I recently read Phil Valentine's The Conservative's Handbook: Defining the Right Position on Issues from A to Z. It is easy to read, making great political points with humor. You'll love tidbits he shares such as his reference to environmental extremists as "dirt people" and his common sense approach to immigration. Phil offers personal experiences and snapshots from his talk radio program that was instrumental in keeping the state income tax from passing in the Tennessee Legislature.
I recommend The Conservative's Handbook as a priority read for those who are in the arena fighting for our conservative principles. He does remind you...it is a fight.
The Conservative's Handbook provides a conservative viewpoint on a wide range of ideas. Among them are guns, global warming, drugs, partial birth abortion, education, political correctness, entrepreneurs, and the wisdom of Ronald Reagan. In doing so, it covers the hot issues of today as well as perennial topics of interest. The knowledge he imparts is more than just information. It's ammunition for conservatives when they are caught up in discussions with friends and arguments with those on the Left.
