In keeping with the hard-hitting tenor of his nationally syndicated radio show, Jerry Doyle has authored a no-nonsense call-to-action book, "Have You Seen My Country Lately? America's Wake-Up Call."
Resonating themes that are at the heart of the tea-party movement, Doyle rails against what he calls "economic fascism," as typified by President Obama's takeover of General Motors by imposing "total government control of one of the biggest auto companies in the world" and arranging "an enormous payoff" to one of Obama's biggest campaign supporters, the United Auto Workers union.
With an insightful review of the 1960s that ranges from LSD-enthusiast Timothy Leary to Black Panther criminals, including Eldridge Cleaver and George Jackson, Doyle makes it clear Obama is "a disciple and practitioner of 1960s radicalism."
Noting Obama's long association with SDS Weatherman bomber Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the black liberation theology pastor who was Obama's spiritual adviser for 20 years, Doyle declares, "Obama is not the beginning of something new: he's the culmination of something old and stale: the extremist collectivism and hippie naïveté of the 1960s."
The economic danger to the American middle class is clear, especially when a socialist determination to expand social-welfare programs to an unprecedented scale motivates White House economic policy: "Under President Obama's taxation scheme, 60 percent of voters will pay virtually no income taxes."
Doyle argues convincingly that the Democratic Party under President Obama's leadership can buy a new generation of government-dependent voters who have been promised "a new pony" in a world where "politicians are eager to tell voters – ethnic minorities in particular – that they deserve other people's hard-earned cash because of their victimhood status."
In calling for voting to be limited to the dwindling minority that actually still pays taxes, Doyle correctly points out: "The logical end-point of this process of non-producers voting is the end of capitalism: we vote ourselves directly into a government-controlled economy where all exercise of entrepreneurial vision is penalized."
Otherwise, we end up with the logic of programs like the Freddie Mac "Affordable Gold" that actually allowed borrowers to claim welfare payments and food stamps as a source of income when applying for government-sponsored mortgages.
Doyle points out a leftist government driven by Obama's 1960s radical anti-American, anti-capitalist ideology has a willing accomplice to conceal its redistributionist theft: the public education system.
This is accomplished "by teaching children that they were entitled to other people's money, that they had no responsibility for earning or working, that by simply being fortunate enough to be born in America they were guaranteed certain magical benefits," Doyle writes.
Another willing accomplice is the mainstream media that keep the public preoccupied with Perez Hilton and "runaway bride," so as not to focus on "some other, minor items in the news," such as President Obama "risking our national security by releasing CIA memos about our interrogation methods" or Janet Napolitano, homeland security secretary, "defending a report labeling anyone who didn't like Big Government a 'right-wing extremist' capable of terrorism."
Calling Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann of MSNBC the "three amigos of the Obama love fest," Doyle noted that Obama finessed his lack of political experience into winning the presidency in 2008 by becoming a celebrity in his own right, garnering cover shoots on national magazines such as GQ and Rolling Stone, while dancing on television with Ellen DeGeneres and courting the endorsement of Oprah Winfrey.
For Doyle, this was a lesson he learned decades ago when he decided to take a sabbatical from his highly successful television and movie-acting career to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in California as a conservative.
"I quickly went from a guy who had starred for five seasons in an Emmy-winning series, Showtime and TNT movies, film work, countless voiceover campaigns, animation voice-overs, featured in numerous national and international magazines and recently on the cover of TV Guide, to a guy who was basically shut out of getting any new work."
Doyle learned the hard way that Hollywood is a leftist town where people feel completely comfortable handing out Obama T-shirts at work and conservatives are considered incapable of being empathetic artists.
Fortunately, Doyle found his highest and best talent was in conservative talk radio where after five years, his national radio show, syndicated by Talk Radio Network, is now the seventh-biggest in the country, with 230 affiliates and over 4 million listeners per week.
In a political season where top Democrats like Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Sen. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota are exiting politics, Doyle's book, "Have You Seen My Country Lately?" is a must read, not just for his brilliant analysis of Obama's 1960s-style radical socialism, but for the need to understand why the tea-party movement is shaping up to be a historic effort to "drain the political swamp" of Washington, D.C., in the upcoming mid-term elections this year.
The book, however, is not an open endorsement of the Republican Party in 2010.
The 2010 mid-term elections, as Doyle correctly points out, are shaping up to be a bloodbath of historical proportions, not only for all Democrats, but for all incumbents, including Republicans who have lost their way pursing "diversity" in a "Big Tent Party."
Republican Party incumbents in the House and Senate who mistakenly identified the presidency of George W. Bush or the 2008 presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain with the type of anti-tax, anti-deficit, anti-globalism, anti-Big Government sentiments at the heart of the tea-party movement ignore at their own risk Doyle's "Have You Seen My Country Lately?"
