The Progressives' Handbook:
Get the Facts and Make a Difference Now
"The reality-based community [believes] that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality... That's not the way the world really works anymore. We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality." - an aide to George W. Bush, October 2004
It's not easy these days for "reality-based" Americans. Unemployment is up, living wages are down, over 36 million of us struggle with poverty and 47 million languish without health insurance. Thousands of service members and countless civilians have died in pointless quagmires in Afghanistan and Iraq, while the administration's $670 billion so-called war on terror ravages America's reputation and threatens national security.
Yet Bush tells us to "stay the course."
Only fools stay the course when it's heading over a cliff, and that's why I wrote The Progressives' Handbook: Get the Facts and Make a Difference Now series.
Volume 1 of the series (updated in November 2007) details the Bush administration's record and provides focused action tips on US Weapons of Mass Destruction, Women's Issues, Education and Mainstream Media. Volume 2 covers the Environment, Elections & Voting and Foreign Policy.
As the US approaches a critical presidential election, it's more important than ever to face Bush's legacy. The Progressives' Handbooks aim to fuel the debate.
Now more than ever, informed and inspired grassroots activism is
essential. And in that spirit, welcome to The Progressives' Handbook -
