Editorial Reviews

Review


“Michael Steele’s book is a prescription for not only returning the Republican Party to power—it’s an action plan for bringing the party of Lincoln back to the conservative principles upon which both it and the nation were founded. It’s a must-read for everyone who believes that ‘Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness’ is more than an antiquated catchphrase in a historical document.”
—Mark R. Levin, New York Times bestselling author of Liberty and Tyranny—A Conservative Manifesto

“In the face of exploding deficits, an attempt to nationalize healthcare, and the erosion of the values that made America great, Michael Steele is taking a stand. Upon witnessing the suffering of the United States and the Republican Party when it abandons its core conservative principles, Steele sounds a long-overdue battle cry for a fresh, energetic conservatism to fight Obama’s socialist vision.”
—Sean Hannity, national radio and television talk show host

“With wit and insight, passion and judgment, Michael Steele points the way to a GOP comeback.”
— William J. Bennett, the host of nationally syndicated radio show Morning in America and former Secretary of Education under President Reagan

From the Inside Flap


What Should Conservatives Do In the Age of Obama?
Two Words: Fight Back

President Obama ran on promises of bipartisanship and centrism, but he’s delivered something else: unprecedented government borrowing and spending, unsustainable debt, and audacious attempts to usher in a colossal, overbearing government, the likes of which we’ve never seen.

In Right Now, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele blows the whistle on the entire Obama agenda. Setting aside appeals for caution in taking on a popular president, Steele throws down the gauntlet, insisting Republicans must expose and refute the policies lying at the heart of this administration’s attempts to resurrect a discredited brand of extreme liberalism. In this provocative, combative book, Steele calls on Republicans to:

Denounce President Obama’s destructive bailout-stimulus culture
Resist President Obama’s socialized healthcare
Stand up for free enterprise in the face of environmental extremism
Oppose this administration’s massive expansion of the bureaucracy and the proliferation of unaccountable “czars”
Reject President Obama’s foreign policy of groveling, appeasement, and drift
Expose the hypocrisy of liberals who proclaim “tolerance” as a cardinal virtue, then attempt to silence conservatives

A call to arms for grassroots America, this book argues for abandoning “conservatism-lite,” returning to core conservative principles, and launching an uncompromising campaign for limited government. The path to a Republican renaissance has already been laid, says Steele: the target is the Obama agenda, the method is active opposition, and the time is Right Now.

Bonus: Foreword by Newt Gingrich

Format: Hardcover
Steele's book not only changed the way I look at politics, it changed that way I look at facts. One could look at Right Now as an extended polemic against Occam's Razor.

Let's take the problems with the Bush Administration, a good starting point for any GOP chairman. The left-wing establishment would have you believe that it might have had something to do with his administration's starting a war without really thinking things through -- all the while avoiding capturing the guy actually responsible for causing 9/11. Or his tax cuts slanted to the rich that ran us into massive debt. Or perhaps it was Rove's political strategy that relied on destructive regional and religious polarization. Or spying on American citizens and engaging in torture.

You might think that if you are still stuck in the old ways of thinking. But using Steele's complex logic, you will discover the problem with Bush was that he was too-left wing. And the only reason Republicans lose is that they rely on too-liberal candidates. I have to admit that argument would have never come to my mind.

Steele really challenged my whole sense of logic and no doubt he will challenge yours too. Just make sure you are sitting down first.

Michael Steele take a lot of heat, but that's usually the case when people speak the truth! Right Now clearly defines the many things that have gone awry within the Republican Party and provides an appropriate game plan for how to get this country back on track.

My favorite moments from the book are when Steele details his own experiences while growing up and the tremendous work ethic instilled by those around him. Unlike many hard nosed conservatives I understand that liberals want to help those who cannot help themselves and that is an admirable goal. The problem is that government does not provide the best solutions - we do! Compassion and understanding are things that start with us as individuals. Help your fellow man at sufficient levels and government doesn't have to stick it's nose into the problem. Understanding these concepts from a conservative born without a silver spoon in his mouth is refreshing!

If you like clear, direct and concise reading then pick this book up RIGHT NOW. Having read many of Mr. Steele's various op-eds over the years, it's clear that his views haven't changed and that's refreshing. He simply has a much larger audience that is now listening. Get one of the tools (this book) to help jump start a conservative comeback that is only just beginning...

With Right Now, Michael Steele's approach is that we get to the truth of things and then we can build from there......own it and move forward. That being said, he begins with some tough party introspection. From there he lays down reality-based, common sense guidelines to return to our conservative roots, and take back our country. Chairman Steele's book is an important work, and the timing is flawless. I recommend it without hesitation.

A top pick for parents or anyone uneasy about the impact on future generation of decisions now being made in Washington. It is a serious, candid look at why and how things have come to veer toward central control and away from personal freedom. It is a sensible but upbeat argument for making the kind of changes that really will leave America a better place for our children and grandchildren.

Right Now: A 12-Step Program For Defeating The Obama Agenda

Although I've liked Michael Steele from the first time I saw him on TV I was still very hesitant of what philosophy this would embrace. Some form of progressivism with a dose of pragmatism was feared but to my great surprise and immense pleasure I found a defender of Individualism who is also the head of the RNC! Who knew! I believe that no one has freedom if a single individual is denied his or her rights. I was (am) very influenced by the writings of Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, etc.). This is a man who, if he chose to run for President I would not only support but actively campaign for (something I've never done). If you believe that America's greatness and her future freedom and prosperity lies in the philosophy of and respect for the individual than this is a must read for you. I do not consider myself a Republican (they are often worse because they claim to support capitalism and freedom yet are too often incapable of doing so and take actions that are against individualism). I am an Individualist. If you are I think you too will be presently surprised by this refreshing book.

Mr. Steel asks what principle should be the foundation for debate and answers it as follows, "But what should that principle be? Does one stand out more than others? Yes it does: individual rights."

There is hope!! Right Now pinpoints the beliefs of the majority of Americans and itemizes specific deviations from principles far more important than political expediency.

A very great book. It was a real eye opener to me. I would recommend it highly to every american. It really goes in depth on how the obama administration is destroying our economy, spending tax dollars wastefully, the truth about where the democratic and republican parties stand today, and much much more.
