Editorial Reviews

Review

Rules for Patriots is the real deal! Deace pulls no punches in telling conservatives how to win NOT just how important it is. As a state leader, I sent copies to Missouri conservatives with the message "read it and lead"

-Ed Martin, Missouri Republican Party

Republicans are relying on Democrats to lose elections instead of trying to win with a mandate. Steve Deace presents some great 'Rules for Patriots' to start winning with conservative conviction.

Erick Erickson, Fox News Contributor

The American people, increasingly frustrated with the loss of liberty and expansion of government, are offered a tough burst of honesty and clarity from Steve Deace - whether it is on air or in his book. Steve shines the light on the Republican Party establishment and offers encouragement that 'we the people' can take our country back.

Rafael Cruz

Steve Deace has authored a superb primer for conservatives who want to win. Whether you are considering running for office, a member of your local Tea Party, or a concerned citizen debating the issues of the day, this book is a must read.

Mark Levin, Syndicated radio host

As a frequent guest on the Steve Deace Show, I know that when it comes to taking on the radical left and the Obama agenda, Steve Deace is without peer. We need more folks like Steve who are fearless in their advocacy for protecting the freedoms and liberties that make this country great. Buy his book - you won't regret it.

Chris Chocola, Club for Growth

One thing is for certain, Steve Deace will never be confused with Joel Osteen. In Rules for Patriots Steve lays out the good, the bad and the ugly on the condition of our country and then lays out a game plan for conservatives to regain a real place on impact on the culture including politics.

Tim Wildmon, American Family Association

You will never think about the challenges to America the same after you read Steve Deace.

'

Newt Gingrich, Former House Speaker

In Rules for Patriots, Steve Deace lays out a blue print for victory for conservatives - a blueprint based on drawing stark contrasts rather than painting in shades of gray. Deace calls for conservatives to fight rather than retreat, recognizing that without a fight, the Left will never back down.

Ben Shapiro, best-selling author

Clear-eyed and lion-hearted, Steve Deace is a latter-day Sam Adams. Every grassroots citizen who cherishes freedom and justice should study this highly readable antidote to political despair. These brilliant rules for political combat, if consistently wielded by an 'irate, tireless minority,' will undoubtedly save our country.

Dean Clancy, FreedomWorks

If you want to be able to say 'you're fired' to the people plunging this great country of ours down the drain, this book is for you. Steve Deace is one of the rising stars in conservative media, and he's able to tackle serious subject matter in a winsome way that's so easy to understand, even a Washington, D.C. politician can get it.

Donald Trump, American business magnate

Steve Deace has given us a punchy indictment of a Republican Party establishment that seems bent on losing again in 2016 with another Dole-style automaton. Deace's own plan for victory will enrage the hacks and hangers-on, which is why normal Americans will love it.

Thomas Woods, best-selling author

It is a great book and has given me new insight into the new, younger generation and why they are like they are and how they can be won over to a more conservative way in these perilous times in America. Well written, easy to follow and well worth the money to buy.

You ever get tired of yelling at the news on TV or talk radio out of frustration? Those folks in D.C. never seem to hear us--and they certainly aren't working for us anymore. How do we change things? Rules for Patriots is the simple battle plan. It's the Ten Commandments of political warfare for those who want to see this country return to the principles on which it was founded: freedom, individual accountability and responsibility, and a free market system.

Rules for Patriots is the battle cry for those who are ready to fight smart in the political realm. Sometimes funny, very revealing, eerily insightful, but always on point--this book finally answers the question, "Yes, but what do we DO about it?!"

SPOILER ALERT: If you are a frequent listener to the Steve Deace Show, much of the book will seem redundant because you've already heard much of what is in the book on his nationally syndicated radio program. But there are some segments of society for whom this book should be required reading. The first group would be every low-information voter who thinks he's a patriot but keeps electing statists to public office and then wonders why the country is circling the bowl. The second group should be every gutless elected official who claims during the campaign season to be a conservative yet refuses to stand up and fight when it really matters, and then casts a ceremonial vote that will have absolutely no impact just so they can say "See? I voted against that monstrosity!" And the third group is those patriots who are completely fed up with the first two groups and need a game plan to fight against the statists and convert the rest.

Steve has a gift for speaking and writing in such a way that the listener/reader is drawn in by his folkisms and pop culture references and made to feel like one of the guys hanging out in "The Man Cave" talking politics with one of the most down-to-earth and yet wicked smart guys on the planet. And by the time the bull session is over, you can hear the fifes and drums and smell the gun powder, and you're ready to grab your musket and take up arms.

I had to read Alinsky's Rules for Radicals in grad school, and having done so, I can say that Deace's alternative is well-considered, logically argued, passionate and motivating. I have already begun putting into practice what I learned from reading this book, and I plan to send a copy to my Republicrat Senator. I highly recommend "Rules for Patriots" by Steve Deace.

I'll be honest. It feels like a stone frisbee glanced off my face when I read this from a christian pro life perspective. Good intentions almost never have good consequences unless your actions behind those intentions follow natural law.

The pro life christian movement had better wake up. How else can I say it?

Reading this book is a hard wake up call for any person simply looking for truth.

Risk having uncomfortable questions asked.
Risk having them answered in this book.

Please read Rules for patriots.

Steve has a way of cutting through the crap. We elect idiots who promise us what we need to survive and protect our kids... and then turn around and screw us.

Time to flush all the freedom killing politicians.

Government is good until you run out of other people's money. Guess what... There is no more money. The next step is iron booted control.

Thanks for sounding the horn to prepare us to handle the times ahead Steve.

This book will help you frame the discussions that are coming. There is nothing wrong with something good leading you.... Man always tries the bad path through government until he realizes he needs the Lord and returns to the good.

It has nothing to do with racism stupid.

The book takes no time giving solid steps spelled out clearly of what the individual can do. So many think there is nothing for the average person to do. Just read the first dozen pages and you'll find there is plenty you can do.

Are you happy that the republican House voted over thirty times they wanted to defund Obamacare and then when they were able to actually vote on the bill to defund it they couldn't even get enough votes to pass it?

Are you tired of this kind of politics from people we send to DC? Or even locally? Deace has been tired of it for a long time and has come out with this book to put an end to it.

Are you tired of people like Karl Rove raking in millions of dollars from you and having a 1% success rate this last election AND then being praised by the establishment elites as this brilliant strategist? Have you wondered what these same people would say about Sara Palin if she had the same kind of success rate?

Deace gives you ten political commandments with examples of how to defeat the elites on BOTH sides of the isle. It is a must read if you want to change what kind of people that we put in office. Or if you are happy with presidents McCain and Romney you won't be interested in this book.
