More About the Author

Jake Shannon (1973 - ) was born in Colorado and has worked in a hodgepodge of professions including "Quant" (i.e., financial mathematician), serial entrepreneur, Discordian Pope, radio talk show host, Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Utah, Luchador (i.e., mexican wrestler), and Comedy Hypnotist before settling upon pursuing an unwitting vow of poverty as an independent writer, practical magician (Chaos Magick) and more importantly, as a stay-at-home dad (his greatest accomplishment by far). He currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah (which still surprises him) with his lovely wife, three bright children and three loyal dogs.

Very interesting book, gets to the point really quickly without wasting time and space with showboating. Gives a whole new view on recent politics. Also excellently sourced.

Jake Shannon writes a book that any confused, TRUE Liberty-enthused Tea Party American will thoroughly enjoy. The fact is that the Tea Party HAS been hijacked, and this book provides excellent material to illustrate just how that was done. This book explains the background behind what is currently going on in Conservative Society. It is well cited, and is a must read for those who disapprove of the neo-con mindset that is infesting the once admirable Tea Party movement. This really is Jake Shannon's coming out party as an author and politician. Additionally, it was a quick read (around 100 pages) that will keep you LOCKED in throughout.
