The End of America

I need your help... My younger brother, just 39, finally has turned to "politics". During Christmas vacation he asked me, "what are the top 10 books you would recommend for someone like me?"
(High school grad, never into politics, family man, loves sports, hard worker). I also realized he probably has never read 10 books since graduating from high school.... and I also realized the rare opportunity he had given me, so... I recommended to him this book, THE END OF AMERICA by Naomi Wolf (only 150 pages, & I feel it should be required reading for every Ron Paul Patriot out there)...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1933392797/ref=sib_dp_pt/105...

So, please give me your list of 9 books for a new Ron Paul Patriot and its Amazon link.

Thanks,

Treg

Atlas Shrugged

While its true that Ron Paul is the Atlas that will not Shrug... this is a phenominal book, thick, but life changing.

that woke me up is

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
― Albert Camus

must reads

1:Gulag Archipelago is a must!!!! One of the most important books of all time I think. Have to read ALL THREE BOOKS, not the abridged version.. Amazon has the complete set but you have to hunt for it.

2: Brave New World Revisited by A. Huxley ( the people will lay their freedom at the feet of their new masters and say "FEED US!!" )

3: The Monster From Jekyl Island ( about the fed ).

4: Whatever Happened to Penny Candy/Justice etc....great series, easy to read too.
I don't mean to speak ill of the departed, but a few of my friends and I found Anthony Russo ( Freedom to Fascism ) EXTREMELY annoying. He comes off like Tony Soprano complaining about his taxes. There are other documentaries about the IRS, Fed etc that seem a bit more scholarly. Just my 2 cents. Keep up the fight!! G

It's the Creature From Jekyll Island, not the monster

Rule By Secrecy

by Jim Marrs

New Books For New Patriots

Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England;
(outlines the transcendent standards of the Common Law rooted in Divine Revelation - a direct refutation of the classical liberalism of Enlightenment Rationalists that form part of the foundation of modern liberalism.);
By RJ Rushdooney:
Politics of Guilt and Pity (Psychodynamics of Marxist ideology);
Institutes of Biblical Law (how the Bible influenced early legal thinkers);
AJ Languith The Patriots (History/ biography of American Revolution)
AA Hodge Outlines of Theology (especially important to understand how the theology of materialism and Deism effect other areas of life)
NT Wright: The Resurrection of the Son of God (for understanding how early Christians turned the world upside down with a very simple message - Jesus of Nazareth is Lord, and Caesar is NOT - this is the basis of Anglo-American common law, understand this and use it well, and you will restore freedom)

Good read, open your mind and question everything.

that was a great read

loved the name section!

also, thomas friedman...the world is flat.....good one too.

I have two books to

I have two books to recommend.

They don't seem very "revolutionary" on the surface, but I think they may be the most important books you could read right now. Possibly more important than reading Dr. Paul's new book. Their message really is that important right now.

I'm sure you can find them both collecting dust at your local library.

They are both short and can be consumed in under an hour each

They are both by a guy named Richard Bach.

Read:

Jonathan Livingston Seagull

and

Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Really, I'm giving you all a book list, read it.

Love

Fun, uplifting reads

The 'reluctant messiah' moniker is one I think of often when I consider Dr. Paul's public service.

Animal Farm and 1984

Animal Farm and 1984 -Orwell
Breakfast of Champions-Vonagat
Obviously anything by Ron Paul

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."- JFK

Currently Reading...

I'm currently reading:

Armed Madhouse, by Greg Palast
The Shock Doctrine, by Naomi Klein
The End of America, by Naomi Wolf
Confessions of an Economic Hitman, by John Perkins

Also in my library are:

Blowback
Blackwater
The Creature from Jekyll Island (which I cannot recommend enough)
Shadows of Power (another excellent book)

Documentaries worth noting:

Iraq for Sale
Beyond Treason
Life and Debt
Freedom to Fascism
Monopoly Men
Conspiracy of Silence

That ought to wake anybody up from their sleep!

Killing hope

It is not an easy read but if he wants to know about our foreign policy, this is a good one. I have read most of it and it is eye opening how much we have thrown our weight around the world for many years. Killing Hope- William blum

By arming the mujahideen, we created the taliban and financed the very people we are now waging a "war" against. the movie glosses over much of the meat of this true story. it also provides an up close view into the congress or better known as the ultimate "boy's" club.
