Newt's Five Challenges

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, is one my favorite politicians. Indeed, he is a politician, and he certainly has some baggage, but many of his ideas resonate with me. Here are his five challenges to Americans. These are things he says we must be willing to do if we, as a nation, are to survive.
  • Confronting a world in which America's enemies, including the irreconcilable wing of Islam and rogue dictatorships, could acquire and use nuclear or biological weapons;
  • Defending God in the public square;
  • Protecting America's unique civilization;
  • Competing in the global economy in an era of the economic rise of China and India, which will require transformations in litigation, education, taxation, regulation, and environmental, energy and health policies for America to continue to be the most successful economy in the world;
  • Promoting active, healthy aging so more people can live longer, which will require dramatic transformation in pensions, Social Security and health care.
