About the Author

Richard A. Viguerie, called the conservatives' Voice of America, transformed American politics in the 1960s and '70s. Through his pioneering use of direct mail Viguerie broke the left's monopoly on the country's microphones, gave the conservatives a voice through the new and alternative media of direct mail, broke the power of large donors by empowering millions of small donors to back the candidates and causes of their choice. His pioneering techniques helped elect Ronald Reagan as the first conservative president of the modern era. Often called the Funding Father of the conservative movement, Viguerie's advertising firm has mailed more than 3 billion letters and raised over $7 billion over the past 50 years. He is the chairman of ConservativeHQ.com and author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause.

Jenny Beth Martin is the president and cofounder of Tea Party Patriots. Born in Georgia in 1970, she lives in the northern suburbs of Atlanta with her husband, Lee Martin, and her son and daughter twins.

Takeover puts a fresh perspective on politics by refocusing the efforts of conservatives on the civil war waging within the GOP.

I was impressed by Viguerie's clarity in writing this battle plan.

Establishment Republicans from Rove to Boehner have trained conservatives to focus on "the enemy" rather than the issues. They have created an "us versus them" mentality that is similar in reasoning to supporting one sports team over another -- perfect for the low-information voter and perfect for politicians who never want to be held accountable.

Takeover offers a solution. I recommend that you not only buy it, but study it and put this plan into action.

TAKEOVER is the TOP book written about the history of the modern American Conservative Movement.

To understand the conservative movement in America, you must read this book! TAKEOVER sheds new light on many of the battles, strategies and tactics of the last 100 years.

However, "begin with the end in mind." TAKEOVER's most important chapter is Viguerie's plan for conservatives to take over the GOP and govern America by 2017. If you read that and the appendix and follow his advice you will be well rewarded.

This is the ultimate conservative insider look into the battles for limited government and freedom. Battles for the White House and for Congress are covered in great detail. Viguerie knew many of the players and was instrumental in many battles to set the national agenda.

Viguerie explains activist's frustrations and motivations working in the conservative movement to help turn the country around.
Richard takes you on the inside of the conservative movement involving presidential campaigns, congressional campaigns, think tanks and highlights the complexity of implementing conservative policies.

A superb history of major political battles in Washington D.C. You are right there in the middle of the action, with details about major political fights, financial battles, and negotiations. Strategies and tactics are explained and analyses are provided about the ultimate battles and issues regarding your freedoms and constitutional liberties.

Viguerie has many historical anecdotes and stories to help make his points.

The book shows the American can do spirit, how Ronald Reagan and the Tea Party got their start, and how you can to.

Viguerie has been involved with William Buckley to Mark Levin.

There's a lot of us, and we all need to read this book! Not only a great history lesson on how the GOP got to where it is today, but a clear path to reversing course. I really enjoyed Viguerie's 'battleplan' with real action steps of what all of us can do to put our country on a real path to liberty, not the one of crony capitalism and feigned freedoms the GOP establishment has us running full speed on.

I hope folks like Boeher and Rove read this---so they know we're not sitting idle while they destroy this country any longer!

Takeover lays out a brilliant history of the 100-year civil war within the Republican Party -- and how conservatives today can once again take back their party from the entrenched GOP establishment.

If Mark Levin's book The Liberty Amendments is the strategic legal and political battle plan for taking back America over the long haul, Viguerie's book Takeover is the all-important tactical handbook, loaded with the critical political and marketing tactics necessary to TAKEOVER NOW!

A few years ago I began to see the GOP stray from the Reagan standard of conservatism. I knew a third party would not bring America back to prosperity and toward the Godly values of our Founding Fathers. We needed the best conservative candidates to win their primaries, so in early February of this year, the Our Liberty Elections website began.

We found several excellent candidates running against liberal Republicans. These constitutionalists lacked the funds that their incumbent counterparts had. They also were desperate for the public's attention, so we posted our personal endorsements on our website ourlibertyelections.com and sent press releases to several newspapers.

Soon thereafter, I discovered a marvelous book by Richard A, Viguerie, which was released to booksellers on April 8. The title is TAKEOVER. Run don't walk to your bookstore and get this book or download it onto your Kindle, as I did. Everything that frustrated me with the GOP has been described by the author, and if you're not aware of the modern history of the Republican Party, this book will give you the best education possible. Richard A. Viguerie lived the history, which makes this a firsthand account of the conservative movement within the GOP.

Viguerie explains in great detail why we must work hard during the primaries to rid the party of liberal establishment senators and representatives. This is exactly what we have been trying to do at OurLibertyElections.com. The difference is Viguerie is the expert, and we are just worker bees, shouting to anyone who will give us an ear. We must put true constitutional conservatives in office, or America will suffer a death by a thousand liberty eroding cuts. My heartfelt thank you goes out to Richard Viguerie for writing this book.
