From the Back Cover

No longer can we be Barack Obama's sheeple and let the American Dream be trampled, beaten, and burned to the ground

Trickle Up Poverty, by bestselling author and revered radio host Dr. Michael Savage, is your best defense against the Obamanomics that are dragging the middle class, and everyone else, into a Marxist-Socialist death spiral. The Savage manifesto you hold in your hands shows how Obama is circumventing the Constitution to push through his radical agenda—and, most important, how we can restore our country to the power and prestige that Barack Obama and his corrupt and degenerate "czars" are trying to destroy.

The Naked Marxist can and must be stopped. Obama's trickle up poverty is infecting all that we hold to be true and self-evident. Here's how:

Impoverishing the Middle Class: Obama's confiscatory taxes, the socializing of our health-care system, and other legislative initiatives are taking away our earnings and our power to choose how we live our lives and putting it in the hands of corrupt and pro-Socialist cohorts.

Erasing Our Border with Mexico: The Homeland Security department that can't shoot straight is gutting the Constitution in the name of protecting illegal aliens when it should be focusing on keeping out the terrorists and drug dealers.

Defunding the Military and Putting Our Troops in Harm's Way: Obama's beatnik policy of taking apart our nuclear arsenal and destroying NASA, while implementing PC Rules of Engagement that don't allow our troops to protect themselves, is dangerously weakening our security and ending our military dominance.

Lining the Pockets of His Wall Street Buddies: While our 401(k)'s suffer, Obama and his Wall Street heavy contributors are creating their own legislation that is driving down stock prices while allowing his biggest campaign contributors to make trillions of dollars.

Propagandizing the Media: Once a forum for free speech, Obama's administration has systematically overrun the media in a hostile takeover with threats and false promises that serve only to pull the wool over the sheeple's eyes.

Ignoring the Tea Party—the Voice of the People: No longer a representative government, Obama is blatantly disregarding, and even suppressing, the fastest-growing collective voice in the nation right now—that of the patriotic Tea Party. His Union-Crony Purple Shirts have shown up at town-hall meetings and peaceful protests to intimidate and antagonize the democratic process.

We are dangerously close to losing the nation we love, but it's not too late. If you buy only one book to learn and react to what Obama the Destroyer has done and plans on doing to America, this is it!

Customer Reviews

This well written, thoroughly researched book was a most interesting, informative read.
It will give you hope that "We the People" can fix what's wrong with our country and return to the principles that made us great in the first place.
Robert H. Brandes
A book that you should not read yourself but you should buy copies for friends that do not have the 'savvy' to listen to Savage!

I am a voracious reader, and lover of all things literate. I will only judge this book on its ideas and delivery, not on its author. While I do enjoy listening to Michael Savage on occasion, that doesn't give me the necessary depth to judge him as a man. I believe he tells the truth as he sees it, but again, I don't know him personally. The book is another story. A book is divorced from the author once it is released, and as such must stand by itself - without explanation or apology. Trickle up poverty is full of good ideas and obviously well researched. One should read it for these ideas, then do some research into their validity, and only then judge for yourself. And some these of ideas are so crucially important, we have an obligation to look into them. I am not saying I agree with every aspect Savage espouses, but I recognize their importance to my country. As a citizen, I have an obligation to be reasonably informed BEFORE I go into the voting booth. Savage gives me food for thought.

I am sorry to say I voted for Obama, and regret the hole he continues to dig for us. The book calls it a conspiracy. I'm not sure I can accept that. It would take a lot of coordination to break the back of the world's largest economy. However, I'm not saying it is not worth understanding. If there is enough evidence, enough logical and irrefutable proof, then we have to accept it. I'm not convinced Savage has done that. But there are plenty of other ideas short of that that are worth listening too. The horror of socialism is real, and I have no doubt anymore that this is Obama's goal. And that is enough for me. If you need further reading on that subject, read: Ayn Rand, "We The Living," and George Orwell, "1984."

So why not 5 stars? The delivery itself can be grating.

I have to start by admitting that I listen to Savage. But I really do not like his personality. But for some reason I listen to grouchy people. And I like when he goes on tangents and talks about Literature. I was a liberal arts major. I voted for the President but I started having doubts when I learned about his abortion stance and still I was constantly lulled into overlooking the one issue that is a big deal. I keep giving Obama the benefit of the doubt. I kept telling myself that the this is the work of John Birch society (the conservative word that is) Anyway I do like Obama as a family man and how he is with his daughters. And I find Savage as rude on radio. But that being said I do think that this book has me questioning many things. I hope that Savage has it wrong but I have a nagging feeling that maybe he is right. The way he pulls all the facts and evidence together convinces me that maybe he is right. And it does reinforce what I have read from other books. I have read the Communist Manifesto and believe that Obama may be a bourgie socialist nothing more. But Savage paints him as a true communist. And seems to be right due to the company our President keeps. I have also read the Rules for Radicals. I am leaning more to believing what Savage is saying than ever before. And this is with resistance, let me tell you. Because I personally like Obama I really do not want to believe Savage. I hope and pray that he is wrong. I am worried that Savage may very well be right. But I hope that he is not. I have to admit I am torn and do not want to believe it but finding it harder to do each day something new comes on the news.
Part of me wants to say that this is all lies but Savage does a good job suppling information and facts.

Savage is beholden to no one, he speaks and writes the truth.
Amazingly, most of the stuff Savage writes about are things
in warned us about for years if we let the progressives in

This book is the blueprint for REAL change in America. It raises the bar way up for any politician looking to take a real stand against Obama. It is easy to understand and really makes you wonder why more men and women like Savage are not in Washington, or even on radio and TV.

This book puts the talking points from the Republicans leaders to shame. Their biggest momentum in November is that the Democrats are unfavorable, not because Republican ideas are very inspiring. With that said, his book should be required reading for every Republican leader. The answers are clear, make plain sense, and gives us voters a new standard of what to look for in elected politicians going forward.

The day of the pretty boy, slick haired, smooth talking, postcard smile empty suit politician is OVER. Americans of different races, backgrounds, and political sides are appalled at what is happening to our great country. We all wanted change from Bush, but not this mess we are in now. Obama and his liberal friends are finding out that America is NOT as liberal as they thought! WE ARE NOT! They will find out in November that they cannot fit us into their shoebox.

Thank you Michael Savage for this book. We will vote the Democrats out at the ballot box with it in our pockets, and hold Republicans feet to the fire with the same book on our nightstands.
