About the Book:
America stands at a crossroads: culturally, economically, and politically. Enter The Tea Party Movement, whose focus is primarily fiscal conservatism, government accountability, and reduced taxation.
Currently, America suffers from a clash of worldviews, but the issue is much deeper than politics; it is ultimately a spiritual battle between good and evil. For the sake of generations to come, we need to win this war. We need to take action to defend our beliefs. We need to take the right road.

My Review of the Book:

First off I do have to say that I am Canadian and really do not know a lot about American politics. Although, I do have to say that I learned when I was in University that even though I have limited knowledge on American Politics, thanks to news and media, I know just as much about American if not more then I do about my own countries politics.
Prior to reading this book I had heard about The Tea Party, and no not just the music group, but I really did not know much about what The Tea Party stood for and their role in American Politics. I really found this book interesting and I learned a lot with it. Even though it is not my typical reading genre the book kept me entertained and it was very thought provoking throughout.
If you are looking for a book to read to learn about the principles that created and defined America then look no further. Steve Johnston does a great job with linking the America we all know and the America from the start. It was a very education and informative read!
