The Uprising: An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring Wall Street and Washington | [David Sirota]

The Uprising: An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring Wall Street and Washington

Job outsourcing. Perpetual busy signals at government agencies. Slashed paychecks. Stolen elections. A war without end, fatally mismanaged. Ordinary Americans on both the Right and Left have had it with Washington politicians who belong to what David Sirota calls "the Money Party" and are organizing to change the status quo.

In his new book, Sirota investigates whether this uprising can be transformed into a unified political movement. Irreverent, insightful, and invigorating, The Uprising is an adventure that shows how the governed have stopped consenting and started taking action.

Publisher's Summary

Job outsourcing. Perpetual busy signals at government agencies. Slashed paychecks. Stolen elections. A war without end, fatally mismanaged. Ordinary Americans on both the Right and Left have had it with Washington politicians who belong to what David Sirota calls "the Money Party" and are organizing to change the status quo.

In his new book, Sirota investigates whether this uprising can be transformed into a unified political movement. Sirota takes us far from the national media spotlight into the trenches, where real change is happening---from the headquarters of the most powerful third party in America to the bowels of the U.S. Senate; from the auditorium of an ExxonMobil shareholders meeting to the quasi-military staging area of a vigilante force on the Mexican border.

Sirota reminds us that the Declaration of Independence ("America's original uprising manifesto") says that governments "derive their powers from the consent of the governed." Irreverent, insightful, and invigorating, The Uprising is an adventure that shows how the governed have stopped consenting and started taking action.

"David Sirota details with clarity the sharp knife of corporate greed pointed at the throat of our democracy....If you love your country, buy The Uprising, read it, and act." (Joe Trippi, author of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised)
"The Uprising should be read by anyone who wants to understand exactly how the ordinary person has been sold out by the political system."(Matt Taibbi, national political correspondent for Rolling Stone)

    "Tiresome"

    So many words, so few thoughts. Yawn inspiring and the narrators colorless reading does not help. Maybe it gets better at some point but I must admit I could not endure the entire 7 hours.
