Author: by Cheryl K. Chumley
Published at: Humanix Books (September 22, 2020)
Socialists Don’t Sleep is about all the sneaky ways the secular left has pressed Socialism into American politics and life AND WHY CHRISTIANS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN STOP IT! “Socialists Don’t Sleep is one of those timely books that just points out the roots of what’s gone wrong in America, how we can get our country back on track to what founders envisioned and the Judeo-Christian community that holds the key to America’s long-term successes.” Gov.
Mike Huckabee, New York Times Bestselling author & Host of Huckabee Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when it comes to socialism in America, these two aren’t the problem.Per se. They’re simply symptoms of the real problems that usher in Socialism: a dysfunctional entitlement-minded society, a propaganda-pushing school system, a decayed culture, a sieve-like border.
As Cheryl Chumley points out in Socialists Don’t Sleep, we can’t root out socialism unless we first address the real problems. Michael Savage, New York Times Bestselling author & host of The Savage Nation Socialists Don’t Sleep: Christians Must Rise or America Will Fall tells how America has gone from a country of rights coming from God NOT government to a country that embraces Socialism where the US government is now expected to pretty much provide from cradle to the grave.Cheryl K.

9. The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class
Author: by Fred Siegel
Published at: Encounter Books; Updated edition (April 7, 2015)
What we think of as liberalism todaythe top and bottom coalition we associate with President Obamabegan not with Progressivism or the new deal, but rather in the wake of the post-WWI disillusionment with American society. The Revolt Against the Masses explores the inner life of American liberalism over the past 90 years, beginning with liberalism’s foundational writers and thinkerssuch as Herbert Croly, Randolph Bourne, H.G.
Wells, Sinclair Lewis, and H.L. Menckenwho despised the new worlds of mass production, mass politics, mass culture. These liberals sought to establish a true aristocracy that would serve as a counterpoint to the debasements of modern society. It was then in the seminal 1920s, that the strong strain of snobbery and contempt for the middle class, so pervasive today in the Hamptons, the New Yorker, HBO, and the Sierra Club, first defined liberalism.
Today’s brand of Barack Obama liberalism has gone further, displacing the old Main Street middle class with public sector workers, crony capitalists, and those elite arbiters of style and taste Siegel calls the liberal gentry. The Revolt Against the Masses explains how this came to be and why liberals continue to insist they act on behalf of the best interests of the middle class, even if the damned fools don’t know it.

16. Democracy in America: The Complete and Unabridged Volumes I and II (Bantam Classics)
Author: by Alexis de Tocqueville
Published at: Bantam Classics; Unabridged edition (April 4, 2000)
From America’s call for a free press to its embrace of the capitalist system, Democracy in America-first published in 1835-enlightens, entertains, and endures as a brilliant study of our national government and character. Philosopher John Stuart Mill called it “among the most remarkable productions of our time.” Woodrow Wilson wrote that de Tocqueville’s ability to illuminate the actual workings of American democracy was “possibly without rival.”For today’s readers, de Tocqueville’s concern about the effect of majority rule on the rights of individuals remains deeply meaningful.
His shrewd observations about the “almost royal prerogatives” of the president and the need for virtue in elected officials are particularly prophetic. His profound insights into the great rewards and responsibilities of democratic government are words every American needs to read, contemplate, and remember.
