"Tea Party Culture War" by Stephen Johnson, B.S., J.D.

Have you ever really read about the Tea Party - its foundation and the reasons for its stand on various issues; or have you just gone with the flow? If you want some real information about why this movement is important, this book is for you. Stephen Johnson has taken a great deal of time in study, and presents clearly the options we each have today. Is America at a pivotal crossroads in time? It is, and it is incumbent on each individual to study the issues and then stand on their belief. No matter what side you are on, be ready to stand behind what you say.

The Tea Party was founded to combat what was seen as multiple attacks on our culture, our Constitution, on the very fiber of our country. In this book, Dr. Johnson takes the time to explain the reasons behind the Tea Party members stands on issues like economics, politics, and the Constitution. While this political season is filled with divisive political rhetoric, Dr. Johnson helps the reader understand what can be done to turn our country around and back to our foundation. If you are wondering what all the fuss is about, pick up this book and find out!

This is a well researched and well written book. Everyone should know what they believe and why, what they stand for and why. I recommend this book to everyone who has an opinion of the Tea Party and its beliefs, who has not made that opinion through study. You can't base your opinions on someone else's and truly be part of the debate. I received my free review copy from the Litfuse Publicity Group for an honest review.

More about the book:

America stands at a crossroads: culturally, economically, and politically. Enter The Tea Party Movement, whose focus is primarily fiscal conservatism, government accountability, and reduced taxation.

Currently, America suffers from a clash of worldviews, but the issue is much deeper than politics; it is ultimately a spiritual battle between good and evil. For the sake of generations to come, we need to win this war. We need to take action to defend our beliefs. We need to take the right road.
