End of America Named Best Political Book of 2007

In his most recent column, author John Nichols of The Nation, has named Naomi Wolf’s book The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot as the most valuable political book of 2007! On the list, Wolf joins Keith Olbermann of MSNBC, Rachel Maddow (the best radio host ever on Air America), Tim Carpenter of Progressive Democrats of America, Debra Sweet of The World Can’t Wait, and David Swanson of AfterDowningStreet.org, and many others from the grassroots to the government who are raising key issues on everything from holding this current corrupt administration accountable, to ending the Iraq War. Here is their entry for Naomi’s book:
* Most Valuable Political Book: NAOMI WOLF’s THE END OF AMERICA: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot (Chelsea Green). When Wolf started writing about the drift of the United States toward fascism, she was dismissed by some as another casual commentator blowing off some anti-Bush steam. But her detailing of the parallels between steps taken by the current administration and moves made by the 20th century’s most notorious dictators to transform democracies into authoritarian states is convincing as it is chilling. And Wolf is not just complaining; she’s the “face” of the American Freedom Campaign’s important drive to identify and confront assaults on basic liberties and the system of checks and balances.
Congratulations, Naomi and thanks to John Nichols for adding this important book to his list. It’s good company to be sure, and Nichols knows books. He penned an excellent book in 2006, called The Genius of Impeachment: The Founders’ Cure for Royalism. To read the full article, click here.

Currently, they are seeking 1,000 lawyers to sign a petition calling for a special prosecutor to investigate the crimes of the Bush Administration. And, as an aside, Vermont’s own Independent Senator Bernie Sanders also made the list as the most valuable senator. Maybe it’s something in the air, or the water or the soil, but Vermont does seems to offer up more than its fair share of spirit to help replenish this drained nation—from books to politicians.
