Liberty's Lifeline

Though I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, I guess Liberty’s Lifeline: Engaging the Grassroots Movement to Stop the Erosion of American Freedoms is one of those books that readers will either love or hate, according to their political orientation and whether or not they think Obama is doing a terrific job—well, there must be someone, somewhere, who still believes he is the best for the job, but if this is your case, then you might not want to read any further than this introduction…

A lifelong resident of a blue state such as New York, Bill O’Connell, the Author of this book, is also a very influential blogger and the owner of Liberty’s Lifeline, a great blog I recently discovered, and that’s how I heard about the book and why I’m posting this. The book is already available for Kindle at amazon.com, while the hardcover version is coming out in April. The title is highly descriptive of the contents of this book, but to get a clearer idea of what it is all about, here is what will appear on the jacket back cover (emailed to me by the Author. Thanks, Bill!) :

In a country of over 300 million people, how can you make your voice heard? Most US citizens consider themselves powerless when it comes to making a difference in political issues, but in this book, Bill O’Connell describes how you can stop sitting on the sidelines and step into the arena.
From the housing crisis to health care, from taxes to terrorism, O’Connell offers his plan for restoring America back to the country our founding fathers fought so hard to create. O’Connell challenges readers with tough questions, building his case with facts and escaping the trap of name-calling. He also offers concrete steps that you can take to effect real change in Washington. Now is the time for Americans to work together to take back a government that is quickly becoming ‘of, by, and for the bureaucrats.’
