Overview

Crazy Right Wing Republicans and How They Got That Way and Cliffs I - How and Why America's Billionaires and the Republican/Libertarian/Tea Party Are Pusing Us Over by Curtis A. Moore

Today's Republicans have rejected the policies of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and millions of others to instead embrace the very rich-and their values. The GOP's moderate to liberal wing, which freed slaves and preserved the nation, is dead. It has been replaced by billionaires, their corporations and Crazy Right Wing Republicans. This book provides a frightening description of the ceaseless quest for profits that has pushed ordinary citizens into a freefall, reaping the whirlwind sown by the policies of billionaires. America has been turned into a profit stream and a safe haven for the wealthy, who now claim the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, 31 governorships, 29 state legislatures (holding both chambers, the most since the 1920s), 27 attorneys general, and when it suits them, the U.S. Supreme Court. Through it, they have opened the floodgates to unlimited "independent" campaign spending to secure their chokehold on a once great nation. The 2016 elections may prove to be America's last chance to save itself.

About the Author

Curtis A. Moore was once Republican counsel to a powerful U.S. Senate Committee. Before that, he co-managed the re-election campaign of a father of Ronald Reagan's "trickle down" economics, Sen. William V. Roth, Jr. of Delaware, and was once on the payroll of the Republican National Committee. He has nothing in common with today's Republicans, however. He, like others in the party's liberal to moderate wing, has been deserted in favor of an alliance between the GOP and the wealthiest one-tenth of one percent of Americans and the corporations they control. Moore has devoted a professional lifetime toward the preservation of safe air, water and soil for Americans, only to watch Republicans, beginning with Ronald Reagan continuing through Newt Gingrich and today's U.S. House Leader Paul Ryan and U.S. Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, seek to repeal not only those laws, but others protecting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, our schools and other programs designed to shield us from scorched earth capitalism. For over two decades, Moore has tried to understand how and why the rich came to dominate the Republican Party, and sketches that evolution in his second book, Cliffs I (which is available either free standing or bundled with Crazy Right Wing Republicans and How They Got That Way). Moore believes that the Party's moderate wing, which founded the Republican Party to halt the spread of slavery, only to be forced to fight the bloodiest war in our history to preserve America, is now dead. The last chance for Americans to save themselves may be the elections of 2016, in votes cast for the lowest elected official to the highest, from local school boards and state legislatures to the Presidency itself.
