I'm reading this book and am having a hard time putting it down! I sent out a email with an attachment to just about everyone I know, to read the book too! I'm sorry I got it on Kindle though and think I'm going to get a hard copy. I like Kindle (especially since it lets me adjust the font for my less than perfect eye sight) but mostly for just fiction. If I want a book to "refer to", I want the hard copy. I'm the kind of reader that uses "post its" and high lights sections when I really like a book and want to keep referring to things.

But some of the points he made were like getting hit between the eyes with a two by four! It's such a great book and so well written. I've found political reading a tad dry in the past, but this is anything but. It's written honestly and with an element of humor that puts across the points so they are understandable and putting a smile on my face at the same time. It's helping me to realize that there's more to what we have here, than just who we elect. We've allowed ourselves to become so passive to keep the peace, while they slowly take away from us all the things we'd held so dear...our morals, our values, God, family and country. Like the writer says "like bullies on the playground taking away our lunch money" and we're letting them!

This book is a "wake up and smell the coffee" before the government takes control of even what we have for breakfast next! A MUST READ!

As the political 'Left' and 'Right' become more polarized some folks wonder why we can't 'just get along' and quit squabbling. The truth is there are real psychological predispositions that underlie our political positions that are not easily understood and stand as barriers to resolving our positions. This book goes a long way in providing answers in a format that is easy to read, highly informative and entertaining. This book not only assist in understanding why some liberal positions are incomprehensible but it also will reveal why you embrace you personal values. This is a reference document, you will need a copy for your library.

This book was a very easy read - well organized with very clear suggestions for talking with the not-so-radical left. As explained in the book, the far left are not likely to be persuaded, but conservative/mainstream Americans must learn how to reach the "uninformed" or "misinformed" left. I have recommended this book to a "green" Congressional conservative candidate and he was VERY appreciative of the tips. I like the message that mainstream conservatives need to act like what we are - THE MAJORITY! Readers should google the authors to watch their interview with Fox News and speeches at Tea Party gatherings. This is a great book!

This book is amazing. Very interesting on the thought process on our political forum and makes perfect sense. An inside look on so many thoughts. This book shows why Americans need to vote and become more involved, We are getting over run by the minority of attacking politicians.

This book is filled with such great insight that you must read it especially if you are a conservative activist! If every conservative read this book and then followed the simple steps for changing the meme, the political landscape would be completely different right now!I loved it and now have a dog eared copy that I reference over and over again!

Format: Hardcover
Mainstream America has not only been sleeping while Progressives have taken charge of our culture, we've been hiding, too polite to confront contentious liberals. NO longer. In order to save our country from Socialists we must strongly resist their attacks on our culture and beliefs. Daughtry and Casselman lay out the strategies and techniques for accomplishing this challenging task.

I recommended this book for our TEA Party book club to help us avoid the verbal brawls with dogmatic liberals that sometimes occur when we attempt to change their minds. Daughtry and Casselman say confronting these hard core lefties that only make up about 10% of our population is a waste of time. Rather, we should go for the bigger prize, the great mass of uninformed and misinformed persons who make up 40% to 50% of the population.

This is a hard book to put down. It is an easy read and packed with very useful tidbits. If we fearlessly follow the author's techniques, we will take our country back, one misinformed voter at a time.

The author explains how liberal values have undermined our culture for the past 2 generations. He carefully explains how the Liberal worldview has replaced the Judeo-Christian values upon which this country was founded. Liberals teach that our freedom comes not from God, but from the State. To this end, Liberals are constantly pushing for greater control over our lives by the State. They do not want people who think, but people who feel. Imperfections in the system are defined as unbearable injustices. In appealing to the feelings of the audience, Liberals pay little heed to the logic of their demands. Therefore, it does not make any sense to logically debate them. One must answer their accusations with a question, never a statement. For example, if they claim poor student grades must be addressed by higher teacher pay one could respond, "Do your realize this country already pays one of the highest rates per student of any country in the world and yet ranks among the lowest in student grades in Math, Science and Reading proficiency? How does throwing money at this issue resolve it?" The author notes that these discussions should be focused on the audience who witnesses them, not just on the person we are debating. If we can come off as confident, knowledgeable and calm in our rebuttals we will educate the audience and plant the seeds of curiousity in their mind to see the issue in a larger frame of reference. Moreover, there is no longer any "period between elections". We must constantly be in rebuttal mode. When national and local elections are over, we must turn our attention to our schools. Examine what is taught, or not being taught in the classroom and from the textbooks chosen. In other words, become involved and informed citizens. This is a very stirring and useful book.
