An updated comment from the brilliant Bill Whittle about Evan Sayet's new book below.  This is a sleeper and I highly recommend you start off 2013 with this as your first read.  http://www.evansayet.com

"Evan Sayet's THE KINDERGARDEN OF EDEN is not just a great explanation of liberal attitudes. It has absolute predictive power. It is the Grand Unified Theory of progressive policies and it has forever changed and clarified the way I look at the world."

Evan Sayet is brilliant in tying the following together.  He calls them the Unified Field Theory of Modern Liberals.  Evan is a writer and a comedian, so this is an easy read, about 130 pages or so.  I've read it 4 times if that says anything:

THE LAWS OF MODERN
LIBERALISM
1. Indiscriminateness – the total rejection of the
intellectual process – is an absolute moral
imperative.
2. Indiscriminateness of thought does not lead to
indiscriminateness of policies. It leads to siding
only and always with the lesser over the better,
the wrong over the right, and the evil over the
good.
3. Modern Liberal policies occur in tandem. Each
effort on behalf of the lesser is met with an
equal and opposite campaign against the better.
4. The Modern Liberal will ascribe to the better
the negative qualities associated with the lesser
while concurrently ascribing to the lesser the
positive qualities found in the better.

Thanks,  Matt  for calling this book to our attention. It would be helpful if you would offer a short book review.

Without a doubt read Evan Sayet's "The Kindergarten of Eden", http://evansayet.com/.  You want to know why liberals think the way they do?  Evan explains it all.  You'll sleep better at night after spending this $4.99.

MY GRANDCHILDREN’S AMERICA - Don Jans..............

Will it still be the land of the free and the home of the brave?  A question every American should ask.  In an interview in Oct of 2008, then Senator Joe Biden was asked if Obama was a Marxist.  Biden refused to answer!  Why?  The author uses a straight forward, yet interesting approach to explain what Marx actually taught.  Marx talked about civil disobedience, national debt, taxes, credit regulation and many other current topics.  Is the fundamental transformation Marx called for the fundamental transformation promised by then Senator Obama in November of 2008?  The author is not concerned about being politically correct. Get this No Spin answer today by ordering your book NOW!  You can order this book today at www.mygrandchildrensamerica.com.  It will also be available on Amazon in early June.

Liberal Facism - Jonah Goldberg

Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World by Andrew Breitbart. Andrew's exciting new book, scheduled for wide release on Tea Party Tax Day/April 15, chronicles his privileged Westside childhood -->iconoclastic persona as a 1980s nerd on the fringe of cool --->bacchanalian college years at Tulane (lost in a relativistic liberal fog) -->epiphany of conservatism, and groundbreaking career as the penultimate Merry Prankster of the Internet. It is a rollicking read. Evocatively drawn scenes depict Andrew's struggles in mastering the earliest internet technology, the warped life and death of his Socialist mentor, Arianna Huffington's ambitious business model, and the crucial junctures of luck and skill that spawned the ACORN expose and the Tea Party explosion. In between, Andrew chronicles the transatlantic journey of the dirigible that was the Frankfurt School, peopled by the world's sourest malcontents, landing, as it did, on the roof of Columbia University (and later on the streets of Santa Monica). An educational book - but you won't notice that amid all of the irreverent fun and frank language.

The Roots of Obama’s Rage by Dinesh D’Souza . Here is a theory that explains and justifies the enigma that is our president. – answers to the inexplicable, reasons for the political, policy, and procedural paradoxes of his administration. You’ll be surprised to learn that he is not intelligent. With cold analytical conviction and without any invidious intent D’Souza describes a certifiable lunatic.

The Roads to Modernity by Gertrude Himmelfarb is a short but scholarly book about the philosophical foundations and influential thought current at the time of the Founding. Why freedom of speach and religion? Who were the Enlightenment thinkers and how did it differ in France, America,Scotland and England? Burke, Smith, Hume, Russeau, Gibbon - I won't name them all - subtle analysis and fascinating quotes from the thought of the great geniuses who guided the way to our modern life. It's a page turner - finished in 3 days - now on to some of the original sources. I think I'll start with Smith.

THAT'S NO ANGRY MOB, THAT'S MY MOM: Team Obama's Assault on Tea-Party, Talk-Radio Americans
BY Michael Graham
Have you hoisted a sign at a tea party protest? Asked your congressman a tough question at a townhall meeting? Liked what you heard on talk radio? If so, then welcome to the angry Mob.
Aided by their allies in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, the Obama administration is out to silence you. As long as you support Team Obama, you’re okay. But if you disagree, they accuse you of being a violent, unhinged, hate-filled racist. Typical Americans, denounced by their own government, have been left on their own. Until now.

VINDICATING LINCOLN by Thomas L. Krannawitter
In this reasoned argument against the prevailing orthodoxies of the right, left, and center, Krannawitter takes on all of Lincoln’s detractors and reasserts his contemporary relevance. A heady mix of narrative history and political insights, Vindicating Lincoln reveals a man whose political and moral example sets him apart as the greatest President of the United States of America.

THE FORGOTTEN MAN by Amity Schlaes: In 1960, 1980, and 2000 respectively, JFK, Reagan and Bush cut taxes and produced economic growth, lower unemployment and increased Treasury receipts. In 1922, Pres Coolidge and his Treasury secretary, Andrew Mellon, likewise cut taxes and the result was the Roaring Twenties...a similar period of strong economic growth.

RED HOT LIES, How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud, and Deception to Keep You Misinformed by Christopher C. Horner: LIARS; Al Gore. The United Nations. The New York Times. The global warming lobby, relentless in its push for bigger government, more spending, and more regulation, will use any means necessary to scare you out of your wits-with threats of rising oceans, deadly droughts, and unspeakable future consequences of "climate change." In Red Hot Lies, author Christopher Horner-himself the target of Greenpeace dirty tricks and alarmist smears-exposes the dark underbelly of the enviromental movement.
