To encourage more dialogue, I'm offering free, for a limited time, my newest Kindle eBook, "You’re a Republican! The Political Conversation Your Mother Told You Never to Have." No boring position papers here! Just pull up a chair and listen in to some straight talk over dinner about political principles and issues that make a difference for how Americans vote. From the opening toast, you'll explore your own views as two couples from different parties and backgrounds explore a political conversation their mother never wanted them to have. There is no name calling, just one couple trying to explain to another why they vote Republican.

There's an introduction on how to have a civil political conversation and a self-test to identify where you stand on the issues and values that separate Republicans and Democrats. This election is too important not to make an informed vote. Risk truly understanding what both parties stand for, because the difference has never been clearer.

As a gift to you, my readers, you can access a free Kindle App download of "You're a Republican!" on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 25-26.Whether you read the book or not, please take the challenge of initiating a political conversation with someone across the political divide. Seek first to understand and be understood, and some might just come to agree with you.
