Publisher Comments:

Popular political pundit Bill Scher — whom the Hartford Advocate has called "one of the sharpest political minds around" — presents a bold, pragmatic plan to revitalize America.

Frustrated liberals are mired in the political wilderness, while disgruntled Democrats and Republicans have grown weary of unprincipled politics, shoddy governance, and the general ineptitude of our public servants. "Look, it would be a lot easier to cut and run to Canada," say Janeane and Sam in their foreword, "but we all have an obligation not to." To those willing to stay and fight, Bill Scher offers a 10-step plan to rally popular support for a better, more effective, more liberal vision of government.

To achieve this vision, Scher arms his readers with an arsenal of attitude and practical, actionable advice on how to:

• defuse the right-wing culture war

• communicate directly with the news media and encourage them to cover underreported stories

• protest in a way that reaches those outside the ranks of activist organizations

• join the growing online liberal community to effectively exert pressure on the political establishment

• embrace the term liberal as often and as openly as possible

Scher, whose Web log LiberalOasis.com is one of the go-to political sites in the rapidly expanding — and increasingly influential — blogosphere, articulates his strategies in a straightforward, vibrant, and accessible style that explodes the stereotypes of the liberal wimp or egghead.

Book News Annotation:

Progressive writer Scher pleads with his compatriots not to cut and run from the endless wars, torture and wire-tapping, race-baiting, corporate tyranny, and embarrassing stupidity that seems to be the business of the US government now. He notes some successes in turning back the tide that are not reported or not remembered, and recommends arguments and actions to take back the initiative. There is no index.

A number of recent books contain excellent analysis of things that are ailing the liberal community in this country, but they lack a plan of action.

Bill Scher's book not only gives you good information and arguments, but he offers suggestions on how to put that information to work.

The American people, as a whole, hold opinions that most would describe as liberal, even if they don't consider themselves to be liberal. Those of us who describe ourselves as liberal need to enlighten our fellow citizens. This book is a good way to get that project underway.
