In Proud to Be Right, Jonah Goldberg, the New York Times bestselling author of Liberal Fascism, presents voices of the next Conservative generation. A fresh and provocative collection of lively political writing from right wing writers under the age of 30, Proud to Be Right rebuts the conventional wisdom that Generation Y is a uniformly liberal demographic—and that intelligent young people today fall blindly into the Barack Obama camp.
