Publisher Comments:

In classic Earthworks' easy-to-read style, 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right offers inspirational yet practical advice for anyone wanting to reclaim democracy in America, outlining what steps can be taken to restore a balance of political power through everyday actions...and why they matter so much. From the simplest efforts (why bumper stickers count) to more committed ones (become a precinct captain) and everything in-between, this small volume packs a punch.

Aimed at anyone who is disgruntled with the current political quagmire of lies, deception, uncertainty in Iraq, or anyone who recognizes that our most basic freedoms (free speech, privacy, fair elections, truthful and transparent media, to name a few) are slipping away, this book is a call to action. It encourages readers to stand up for their values, to reclaim patriotism and faith, and, together, to build truly democratic communities. 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right outlines a strategy for progressives to strengthen the bonds that unite them and offers concrete steps to express those shared values in the world every day.

On the heels of Stephen Colbert and the toes of An Inconvenient Truth, this important book offers many great suggestions for what we can do. Timely and thoughtful, it should be read by everyone who wants to change the course that has been set by the radicals who are in power now. We can do it.

Finally a great guide, full of ideas, to focus our attention on something concrete we can do when confronted with the appalling selfishness from the right. This is an easy to digest manual that inspires and gives hope. Get it, read it, do it!

Wow!! This book is a manual that Progressive activists can use to be effective in our efforts to change the course of politics in the US today.

There really are so many simple things that we can do and I love many of the suggestions. I especially like the ideas for reclaiming political language, reclaiming the churches and reclaiming patriotism for Progessives.

This is a must have for those of us who care enough to get off our asses and do something.
