Book Description

Feb. 22 2011
If the midterm elections were a declaration of war on the status quo, Rand Paul leads the battle charge. Voters fearful of growing government and debt have found voice in the Tea Party phenomenon and the movement continues to deliver a message that Washington, D.C. has found impossible to ignore.

In THE TEA PARTY GOES TO WASHINGTON, the newly elected senator and self-described "constitutional conservative" explains why his party has to stand by its limited government rhetoric and why the federal government must be stuffed back into its constitutional box. Given the problems our nation faces, these are not mere suggestions, but moral imperatives.

Rand Paul and those who voted for him want to stop borrowing, end the bailouts, and entitlements and the spending. In THE TEA PARTY GOES TO WASHINGTON you'll learn:

  • The history of the Tea Party and why it isn't "extreme"
  • How both parties operate outside the Constitution
  • Rand's plan for a balanced budget
  • Why the Tea Party will endure
Now is the time to get America back on track-- this is the moment of the new revolution that will take us back to our grass roots, to the country of our founding fathers.

It's a new day in Washington-- as the Tea Party graduates from populist outrage to political influence, Rand Paul stands poised to become one of its greatest champions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rand Paul and the Tea Party Are Now Major Political Forces Feb. 15 2011
By Corie Whalen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As someone who watched Rand Paul's Senate race from the beginning, when it was considered highly unlikely that he'd ever be able to beat establishment Republican candidate (and former Democrat) Trey Grayson in a primary, I find that the title and content of this extremely well-written book sum up perfectly both Paul's rise to the top and the movement that got him there. Love 'em or hate 'em, there's no doubt that tea partiers had a serious impact on the outcome this past November, and Paul's election to the Senate is a prime example of just that. Without the force of the tea party movement, sick of politics as usual and ready to support an outsider, there's no way an opthamologist with little professional political experience would have been able to first beat Kentucky's Secretary of State and then Attorney General. This book not only details Paul's journey - including entertaining stories about run-in's with some of his more establishment colleagues - but it also lays out the principles that Paul stands by. Not surprisingly, Paul's core beliefs mirror the concerns held by members of the tea party movement across the nation. I think this book will appeal not only to tea partiers seeking to reaffirm their own convictions, but to those interested in truly understanding the movement rather than maligning it. It's an easy, fun and inspiring read, and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book For The Liberty Movement. Feb. 23 2011
By Free Man In Kentucky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When I got this book I decided to read it right away. I was at ground zero in Kentucky during the whole campaign and his painting of the landscape is completely accurate. The description of this book should be more about the "Liberty" movement than the Tea Party. His views on foreign policy (which take up 20%+ of the book) are the most anti-war in all of US politics. He does more to break down the bad policy that was established in the last 30 years by the GOP.

He is not light on the Democrats but, he does focus mainly on GOP politics. He also discusses the interview from his side in terms of the Maddow interview. I suggest anyone who reads this and comes away with "He's too extreme" are more likely than not partisan by nature. This book is a big mirror and he points it at both parties as well as himself. He and Jack Hunter have written a memorable book in such a short period of time. I can't wait till they develop the next book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Politician To Watch In The Future Jan. 13 2012
By Frederick S. Goethel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Rand Paul is an interesting political figure who was elected to the Senate to represent the Commonwealth of Kentucky as a member of the group of Tea Party candidates. The book that he has written is a combination of his take on what the Tea Party is and how it operates, his campaign and what his positions on various issues are.

Paul spends the majority of time dealing with his campaign and relations with the Tea Party. His view of the Tea Party is quite different from mine, however I feel confident that his view is based on his actual experience with them. In my case, I can't agree with him on how the Tea Party functions or what they stand for, but that may buttress his argument that they are very independent. While he sees people of all colors and persuasions in the Tea Party in Kentucky, my local Tea Party has sent out several racist e-mails and is as white as the driven snow. Also, the Tea Parties form my area share information, events, e-mails and member lists, where in Paul's Kentucky, apparently they maintain almost total independence.

In dealing with the issues, as he sees them, he does not provide a lot of depth to his positions. He does correct some misinformation from the campaign and I believe he is less radical than what was presented in the media, however, he has a bad habit of labeling things as "unconstitutional" without stating why he believes that or what Articles he believes are being violated. He quote heavily from Jefferson as a source, however Jefferson was one of the few leaders who did not attend the convention and have input into the document. That tends to leave what Jefferson says as what Jefferson believes, not what the framers meant.

I can only give this book three stars, as he doesn't go into a lot of detail about positions and he doesn't do a good job of backing up his arguments about constitutionality. It does not represent how I feel about Paul politically and were he to go into more detail I would have given the book five stars.

Overall, the book is an interesting and quick read that should be read by people of all political persuasions. I don't know what Paul's future in politics holds, however I sense he may be a leader and is therefore someone to watch in the coming years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book but Needs to Rethink Some Things June 3 2011
By Maceo Eric Culberson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I really like Rand Paul, as I do his father. I wish we could pass a fair tax and reduce the power that big institutions have over our lives. The problem is that Paul and others with whom I have general agreement also make arguments that are not well thought out. For example, the single minded focus on big government misses a key point, we are probably more vulnerable to big corporate interests, the very world from which the financial crisis arose and almost sank the nation. Government is OUR tool. We elect the government and it is the only big institution that ordinary people can exercise any control over. We need government to serve its regulatory function or we are all at greater risk of economic disasters or even environmental disasters, like in Japan. But we need government to be genuinely ours, genuinely responsive to democratic controls. This has become harder and harder because government mostly serves big corporate interests, including Rupert Murdoch with his powerful Fox News. The narrow focus on government as bad has put blinders on Rand and many of my friends. They can't see the dangers in weak government in the face of very powerful corporate interests. We run the risk of going back to feudalism, with these corporate interests serving as the new feudal lords. This is what is missing in Rand's book and most of the arguments from the Tea Party. I wish we could be a bit more thoughtful and learn to fight the broader battle to give individuals and small businesses more control over their lives by restraining both big corporations and forcing government to be so responsive to citizens that no one feels it is "too big."

5.0 out of 5 stars Tea Party Manifesto Feb. 23 2011
By Christopher Czernel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fantastic book.

I am a Libertarian turned Ron Paul Republican, and I closely followed Rand's campaign for US Senate. Of course, I had to get this book :)

Rand does a great job outlining Tea Party philosophy, while acknowledging the decentralized and multifaceted nature of this grassroots movement. He squarely points the finger at both political parties and shows both are to blame for our out of control spending and current economic mess. I liked hearing about his life growing up with Ron Paul as his father, and how that has influenced his political philosophy.

This book will help reaffirm people's belief in the case for Liberty & limited Constitutionally-bound government.

Wikipedia defines a manifesto as "a public declaration of principles and intentions". This book is a Tea Party manifesto.
