The rise of the Tea Party provides the best opportunity in modern times to reverse the course of overbearing, out-of-control government, but to be effective we must relearn the principles of liberty on which our nation was founded. The Truth About Liberty: How the Tea Party Can Save America, explains these principles clearly and concisely. Unless we do something immediately, America's children might never know freedom. In fact, they're taught to fear liberty; in public schools and virtually all media, they're told that liberty is an obstacle to security, education, and the basics of life. Without the FDA, they're food will be poisoned. Without the Department of Education, they won't learn. Without the EPA, they won't be able to breathe. The government is their best friend. The Truth About Liberty shows that the vast, corrupt government of today is definitely not the limited Constitutional government established by the founders of the United States. Attorney and movie producer Manny Edwards illustrates with stunning clarity just how far America has fallen from the great scope of freedom intended by the founders. He identifies precisely the political mechanisms by which these liberties have been lost - and how to get them back. With the Tea Party poised to take over the Republican Party and implement more conservative governance, The Truth About Liberty proposes a radical return to the founding principles of strictly limited government and minimal taxation. Virtually every product or service now provided by the government can be provided instead in an unregulated market - even roads, utilities, and national security. The staggering implications are examined with humor and keen insight into human nature. The Tea Party has rejected the statist leadership of the Republican Party, but has not yet embraced a completely consistent set of principles that will assure lasting liberty when they take control. The strict liberty-oriented principles of the founders are now found primarily in the modern Libertarian Party, but their stance on abortion has until now been a major obstacle for conservatives in search of an alternative. In perhaps the most important chapter of The Truth About Liberty, the author demonstrates that the property rights basis of the Libertarian ethic does not sustain a right to abortion and unites the powerful Tea Party movement with the firm principles of liberty they desperately need to grasp. In the final chapters, The Truth About Liberty proposes specific ways Americans can peacefully seize freedom in business, legal, and community affairs and provides a realistic roadmap to actually achieving lasting liberty in America... while there's still time.The Truth About Liberty: How the Tea Party Can Save America
""Liberty and freedom are precious and must be fought for and many generations of Americans have answered the call and heard the toll of the Liberty Bell. Now is such a time and ask not for "whom does the bell toll". For those on the greens at Lexington and Concord heard the call and saw the approaching danger in the forms of "Brown Bess" and "Redcoat". And when the smoke had cleared the deaf ear of the oppressor was pierced by "the shot heard round the world".""
