Hugh Hewitt shared his thoughts on the future of conservatism, as part of a symposium for Commentary.  From that piece:

It means insisting that the president govern as any president was intended to govern: only with the funds given him by the Congress, for the purposes they are given, only with the authorities allocated to him by the Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court, and only insofar as he does not injure the powers reserved to the states or trample on the rights of individuals.
