Tea Party Culture War by Stephen Johnson

America stands at a crossroads: culturally, economically, and politically. Enter The Tea Party Movement, whose focus is primarily fiscal conservatism, government accountability, and reduced taxation.

Currently, America suffers from a clash of worldviews, but the issue is much deeper than politics; it is ultimately a spiritual battle between good and evil. For the sake of generations to come, we need to win this war. We need to take action to defend our beliefs. We need to take the right road.

My review:

I wasn't sure what to expect when I asked for this book to review. I consider myself a member of the Tea Party, and am a conservative voter, so I was hoping it was a positive portrayal of the Tea Party, and it is. The book is a lot more than that though.

The author crams a lot of information into this book. He goes back and talks about Karl Marx and his ideology and how they have tried to bring that into the US over the years, and other similar ideas, but they have never gotten very far because of the Christianized ideology of America.

Everyone should read this book. The author does a great job of showing what is at stake here in America, and how we need to elect not Democrats or Republicans, but true conservatives.

I enjoyed reading the book and I indeed learned a lot about both liberal and conservative ideas and agendas, and am more convinced than ever that we need real change in America.
