What People are Saying About This

George Soros

John Sperling has assembled a smart and sobering analysis of an America in which religious fundamentalism, selfish economic interests, and the misuse of power by those who control the Government are stifling growth and scientific advancement and, more important, undermining our democracy. Thoughtful Americans of every political stripe should read this book.

Bill Bradley

If you want a fresh look at America, read this book. It�s full of valuable information about who we are, what we do, and what we value.

Donna Brazile

We could have used John Sperling�s insight in 2000, and it�s even more relevant today. The shifting demographics and the Republicans� willingness to court the religious right and corporate special interests so aggressively certainly have taken us beyond the stale "red state, blue state" view of the country. This is an important new voice in the continuing dialogue about where we Democrats are, and where the party needs to be.

Arianna Huffington

John Sperling has brilliantly exposed the truth about Retro Republicans using fear to marginalize America�s quest for fairness and social justice. Yet, as the book shows, there is a real Metro progressive majority in the country that can create "a more perfect union." It needs to speak up and take action. It can�t happen soon enough.
