"Quoting Liberally: Why Lefties Are America's Best Hope" is William Martin's fourth book of liberal quotations. One of its main purposes is to help energize liberals in support of President Obama's reelection. Martin agrees with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd's assessment that Obama is "a rational man running a most irrational nation, a high-minded man in a low-minded age." Martin thinks we are fortunate to have a president who leans left in a country that increasingly leans right. He appreciates how he ended the Iraq War, extended heath care to millions of Americans, and kept us out of another Great Depression.
There are many critical topics referenced in Quoting Liberally. One of them deserves special notice. We desperately need to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In the Citizens United decision, five GOP members of the Supreme Court disregarded mountains of legal precedent and empowered millionaires and billionaires to spend unlimited amounts of money to buy any and all elections. Campaign finance, already legalized bribery, has gone from obscene to corrupt. Without a constitutional amendment to reverse this power grab, corporations will completely control the political process. Campaign finance reform is now the issue upon which all others depend.
Because big corporations now have the ability to drown out competing perspectives, enabling liberal voices to be heard has never been more important. Quoting Liberally will help address this need. It will be a resource for bloggers, speechwriters, activists, and everyday patriots who care about the future of their country. The book's special section on "Stupid Republican Quotes" will remind us of the nuttiness and cruelty of conservative discourse, while the liberal quotes will show us why lefties are America's best hope.
