The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea by Paul Ryan[edit]

Hello. I would appreciate it if some of you could expand The Way Forward: Renewing the American Idea, Paul Ryan's 2014 book. I did what I could for a start status with the reviews I found online. It would be nice to add a copyright-free picture of the cover inside the infobox. Also more relevant quotations from reviews and an expanded summary would be good. It's looking poorly in comparison to Hard Choices, so I hope you can help. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 12:35, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

I would hope this isn't about comparing the page about a book by an author from one party with the page about a book by an author of the other party. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:19, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
What do you mean? I am adding more conservative content to Wikipedia because I tend to be more interested in conservatism (isn't that the point of this WP?), although I also happen to have read Hillary's book (I haven't read Ryan's yet, though I intend to). I think Ryan's page should be at least as long as Hillary's.Zigzig20s (talk) 19:26, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
That's fine. It's just the way that you said it, it sounded like you were framing it as a competition. It's the difference between improving a page in its own right versus improving a page because it isn't as "good" as a page about a different POV. If instead you had compared it to No Apology, I wouldn't have said anything. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:31, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Oh, that was a fun read too. Yes, I only brought up Hillary's book because it is very recent. Anyway, this is getting off topic. I hope some of you can help expand the page. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 19:51, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

American Principles Project[edit]

The article American Principles Project (about the conservative 501c non-profit group founded by Professor Robert Geroge of Princton University) needs some attn from editors interested and knowledgable about the subject. Article has recently had over 8000bytes of text removed and tagged for notability. Appears to be a notable org (gets 128 hits in google news in 0.22 seconds [1], but I don't have the time to put the work in article it needs. --BoboMeowCat (talk) 15:50, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Political designations in blp infoboxes; or, "Is Orson Scott Card a genuine Democrat?"[edit]

The question turns on the use of the political party field in the infobox at blp's for individuals notable as political commentators. If that person is independent, would it be misleading to give his political affiliation, eg, a libertarian-leading conservative who voted for Obama as nonetheless affiliated as a Republican or a Lieberman-supporting commentator who ended up supporting Bush, McCain and Romney but who nevertheless prides himself as a member of the Democratic party? See the RfC @ Talk:Orson_Scott_Card#RFC:_Should_we_include_his_political_party_in_the_infobox.3F.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 18:44, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
