Buy a book, read it, and take action

6 Oct’s editor, Bill Scher, has written a great book: Wait! Don’t Move to Canada! (Not an link–I’ve heard that has some rather unfriendly employee policies, so I need to do some digging into that.)

What I like about this book is you can get through it in a couple of evenings. It’s well written, packed with good information, and tells you how to actually start making a difference rather than merely trying to motivate you. As an example, this blog here that you’re reading has been inspired, in part, by the book (even though I started it before the book came out–the book has inspired me to keep going).

Folks, our country needs us. We can’t let ourselves get discouraged. Even if the Democrats don’t fare too well in the 2006 election, we have to look at the long range goal. We need to build a liberal-minded majority and move the center towards our side. That will take a long time, but it must be done. Heck, the arch conservatives who are running this country today started their planning back after Goldwater lost in 1964. Patience is indeed a virtue, even in politics.

    In my disgust at the ongoing actions of the Gang of Four (Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice), I picked up Bill Scher’s book in hopes of finding some direction for my anger. His book is quite enlightening and ultimately optimistic. It gives one a sense that there really is something which can be done and that there are other voices out there in the wilderness. Liberals have to band together and show the country that our vision for America is the one envisioned by the Founders — a government “of the people, by the people and for the people.” Not one which represents close-minded, self-righteous, war-mongering, fat cats.
