Format: Pamphlet
Is a laudatory comment the author has written about his own work considered appropriate under the heading, "Editorial Review"? I would not have thought so.

If Dr Vance feels that the "Republican Revolution began on January 3, 1995, after the Republicans gained control of both houses of Congress in the 1994 midterm elections," how can he claim that, "The Revolution officially came to an end on January 20, 2009, when George Bush's second term as president came to [its] end?"

Surely the so-called revolution ended in the same manner in which it began--when the Republicans lost control of both houses of Congress after the mid-term elections of 2006. In fact, Republican control was tenuous at best through much of the period between 1995 and 2006. The fact that the Democrat legislature kept a very low profile until the 2008 election of Obama, and further advances in both Houses, was a choice motivated by a desire for overwhelming power which they understood would be necessary for instituting the radical changes they planned.

Dr Vance surely is correct about the failure of the GOP to represent the interests of small-government Christian conservatives, but he should use more care. How many similar inconsistencies should readers expect in his text?
