solutions that will make the future even better, solutions that will create private sector jobs, maximize individual freedom, and establish a better world for our children. This groundbreaking book is a call to action that sets forth a plan for growth, opportunity, and commitment that will propel this country to prosperity once again. Together, the Young Guns are changing the face of the Republican party and giving us a new road map back to the American dream.
