Some light summer reading!

Now I know that when sitting on the beach nothing beats a good thriller or a spicy romance. Unfortunately, we are at a major crisis point in world history and if you spend your summer reading escapist novels the changes that are coming will catch you completely by surprise. The world is teetering between spiraling into a permanent decline and launching into a new era of grace and prosperity. Every vote you cast, every letter you write, will have a dramatic impact on your children and grandchildren. Now more than ever it is important to get the facts and stay focused on them.

The books listed below have had a powerful impact on my worldview. The closest comparison I can make would be when I began reading the Bible at age eleven. For me, the past two years have been just as life-changing as early adolescence was and these books are the reason.

More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws, Third Edition (Studies in Law and Economics)

A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus's Great Discovery to the War on Terror

Plain, Honest Men: The Making of the American Constitution

America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It

Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto

The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre!

In the end, some of you will make different choices than I do. This is a good thing. It does not matter which side of the debate you are on. The single most important thing for everyone, this year more than any other, is to get the facts, and then based on the facts, pick a side and fight for it with all you're worth.

This is the year that everything changes. Don't be caught by surprise. Get the facts and get involved.

Update: May 23, 2010

Finally! I was beginning to believe the mainstream media had forgotten they were private enterprises dedicated to profit. At least one person has finally figured out that this year is the year we as a people decide if we want a free market capitalist economy or a centrally managed socialist economy.
