Well written and fun to read, I believe it is not overstating the case to say that this is the most important book on liberal politics currently in print. With amazing clarity, it details the precise strategy the Democrats need to win back America and save it from years of disastrous Republican policies. Don't let the title fool you -- this a serious and wise book that everyone should read.

Scher's book methodically lays out the values that liberals embrace and that the Democratic Party has been mysteriously running away from for years. It is the perfect companion to "Crashing the Gate," Markos Moultitsas Zuniga's book on the mechanics of transforming top-down Democratic Party politics into a more democratic and broad-based entity infused and enlivened by grassroots values. Markos purposefully avoids describing in that book what those values are. Don't Move to Canada describes those liberal grassroots values and how they can best be articulated.

Scher, who has a background in public relations, explains how "liberal" was transformed into a negative label by the Republicans and how it can be rehabilitated by accurately framing the political debate, among other things.

If the Democratic Party adopted the platform Scher outlines in his book, they would have a chance to remake America as a country that embodies the ideals on which it was founded and which we have come to identify as making America great.

Bill's book is awesome. It explains very clearly the ideals of the Democratic Party, better than I've heard any of them explain it. I want to get all Democratic Senators and Congressmen a copy of this book so they can explain to the public what they (we) stand for and end the confusion. I don't know how Bill figured it all out, but his writing is very logical and clear. It's freshness cuts thru all the BS we hear every day. Bill, please stay in the political landscape...we need you badly!

It is time to reclaim this great nation for the people in it! This book isn't just about reviving the Democratic party, but reviving America's zeal to be part of their own government again. so many people in recent years have given up. They feel powerless in the shadow of a government that has been snatched from the hands of the Americans it's supposed to represent.

Bill Scher's book is "call to arms" for all those people who have given up. It's time to get back in the game to reclaim OUR government and this book is a great guide for the "everyday American". Mr. Scher shows us that deep pockets are not the only way to control a government and shows us different ways WE THE PEOPLE can once again be involved in governing ourselves. His mantra of Representative, Responsive and Responsible use of taxes should be the biggest buzzwords in every election for public office from now on. I will happily pay my taxes when I know that the money is not being recklessly squandered by the elected officials sworn to protect and preserve this country.

From now on I'll be making my elected representatives accountable for where my tax dollars go. This book has actually given me, the average citizen, concrete ways to do that. Thank you, Mr. Scher!

Solid advice for surviving these trying times and helping our fellow citizens into the light. Several books have been written outlining some of these principals, this one is simple to read and lighter than most; and in these trying times sometimes we need a break.

The title caught my eye. Figured it was going to be about leaving the country due to the increasing loss of freedom here. Was blown away when I realized that someone would suggest (even in jest) moving to Canada because the USA was not LIBERAL enough!!! In fairness, the book has a 2006 copyright and thus not privy to the last 5 years of "fundamental change". (am guessing Mr Scher is much less inclined to head north now). As for the book itself, liberals will likely come away with a smile. Viewed from the conservative side I also found it to be quite entertaining, although in a much different way. Many of the assertions made caused me to break out in (uncontrollable at times) laughter. One example comes early on (pg 11)..."Liberal views are so often dismissed, distorted, and delegimitized by the mainstream media", followed a few lines later with the author's "frustration with the media's fawning coverage of the Bush Administration". I'm sure that wasnt meant as a joke, but I couldnt help but laugh. Later on it is claimed that "Republicans have shown their belief in reckless government by running up massive debt". True enough at the time the book came out, however the Democrats of late have set the bar so much higher in the arena of massive debt that the case is unwittingly made against liberal Democrats instead of for them. The pot calling the kettle black would be laughable were it not for the seriousness of the impending fiscal crisis. Mr Scher further asserts that "Republicans want an elitist government that divides the nation", a somewhat laughable position given the degree to which the current administration has eclipsed its predecessors in this regard. At other times the author gives advice that would be good if only it were followed.Read more ›
