3 Most Important Political Books To Read

 Before the 2012 Presidential Elections

We are only a week away from the most important Republican convention in years and only 76 days away from the most important Presidential elections ever.

America is at a tipping point struggling to preserve its identity and uniqueness, yet at the same time millions of people are undecided which way to go. The Hope and Change initiative turned into a Smear and Fear campaign in which the GOP candidates are vilified and misrepresented by their opponents.

Negative campaigning is nothing new in America. In fact, the tradition goes back to 1800 when the Vice President Thomas Jefferson campaigned against President John Adams. It was ugly then, it is ugly now. But when Obama's campaign accused the GOP candidate Governor Romney of murder and felony, I had to wonder what would come next. Sooner than I could even think, the Vice President Biden painted a vision of slavery to a  predominantly black audience. The Republicans "will put y'all back in chains!" was all he could yell for the lack of a better argument. What can I say? The media smiled politely at this outrageous remark...

If you have a spare moment and wish to take your eyes off the news, grab an eye-opening  book and relax in the comfort of your porch. I found three books that may bring your lemonade into a boiling point. Great research, courage, and intellectual honesty is what distinguishes them from so many other recently published books. They are definitely worth reading especially if you are still undecided.

Remember, this November is not about Obama's future. It is about yours.
