Newsmax is the nation’s leading online media company, reaching more than 10 million Americans monthly through its popular website, Newsmax.com, email news alerts and its monthly magazine. Forbes magazine has described Newsmax as a “powerhouse” in Republican politics.
The 2012 White House race is important “for the future of our country and in a very real way, for the world,” Reagan says.
Reagan, one of the country’s most respected conservative commentators, disclosed that when his father was asked to write a letter to be put into a time capsule to be opened on the 300th anniversary of the United States, he wondered “do I write about the freedoms we enjoy today knowing that if we don’t make the right decision today they may very well not enjoy the freedoms to open up that time capsule to read the letter.”
Reagan declares: “That’s how important this next election is.
“It is about our freedoms. It is about voting to make sure those people can open up that time capsule to see what my father put into it.”
Introducing an exclusive Newsmax interview with Gingrich, Reagan says the former House speaker “will help continue my father’s legacy.”
Gingrich is “a man who fought in Congress for my father’s programs, a man who believes that President Obama’s vision for America is a dangerous one and must be stopped and reversed.”
Recounting Gingrich’s amazing career, Reagan says that, after he was first elected to Congress in 1978, he “began to confront the usual politics and became a leading ally of my father, Ronald Reagan. He helped Congress push through massive tax cuts. He worked to secure a military buildup that helped defeat the Soviet Union. Under his leadership, Congress also limited the welfare state. As a leader in the Reagan revolution, Gingrich began to confront both Republicans and Democrats in Congress for their cozy insider deals.”
Michael Reagan also reminds viewers that House Speaker Newt Gingrich was the key conservative figure behind the Contract with America, which helped the GOP gain control of Congress in 1994 and led to the first balanced budget in decades.
And since leaving Congress, Reagan adds, Gingrich “has remained at the forefront of an American political scene” and “helped keep my father’s legacy alive.”
The Newsmax Election Special is airing on Newsmax for the next several days before the Iowa caucuses. It will also be aired on major broadcast outlets throughout the state of Iowa this coming weekend.
