“It’s about time that someone on our side, someone truly on our side who shares our convictions, presented us with a viable plan that has a real chance of making a difference in changing America’s political class for the better. Steve Deace has done just that, with this provocative, smart, bold, innovative, and powerful book.”
To put it bluntly, for too long we have lacked a plan.
Venting on social media isn’t a plan. Calling a talk radio show like mine isn’t a plan. Marches are not a plan. Blogging isn’t a plan.
To be certain, all of those things are worthwhile. I’ve invested my time doing all of them as well. But when the marches and talk radio shows are over, when the blogs have been read, and the social media has been shared, what happens next? Ask a patriot what he believes, and you’ll get an answer filled with courage of conviction. But ask a patriot what to do with his beliefs and you’ll often get back blank stares and shrugged shoulders.
The Left has gained a lot of ground in the culture the past few years not because its ideas are superior. If they were, they wouldn’t need to deploy tactics that shut down debates they know they cannot win. Rather, the Left has gained a considerable foothold in our culture because it has a plan. And it has followed that plan and rarely, if ever, deviated from it for decades. The Left does not consider losing slower to be “pragmatic” as our failed leaders wrongly do, but the Left understands losing any ground is just plain old losing. They’ve taken much ground as a result.
It will take a carefully coordinated and disciplined plan to take that ground back. Just praying won’t do the trick. Even Nehemiah constructed a plan to rebuild his civilization in addition to his prayer. Theoretical debate won’t take that ground back, although it can lay the foundation for making it possible. Still, in any war – and make no mistake, this is a war – you need a plan. A practical plan that wages war in a way that advances the principles you’re fighting for.
Now we have one.
This is a plan that works for every faction of the pro-liberty movement of patriots who are concerned these United States of America are facing their first existential threat on our own shores since the Red Coats were driven off. This is why my new book, Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again, may have the most diverse and impressive array of endorsements that any political book will receive this year:
