Overview

A leading voice of the Tea Party movement -- FreedomWorks chairman Dick Armey ("the unofficial leader of the anti-Washington Tea Party movement." [Washington Post]) -- describes the historical roots, ideas, and tactics that animate the most important grassroots movement in America today. "Dick Armey�s FreedomWorks organization has become front and center in the Tea Party movement" (New York Times). Armey sees an unprecedented citizen uprising standing poised to take America back from big spenders, self-righteous income redistributors, and an arrogant political establishment. Grassroots citizens across the nation first became outraged by the big government "conservatism" of the Bush years, with its earmarks, deficit spending and bailouts for Wall Street. Downright frightened by the big-government audacities of Obama, they have taken to the streets en mass against a hostile takeover of our healthcare system, costly special-interest giveaways and a shocking expansion in the size of, and control by, the federal government.

In Give Us Liberty, the former House Majority Leader and FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe define what the Tea Party is fighting for and how all Americans can join the cause. This activist manifesto contains a battle-tested, step-by-step guide to organizing and having a real impact. Based on the successful experiences of local Tea Party movement leaders, it includes tips on building local grassroots communities, driving media coverage, social networking online, effective signs and messaging, street protests, and more.
