Tax Payers’ Tea Party: How to Become Politically Active — and Why by Sharon Cooper with illustrations by Chuck Asay

Since the vote for Independence was passed on July 2, 1776, I’m going with a political book the founders would have approved of. This book is about citizen government, i.e. a government that works for the citizens not the other way around. It is a manual on how to get involved in politics at a grass roots level. It encourages people to become knowledgeable on the current political issues and lists ways to effectively communicate with elected government representatives.

Monday Book Pick – Liberal Fascism

Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change by Jonah Goldberg

Recently released in paperback, the well researched book explains the history you should know.
As Dr. Pournelle pointed out:

Goldberg’s book is an anomaly: serious students of political science shouldn’t find anything here they didn’t already know. Alas, I had to say “shouldn’t”, because a very great number of people who consider themselves serious students of political science will be shocked and astonished to discover that Fascism, Progressivism, and modern American Liberalism have many intellectual roots in common. Roosevelt’s New Deal incorporated many elements of Italian Fascism, and in fact before the mid-30’s many Western statesmen had admiring things to say about Fascism and about Il Duce Mussolini who made the trains run on time and brought prosperity — or its illusion — to Italy. Goldberg documents all this as well as the Jacobin roots of both Fascism and Progressivism. The notion that human life can be improved by central planning and tinkering with the legal and economic system is the common thread to them all.
