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 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!
