"In 'We Won't Get Fooled Again', Steve and Gregg expose what I discovered long go, that there as been a conservative industry created. Consultants, pundits, media types and even some in the faith community use push button issues to drive us to the polls to vote for certain candidates to protect their deal. Conservative voters have to ask the tough question: 'Are we moving the dial?' This is a must read for every conservative voter and if you start reading it, you won't want to put it down." ─ J.C. Watts Jr., Former U.S. Congressman from Oklahoma
“Steve Deace and Gregg Jackson have certainly stirred the pot with their new book. Some of the interviews will make you squirm, and all of them will make you ask the question: As Christians, have we put our trust in the political system more than the truth of the gospel?” ─ Michael L. Brown, Ph.D., host, the Line of Fire radio broadcast and author of A Queer Thing Happened to America
“Anyone with an interest in today’s politics will find We Won’t Get Fooled Again an interesting read that is well researched. And as an election looms, following Deace and Jackson’s points is one way to make sure that the potential new boss is truly different from the old boss. 4 out of 5 stars.” -- ForeWord Clarion Review"Jackson and Deace’s first collaborative effort offers an unusual yet informed analysis of conservative politics. Instead of throwing accusation and blame like many political messages, the authors objectively critique where the right wing went wrong. More than politics, however, this book sheds light on the growing number of citizens who claim Christianity as the basis for their principles while walking a far different road. This detailed look at problems in American politics will challenge any conservative.” -- Kirkus Reviews

The authors interview those who have been on the inside and even include personal texts and emails from conservative favorites such as Ann Coulter. The content is nothing short of shocking. This book finally exposes the truth and it's really a must read before ever walking into a voting booth again. I truly believe that if this information gets in the hands of America's grassroots, we can restore righteousness again.
As a matter of full disclosure, this reviewer considers both authors close friends. Over the years I have shared hundreds of emails and hours on the phone with Gregg talking about the issues in this book. I just recently met Steve in person in Des Moines, Iowa and have shared dozens of emails with him dissecting the pro-family/pro-life movement specifically and GOP politics in general. I have been privy to most of the emails and have listened to most of the interviews addressed in the book. This book was a sad trip down memory lane.
The premise of the book is "to subject it to the same scrutiny...the movement known as Christian Conservatives, the Religious Right, the Christian Right, Social Conservatives, or Values Voters." The scrutiny begins with very thought-provoking questions that will require critical thinking on the part of the reader. Some sycophants of the Republican Party and/or conservative movement may not get past this part in the introduction. Those who are willing to pursue the truth no matter where it takes them will be well advised to continue reading regardless their initial reaction.
A very wise part by the authors is the "Well, Who Are You?" prologue where Jackson and Deace introduce themselves and give their backgrounds and how they came to write this book.Read more ›
We Won't Get Fooled Again does the following,
"We Won't Get Fooled Again is an in-depth expose of the so-called Religious Right, the most reviled and feared voting bloc in the past 30 years of American politics. However, despite all of the attacks and the acclaim, there is little evidence the movement actually has accomplished any of its objectives, which is why Gregg and Steve sought out leaders in the movement to get their take on where the fight for righteousness in America went wrong. Readers will be agonized, traumatized, but also galvanized by what these Christian leaders have to say."
Reading the book, I couldn't help but remember back a few years ago, sitting in a hotel room in Florida with my family, watching Gregg emcee CPAC and introduce people like John McCain and George Will. What an accomplishment I thought. His first book was self-published and ended up in the Top 10 on Amazon political books and was praised by the likes of Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. Big time right there. Sure, we had the radio show, but his book, the success and all the work that went into it, is what got him up there.
In this new book, I learned a few things I hadn't known about that CPAC experience. I never realized how disappointed he was by the willingness of party leaders to compromise on core issues. Instead of the wonderful experience I had imagined it to be, it was something of an awakening. Gregg does not spare himself from criticism.Read more ›
We are economically bankrupt because we are morally bankrupt.
For years we have been looking to the lesser of 2 evils to "save" America.
Voters never asked candidates about abortion. And yet the silent screams of millions of unborn babies were the canary in the coal mine, signaling trouble in all phases of political and economic life.
Romans 3:8 : Or can we say--as some people slander us by claiming that we say--"Let's do evil that good may result"? They deserve to be condemned!
