    Good stuff

    After listening to Big Eddie's call-in talk show, I decided to get this book, and it was worth every penny I spent. Ed describes how conservatives in office don't help working class Americans. I recommend this book to everyone with no regard to their political affiliation.

    Getting it Straight

    Big Ed is not your ordinary liberal. He uses facts and personal stories to explain why America is on the wrong path. I really enjoyed reading about his personal transformation from a conservative ¿rightie ¿, as he calls his former persona, into a compassionate ¿gun toting, meat eating liberal¿. He gives rare insight into where the country is headed unless blue collar America begins to stand up for their rights. His book is based upon the four pillars of our society: defending America, a sound economy, feeding the nation, and educating America. He uses facts and sound political and economic theories, not rhetoric and bullet points, to describe the problems of America. He goes on to show how those problems are getting progressively worse under our current administration. And finally offers solutions to those problems that make sense. It doesn¿t matter if you are just beginning to awaken to the reality of where America seems to be heading, or a long time liberal,if you care about where America is going this is a good place to start, and great book to read.
