Overview

One hundred and two years ago Teddy Roosevelt split the Republican Party to advance his progressive agenda. Progressivism, or Big Government Republicanism, became the philosophy of the Republican Party's establishment elite. Fifty years ago conservatives began a battle for control of the party. Now is the time for conservatives to finish the job and take back the Republican Party.

All national polls show that the American people self-identify as conservatives by a margin of 2 to 1 or more. Despite the scandals surrounding the White House, the outrageous failure of ObamaCare, and the lack of leadership from Congress, the Republican Party has failed to win key elections because it has failed to deliver on its promises to roll back the tide of Big Government.

In Takeover, prominent Republican strategist and fundraiser Richard Viguerie outlines the way to establish limited government constitutional conservatism as the governing philosophy of the Republican Party and sanity back to Congress and the White House. Viguerie details the storied history of the battle for the soul of Republican Party and offers practical advice and outlines the steps necessary for conservatives to win the civil war in the GOP and govern America by 2017.

Meet the Author

Richard A. Viguerie, called the conservatives' Voice of America, transformed American politics in the 1960s and '70s. Through his pioneering use of direct mail Viguerie broke the left's monopoly on the country's microphones, gave the conservatives a voice through the new and alternative media of direct mail, broke the power of large donors by empowering millions of small donors to back the candidates and causes of their choice. His pioneering techniques helped elect Ronald Reagan as the first conservative president of the modern era. Often called the Funding Father of the conservative movement, Viguerie's advertising firm has mailed more than 3 billion letters and raised over $7 billion over the past 50 years. He is the chairman of ConservativeHQ.com and author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause.

Jenny Beth Martin is the president and cofounder of Tea Party Patriots. Born in Georgia in 1970, she lives in the northern suburbs of Atlanta with her husband, Lee Martin, and her son and daughter twins.

    I couldn't put this book down. It's fascinating (and I'm not a Republican). What I liked best about the book was the fact that it not only talked about how the Republican Party can move forward and win elections, but what's BEHIND all the current strife. No other book out there discusses the "inside baseball" info that started the so-called "GOP Civil War." I'm a political history buff. The author not only traced the fight all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt and its early roots -- this guy LIVED the modern rebirth of conservatives-versus-moderate-Republicans battle. He tells it like it is and NAMES NAMES. Nobody else is covering this GOP 'war' with the kind of detail, historical background, and Tea Party references. If you want to understand why today's Republican Party is failing and how they'll need to change to succeed again, this book is for you.
