Happy New Year!

The party is over. The revelry has ended.

Another year has come and gone. The new one is full of promise.

Individually we all start with a blank slate and hopes of doing things better than we have done them in the past.

We resolve to lead healthier, more productive and more fulfilling lives – to live, and live more abundantly.

Those of us who live in the United States are fortunate to have such hope. There are many people in the world – most, in fact – who have no hope. They live in totalitarian or authoritarian countries where governments have no respect for individual liberties.

We do not want to join them.

However, history shows us that we are either moving in the direction of more freedom or in the direction of tyranny. There is no such thing as standing still.

That’s why I wrote “Taking America Back.” This is the manual for reclaiming real freedom in our country. This is the guidebook for re-establishing self-government. This is the instruction book for rejecting creeping totalitarianism. This is the map book for charting a new course to liberty.

And what better time to chart that course for freeing yourself and your country than the brand new year?

Great things happen when we have high expectations. I have high expectations that this book could re-ignite the torch of freedom in this country. I am upbeat and positive – even though I see our nation beset with grave institutional and seemingly insurmountable problems.

The secret, I believe, to achieving victory is to go on offense.

For too long, freedom-minded Americans have been playing defense only. They react to problems. They react to initiatives from the enemy on dozens of fronts.

They content themselves to beating back an encroachment on their freedom – even while a dozen others succeed.

“Taking America Back” is a blueprint for taking the war to the other side. It’s a battle plan for waging an offensive struggle against the forces of darkness. It’s an instruction manual for reclaiming our heritage of liberty. It’s a guidebook to taking back territory already ceded to the bad guys.

In “Taking America Back,” I lay out a 12-step program for winning this new revolution. I explain concepts few other authors have ever tackled for the mass audience:



  • What is self-government? What does it mean? Why is it essential to being a free people?


  • What is defense? Hint: It has nothing to do with the ability to project military power around the world.


  • What are the practical first steps that anyone can and should take to get their country back?


This is a radical book. This is not for the faint of heart. This is not a book for armchair revolutionaries. This is not for compromisers. This is a book intended to propel you into action.

So, if you are content with the direction of our country, avoid this book at all costs. If you think America is getting freer all the time, you probably won’t understand the principles of this book. If you believe your children’s world is saner, more secure and happier than your world, just turn on the television and forget you ever heard of “Taking America Back.”

For the rest of you, get your order in right now. Get your copy. Read it. Read it again. It won’t take more than a few hours. Lend it to others. Let me know what you think.

Let’s pray 2004 is the beginning of that movement.
