Years ago the professor in my political ideologies class laid out a view of the political spectrum that I've never forgotten. It does not, he said, resemble a line with a far left, a far right and a center. Instead, it is a nearly closed circle where the extremes of the spectrum are turning back towards each other. The accuracy of that analysis has struck me several times over the years, especially this year.

For example, among the books that make up the Tea Party canon is Saul Alinsky's Rules

I have a copy of this that's free to a good home. I expected a provocative and entertaining read and instead received a healthy dose of boring and predictable. Plus, Rall fails miserably at providing solutions or instructions on how to carry out the overthrow for which he is calling, frequently stating "I don't have a solution" or "I don't know what exactly to recommend" or "It's up to you (the reader) to figure out." His main point seems to just be "do something" - and this banal point is someh ...more
Rall doesn't mince words and explains exactly what he thinks is needed to change things in this country. I don't agree with everything he wrote, but it's an important book nonetheless.

excellent call to action from ted rall. he gave a reading in town right when i was in the middle of the book and was quite good -- go hear him if you can. i gave the book to my brother when i finished it, and he's going to pass it on to someone else when he's done. i suggest everyone do the same (just be careful who you give it to -- not for tea partiers, that's for sure!).
