Overview


Do you enjoy weekends? Vacation? Overtime? Are you happy that there’s a safety net if you get laid off? Do you appreciate that there’s no arsenic in your food? And what about the fact that you’re protected from unjust imprisonment—do you like that? If your answer to these questions is an overwhelming yes, you can thank liberals. Since the founding of America, we have battled about the best way to move forward. In Thank the Liberals, political commentator and Fox News radio host Alan Colmes explains how those who fight for liberal ideals have consistently made our lives better. He tells us the real story about many of the programs and benefits we take for granted. With his trademark humor and wit, Colmes walks us through the liberal values on which our nation was established, showing how all Americans are actually liberal. Then he takes us through key pieces of legislation, constitutional amendments, Supreme Court decisions, and actions of grassroots organizations and individuals that have liberalized us even more, providing the equality and opportunity that have made America stand out as a beacon of freedom and democracy for the rest of the world. But the fight continues as the divide between conservatives and progressives increasingly widens. While “regressives,” as Colmes calls them, would have us revert to bygone eras—revoking hard-won rights—liberals oppose this backward slide. From the relationship between church and state, to climate change, health care, immigration, caring for the poor, and making peace, not war, Colmes shows how liberals are leading the way. Thank the Liberals will open your eyes to some of our nation’s current battles and set the story straight concerning who truly has fought—and continues to fight—for the freedom and justice that are essential to the American way of life.

    My exposure to Alan Colmes was always as an off-set to Sean Hann

    My exposure to Alan Colmes was always as an off-set to Sean Hannity and more recently to Monica Crowley in some segments of The O'Reilley Factor. I decided to give this book and was pleasantly surprised. Alan is an extremely talented writer who presents cogent arguments to present his points. He takes the literal definition of the word "liberal" and then goes to show that just about every political idea ever put forth is based on "liberal" thinking. He cites the Constitution a lot and talks about how the framers were all "liberal" in their thinking and that just about everything that today's "conservatives" expound are in fact, liberal ideas.

    The book is more a "thesis" than it is actual book and the reader gets the gist of it after the first couple of chapters. That is the only thing that prevented me from giving it a full five stars.

    Surprise.

    A conservative hating author has written a book that panders to conservative hating liberals. Yawn.

    No doubt about his enthusiasm, but Alan has one problem: his Log

    No doubt about his enthusiasm, but Alan has one problem: his Logic. He freely assigns the moniker "liberal" to any one who was born before him, with no regards to explanations and/or concluding facts. It is like saying that a dad is a wonderful provider because he maximized his credit to buy a house, without making plans to avoid bankruptcy a year later! Yeah! Liberal ideas! Everybody has a dime-a-dozen. Buy, do they guarantee they will work? Will they be there to prevent disaster if they don't? Is it the same to be morally liberal, and to be fiscally liberal? Or socially liberal, and patriotically liberal? Uplifting book for the unthinking mass, but not convincing for the thinking and literate ones. My opinion!
