Are you sick of the nonsense in Washington? The morass of corruption and favoritism? The upside-down, inside-out economics that only make sense to someone who never had to balance a real budget? But what can one person do?
Sharon Cooper was a housewife in the early 1990s when "Hillary-care," the first attempt at stuffing a nationalized healthcare siphon into the pocket of the middle class, was attempted. Cooper decided enough was enough, got involved, and fought on the front lines against the forces of economic idiocy. The lessons she learned in that contest led her to write Taxpayer's Tea Party: How to Become Politically Active-and Why.
This book is a gritty, glorious account of how to get things done in a representative republic. Did it work for Cooper? In the past decade-and-a-half, she's gone from politically-uninvolved housewife to six-term state legislator-and ignited a fire of rebellion under thousands of taxed-to-the-limit taxpayers that hasn't gone out yet.
Taxpayers' Tea Party is more than a manual for political revenge: it's a step-by-step guide in straight text and cartoon form to carry out our own American Revolution.
