A brilliant book, very highly recommended. —Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Top 100 reviewers. This book is essential reading. —John Kelly, Detroit Free Press A powerful read. I devoured this book. It was hard for me to put it down. Extensively researched. —HUGEOrange Publication Review A must-read for everyone. A highly interesting and informative book. 5 Stars. —Maria Beltran, Reader's Favorite Review Over the past few decades the country has become highly divided politically. In the course of reporting current events, the concepts of conservative and liberal have become grossly distorted. At the top of a political agenda is the demonization of the opposition party. The true accomplishments and values have been suppressed. If this is not corrected, government will continue towards an abyss of dysfunction, disunity, and dissension. It is paramount that the US electorate is accurately and fully informed regarding the record of liberals and conservatives. Hence this book. The author was a Spacecraft Engineer on NASA’s Apollo program and a Computer Science instructor at California State University. He holds a Master’s degree in Systems Engineering from the University of California and has traveled extensively through Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. Among his accomplishments, are ascending Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Everest, and photographing total solar eclipses around the world. Living on the beach in Southern California, he is involved in managing his real estate investments, writing, and spending time with his grown children and his grandsons. http://cyberia-quest.net/BucketList2017/BUCKET-LIST2017.htm

Blending the historical, biographical and political, the wide-ranging Bright, Infinite Future describes how the values of the '60s are creating a new progressive majority in '16. The multi-faceted Mark Green—bestselling author, public interest lawyer and elected official—is our guide through contemporary American politics as Nader launches the modern consumer movement; Clinton wins the 1992 New York primary and therefore the nomination; and Green loses the closest NYC mayoral election in a century to Bloomberg after 9/11 in a perfect storm of money, terrorism, and race. As Public Advocate, Green is Mayor Giuiliani's bête noir, exposing NYPD's racial profiling, killing off Joe Camel, and then running against a "Murderer's Row" of Cuomo, de Blasio, Schumer, and Bloomberg. Starting with the consequential movements of the '60s, Green shows how a rising tide of minority and millennial voters, GOP's lurch from mainstream to extreme, and the contrast between the presidencies of Bush and Clinton Obama are leading to a new era of "Progressive Patriotism" built on four cornerstones: an Economy-for-All, Democracy-for-All, Compact on Race & Justice, and Sustainable Climate. Full of behind-the-scenes stories about bold-faced names, this will be the 2016 book for liberals looking to a "bright, infinite future" (Leonard Bernstein), conservatives wanting to know what they're up against, and readers who want to know "what-it-takes" in the arena.

Set amid the flow of the great events, trends, facts and fads of the 20th century, An American Century is a non-fiction, historical novel that tells the story of an American family and the history of the United States of America in our time. It recounts the lives of three generations of the Bleucher family: Oscar and Lilly, Paul and Josephine, and Jack and Kathy, as well as others. Follow their exploits during the Progressive Era, from the Klondike Gold Rush to the San Francisco Earthquake, to life on a Blackfeet Indian reservation, through the Great War and the Red Scare, the Roaring Twenties and Prohibition, the Crash and the Great Depression, and World War II. Readers will also relive the Fabulous Fifties, the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Swinging Sixties, the Vietnam War and Resistance, the Age of Reagan, and the Gulf War and Globalization, until the climax on September 11, 2001. An American Century features scenes with such historical figures as Henry Luce, Lucky Luciano, Allen Dulles, John F. Kennedy, Clare Boothe Luce, Ronald Reagan, Arthur Schlesinger and John Kennedy Jr., and offers a fact-based but ultimately little-known theory of the Kennedy assassination, the mystery of the century.Blending the art of modern storytelling with historically accurate details, it is a novel of love and war and peace, ambition and pride and loss, courage and despair and hope, as well as the tender moments that are important in every life. Fans of literature set in history will love An American Century, the epic saga of a good family and the chronicle of a great empire, illuminating one hundred years of Americana. About the Author: John W. Kirshon is a journalist, writer and editor with more than 30 years of experience at The New York Times, the Associated Press, and CBS News.

A former Sunday school teacher and Hollywood actor, Ronald Reagan was an unlikely candidate for president. His charisma, conviction, and leadership earned him the governorship of California, from which he launched his successful bid to become the fortieth president of the United States in 1980. Reagan's political legacy continues to be the standard by which all conservatives are judged. In The Enduring Reagan, editor Charles W. Dunn brings together eight prominent scholars to examine the political career and legacy of Ronald Reagan. This anthology offers a bold reassessment of the Reagan years and the impact they had on the United States and the world.
Buckley would later go on to establish himself as a staunch opponent of socialism and communism. ... Buckley announced that we now lived in "a liberal world" and that he would not submit but would stand "athwart history yelling Stop!

Voting is an opportunity to promote, protect, and preserve godly government. Passing up this opportunity means allowing those who would degrade the name of Christ to have their way in our lives. The Bible is clear, "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established" (Romans 13:1). Since the Bible commands that we are to submit to government, we must ask ourselves: to what type of government do we want to submit? God in Government compellingly answers this question and covers other related subjects - often from a historical perspective. The book's emphasis is on how and why the United States has gone from being a Christian nation to a culture of secular humanism. How events like the Industrial Revolution and the Great Depression continue to impact our worldview and the way we vote. The reader will discover the true differences between the political parties, and why groups like labor unions, school teachers, and the media tend to align themselves with a particular party. Among other topics, we examine the Christian roots of capitalism and the truth behind the "separation of church and state." The book covers social issues like legalized abortion, gay rights, and welfare programs; and gives solutions and suggestions as to what Christians can do to get our nation back on track. RAY HARKER is an ideological activist and founder of God in Government, a conservative grassroots movement for which this book is the manual. Both the organization and the book are designed to educate and assist Evangelical Christians in the areas of civic responsibility and political ideology. The outreach provides lectures and seminars for churches and other interested groups. To learn more, visit www.godgov.org.
Revised and updated for the 1996 presidential election year, The Wit and Wisdom of Politics is a classic source of quotes from the world of politics. Chuck Henning is a reporter, lobbyist, political observer, and public official who has had more than ample opportunity to study government and politicians.
A lexicon of interesting political facts, The Politics Book is a snapshot of where the language of Politics has got to. It has always been the richest of languages, because of the vivid way in which many of our politicians express themselves, from the sound-bites with which they woo the voters to the devastating put-downs they use on each other. If a week in politics is a long time, twelve years is an eternity. It is that long since Brewer's Politics, the precursor of this volume, first appeared, and in that time the lexicon has grown exponentially. From Abu Ghraib to Zippergate, words, phrases, concepts, movements and people of whom we could have had no conception in 1993 are now part of our heritage. Twelve years ago New Labour had yet to be born, sleaze was an American phenomenon, no European Commission had ever been removed, a presidential election decided by the Supreme Court seemed inconceivable, and a chain of terrorist atrocities on the scale of 9/11 even more so.
