RIP Stan Evans

“M. Stanton Evans, an early leader of the conservative movement in American politics and an author of its central manifesto, the Sharon Statement, died on Tuesday at a nursing home in Leesburg, Va. He was 80.”

“[He] viewed the United States Constitution as the consummate prescription for limited government, calling it the best arrangement yet devised for empowering government to fulfill its proper role, while restraining it from the concentration and abuse of power.”
