Now that everyone’s gearing up to read Scott McClellan’s new book, which I plan to read with a few grains of salt, I thought it may be a good time to suggest a summer reading list for conservatives. I would also like to hear some suggested reading from my friends at Townhall. Rather than waste time with preliminaries, here’s an abbreviated list of my “must reads” for Summer 2008:
Red Sky in the Morning by Bill Bright
One should know why and how this nation was created.
How Now Shall We Live by Chuck Colson
It’s crucial to know what you believe and why so you can fight for that worldview.
Politics of Prudence by Russell Kirk
How it all comes together.
Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
No, I am not joining Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi on the couch. As an exterminator in the 1970s, this book lit a fire under me…for all the wrong reasons, of course. It’s always good to know the weapons your political enemies are using, and this is chief in their arsenal.
The Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater
Sounds clich?d, I know, but I know many conservatives who never cracked this book. It’s hard to stand up for conservatism if you don’t know what conservatism really stands for.
For everyone who has been calling me a conspiracy theorist over the last two years, read this and tell me I’m wrong…
David Horowitz is one of my favorite people, and he put more than a million dollars of research into tracking the network Democrat operatives have created. Check out the latest developments here: www.discoverthenetwork.org.
No Retreat, No Surrender: One American’s Fight by Stephen Mansfield, as told by me
Shameless self promotion, but it’s also one of the few ways I can debunk the liberal lies about me.
