He points to the people he holds responsible for the dissolution of these values with considerable wit and the insight he has gained from his years of service to Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, and George H. W. Bush.
I think all Independent voters will enjoy and relate to this book. A young Republican for Goldwater, who worked for subsequent Republican Presidents, now seems politically homeless. As an Independent myself, I wish the Republican Party would offer a candidate I could honestly consider voting for but all I've been getting lately is either tools or puppets. Alas, I don't think 2012 will change the party.

This book isn't for partisan party-lovers (or haters). Written by a man who clearly knows where he stands, and why he supports (and opposes) the major parties, it gives clear, clean insight into the developments in the Republican Party in the last fifty years. If there was one word to describe this book, it would be 'honest', there's no pretension or spin on behalf of the author; instead he provides a clear understanding of his point of view, and an intelligent analysis of why it's failing.
This book openly criticizes most people in the political spectrum, but keeps the punches above the belt. Listen, understand something you (and the RNC) don't understand.
