This book is a layman description of why it is vital the masses not stand by the sideline and think that someone else will vote in a honorable hard working leader president, cabinet, house of representatives, and all government personnel in the next election. They should not stay quiet until the s*** hits the fan, then it is too late. Want to read about the behind the scenes, the reasons why we as the people cannot and must not stand by the sidelines anymore. Author Tom Thomas Ufert has a gift to formulate the written word into understandable terms and pleasurable reading. This book should be in the top ten to preview, listen, read, and issue as a summer reading assignment in all families. Message—take action now before it is too late, America falls apart as we point fingers at each other and blame one another while the American dream dies and the top VIPs laugh at all of the sheep who stood by and did nothing to transform government to be for the people not the other way around. June 6th was the release of Political Craps so there is still time to be part of not apart from the future. This author knows the truths and he is willing to bring them to light, are you ready to hear them, take action and have no regrets. Learn more about the author, his views, decide which path to take and be a changing agent in the formulation of governmental bylaws and such. Starting on June 6th, 2014, author Tom Ufert hopes this book may be the catalyst to spark the fire of our consciousness and vote in the true politicians that care for the people, work for the people and save beautiful America.

“Political Craps” by Tom Ufert is one of the most interesting political tomes of modern times. This is a book filled with juicy information that will make most political nuts and non-political nuts roll over and thank god for Tom Ufert. What makes “Political Craps” more interesting than its rivals? It really comes down to Uferts mastery of all things political. His knowledge and energy are boundless as he takes the reader through the trials and tribulations of Congress and the President. With, I believe, a life-long connection to the hill Ufert creates a vision and takes readers towards that vision with alarming clarity. Ufert explains that we have problems in our political system and tries to remedy them. Ufert also shines love and patriotism and never crosses the line. He is frustrated with the way things are—but he knows that better times are ahead if the right things are done. I found “Political Craps” to be an intelligent, interesting read that took the very best of political reading and placed all the ingredients together into one volume. Ufert sounds Churchillian at times and then morphs into Reagan and then turns into Tom Ufert. He is a powerful speaker and one can only hope an audio book is on its way to release. Entertaining stuff from a man who knows that power on the hill can mean either recovery or further desolation. Fantastic book!

This is a great book. Even if you end up not of the viewpoint of the author, he does such a good job informing the reader of so many different topics regarding our politics. He wrote it in an endeavor to increase knowledge, and so long as one reads it, that is exactly what it would accomplish. Everything from understanding what gerrymandering or lobbying is, to knowing various legal pushes that have been made and passed or failed (attempts to regulate lobbying, PPACA, the debt ceiling issues, the shrinking middle class, NSA issues and so much more). The author goes through "Compromise, Ranker, Affluence, Policy, and Stupidity" (or CRAPS) and how they affect our government. Rather than leaving our government to luck, like a casino table, we need to understand our government and where we stand on the issues so that we can make a difference.

Reviewed by Suzanne Cowles for Readers' Favorite Political Craps by Thomas Urfet is a call to action for US citizens to protect freedom and become informed participant in the political process. This detailed book examines the history of politics in a way that is easy to understand and shows that the shenanigans of politicians originated in the early history of our nation. The lack of compromise between parties is having dire effects on our country. Coupled with economic stagnation and a polarized and dysfunctional political system, we deserve real leaders with doable solutions. In order to present a non-biased argument, Urfet chronicles his own experiences as a 30-year political activist, public servant and poli-science graduate. He also worked on eleven campaigns and witnessed character assassinations, transformations by professional image handlers, general stupidity and the power of affluence. Urfet’s lengthy professional resume gives him a clear view of what effective government requires. Current events dictate that something has to change for the better soon, or this country may not be able to survive. Urfet’s goal is one of civic motivation, but his opinions are at times a bit harsh. All Americans desire leaders who are fiscally responsible and provide a strong defense, so hear his rallying cry. This book does not endeavor to solve complex social issues; it merely points out that the status quo must change before deficits destroy whatever credibility remains. Political Craps by Thomas Urfet is a great primer for anyone with limited knowledge about US politics and does inspire the reader to become an active participant in the political process to protect freedom.

In the book Political Craps by Tom Ufert, there are many things which make a person want to become more informed and involved, as is brought out throughout the book. So what and why should you take time to find and add this to your reading list this year? Several reasons, such as understanding why the people of America at such a time in history must hold those elected accountable, and moving into the next Presidential election in a few years, Americans must be stirred to action and Political Craps can do just that. How? Tom Ufert “is an inspirational voice in our troubled times.” He received his bachelor of arts in political science and history as a scholarship recipient from Centenary College of Louisiana. Tom is a former Rotary International graduate Fellow who attended Australian National University in Canberra, ACT, specializing in East Asian political affairs and was a White House Fellow nominee.  He is a former Lyndon Baines Johnson Congressional Intern and constituency aid for two former United States members of Congress.   His past services for 11 political campaigns on both sides of the aisle were highly valued by former Louisiana Governor Charles “Buddy” Roemer, Henson Moore the former assistant chief of staff to U.S. Vice President George H.W. Bush, and the recently retired U.S. Trade Ambassador, Ron Kirk.  (Biography Courtesy Tom Ufert) During my reading of this very well thought out book, there were very revealing information which can inspire you and many Americans today as to why being involved is not just a right, but a duty to stay informed as well be involved with the people whom are elected to serve and represent the people. I am truly impressed by the research as well the well thought out detail to involve from one who not only cares for the country, but as well doing his part in getting each and every fellow American involved! So why take the time and read Political Craps? A few taglines will help get you inspired to read it today: • It is every citizen’s right and responsibility to demand a new class of political leaders that care more about our jobs and livelihood than their own.   • While reading Political C.R.A.P.S. the reader should keep two primary thoughts in mind.  First, are you as informed and educated as you should be to make a wise decision with your vote that will directly impact every aspect of your life?  Second, if you’re not, then ask why!   • America needs real leaders who are prepared to make the tough decisions that are essential to the nation’s wellbeing without regard for their own political fortunes (Taglines Courtesy of Political Craps by Tom Ufert) As any person who is new to politics or the understanding of how the government itself works, what is written by Author Tom Ufert has just that person in mind. If you are anything like me, I follow politics a little, but what has been written and how it was thoughtfully researched to help the reader understand better how the inner workings of government function. Very insightful information, as well some very interesting history to the political mudslinging which allowed the reader to understand the background of how and why the title Political Craps is aptly named. So how do you find out more?
