And even Mark Smith isn't necessarily against big government.
Bryan Carey
This book uses simple logic to dismiss liberal arguments, and it is highly suggested no matter where you are on the political spectrum.
Connor Keefe-real name
This book should be required reading for every citizen of this country.

It's amazing how much sense this book makes.
Growing up I always considered myself intellectual and freethinking liberal. I joined MassPIRG in college (Ralph Nader was a personal hero) and organized fund raisers for famine relief. Then I grew up, got married, had a couple of kids and all of a sudden the people I had associated with in college started looking a little kooky.
I actually read The Constitution and discovered that there was nothing in there about making sure other countries around the world liked us. There is a clause guaranteeing freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. The government as designed by our founding fathers did not include a responsibility to feed and clothe people who don't work by taking money from those who do. The military is there to protect us in times of peace and war; and maintaining a strong force in times of peace may have something to do with the peace continuing.
Within the past two years I began listening to talk radio and agreed with more than I didn't. (I will never be referred to as a "ditto-head".) When Air-America came on I tuned in via the internet (no broadcasters in my area) and was shocked to hear nothing but character attacks, name-calling, and a complete lack of rational discussion. Just as was described in this book.
Read this book and see how easy it is to pop holes in the opposition's arguments when all they have is a bag of hot air.
After you finish this handbook, a copy of Stein's "How I Joined The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy And Found Inner Peace" would be a nice companion piece.

I think you can tell from the title that this is not going to be a book of nuance, subtle argumentation, or an exploration for common ground between conservatives and liberals. While there is a great deal of good information for new and young conservatives wanting to get a handle on the comments and arguments he or she hears on the major media news shows, the New York Times and Washington Post and papers that run their articles, MTV, at their school, and so forth, it is not going to provide much beyond entertainment for experienced conservatives who follow their politics closely. So, here is a way to get brief and cogent responses to the statements your liberal friends parrot at you (no matter how sincere they might be).

There are twenty-seven chapters and each covers a topic of current interest. Within each chapter a series of liberal talking points or arguments (called Liberal Lunacy) are presented one by one and answered. Quotes from big time liberals are given and each chapter ends with talking points from the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (VRWC). Again, it is pointless to criticize this book for being sardonic, for not giving liberal arguments the kind of respect or even presented in a way approved of by Al Franken, that is not its point. It is a book by a conservative for conservatives. It is unsurprising that fans of Air America or the Daily Kos would reject this book with fervor just as those liberal organs are passionately ignored throughout the Red States.

On page 238 there is a humorous chart that compares a VRWC Survival Kit against a similar Liberal Survival Kit. It is an example of the tone of the whole book. For example, the conservatives would want a 9 mm Beretta while the liberal would want scented candles.

Great read. Simply put, nothing put forth by liberals (which is nothing more than a pseudonym for communist / socialist) will ever pass a litmus test for common sense.

Mr. Rivera-garcia is a prime example. Every law in existence is an infringement upon individual civil liberties in the interest of maintaining a stable society. The lazy (with a z not an s) are the ones who expect government to be responsible for providing citizens' every need and want - a la Castro, Dictator, Slave Master - rather than cherish the social and financial independence from government control that so many died to establish. Liberals are spoiled children who insist that someone support them, but expect freedom to run amok at will with no restrictions upon their behavior. Much like the "down with the evil corporation establishment" fools at Woodstock 40 years ago, who in the same breath complained because the food, medical, and other facilities were insufficient to accommodate the crowd. Where did they think food, medicine and port-o-potties came from - the sky? From the production lines of their "evil corporation establishment." Liberalism = Ignorance = Danger.

38 of 49 people found the following review helpful By D. DISMUKE on August 19, 2004
Format: Paperback
Though I count myself as a fairly well read conservative I found the "Cliff Note" format of this conservative primer a nice review of many topics that aren't raised in everyday conversation. I've passed it along to my 19 year old as a light read to help her as she is formulating her political basis. The liberal stand is certainly well represented in her collegiate suroundings.

I don't feel that this is meant to compete with Coulter, Horowitz, D'Souza and other indepth intellectual/historical think-tank type authors. But for the new student of conservatism or the not-so-well-versed, it can provide some snappy retorts to irritating leftist statements.
