JMI Releases 2020 Version of The Journal

TALLAHASSEE- Today, The James Madison Institute released the 2020 edition of The Journal. Typically each issue of the Journal has a common theme- either explicit or implied. It is our hope that you will see this issue as a little bit like society right now- a few common themes, narratives, thoughts that reflect a society being tossed about from wave to wave, looking for a break in the battering storms.

For the first time ever, individuals who were born after September 11, 2001 will be voting for President of the United States.. This is why, among the traditional articles from scholars around the country, we are including several articles written by younger writers in this edition of The Journal. Students, new graduates, young professionals- their perspectives and outlooks are of paramount importance because they are on the cusp of inheriting the reins of our society.

“If I were forced to ascribe one word to 2020, it would be chaotic. For many Americans, it is a year we would genuinely like to forget. It’s my hope that JMI can continue to serve as a beacon for hope that our best days can still be ahead of us. And in highlighting a number of articles from younger writers in this issue of The Journal, I know that to be the case.” –Dr. J Robert McClure- President and CEO, The James Madison Institute

“The Florida story continues to be the story of America – story of ranchers, entrepreneurs, service workers, teachers, farmers, manufacturers, parents, and children. Now more than ever we need to hear those stories, understand those ideals, and embrace those principles. For more than 30 years, JMI has pursued a mission of educating those in elected office and those they represent on the proper roles of liberty, government, and free markets. It is our privilege to continue that mission in this publication.” -Sal Nuzzo – Vice President of Policy, The James Madison Institute
