Overview

In Thank the Liberals, political commentator and Fox News radio host Alan Colmes explains how people who fight for liberal ideals help our country move forward. With his trademark humor and wit, Colmes walks readers through the founding of our nation and shows how America was based on a liberal idea. Our very founders were progressives, and it's progressives who have led America to be the country it is today. Through legislation, constitutional amendments, Supreme Court decisions, and the actions of grassroots Americans, we see that it is liberal efforts that are responsible for programs intrinsic to our American DNA-programs like Social Security, Medicare, assistance for the needy, and the government safety nets that have saved us during the recent economic downturn.

Colmes's goal is to show not only where we are today, but also where we as a nation are going and how it is liberals who will get us there. The divide between conservative and progressive aims has gotten ever more stark, and it seems that many conservatives are trying to take us backward, revoking or rolling back hard-won rights and impeding progress, which at best keeps us stranded in the status quo. This continual push to the right is something liberals must fight, and fight they do. On everything from preserving the separation of church and state, to climate change, regulating immigration, caring for the poor, and making peace, not war, Colmes shows how liberals are leading the way.

Thank the Liberals will open readers' eyes to some of the battles that will help define our nation as we move forward. Colmes boldly shows that as America progresses, it will become more liberal-just as it has done throughout history-and that this will enable us to continue to stand out as a beacon of freedom and democracy for the rest of the world.

    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!
