For those of you interested in the grassroots revolution that has swept the nation – the tea parties – there’s a great new book out on the subject! Released today, A New American Tea Party: : The Counterrevolution Against Bailouts, Handouts, Reckless Spending, and More Taxes chronicles the movement’s growth, from just a glimmer in Rick Santinelli’s eye on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade to the protests outside state capitols across the country. It sets the record straight on “astroturfing,” the movement’s tumultuous relationship with the media, and the shape of things to come in the future.

Written by John O’Hara, one of the organizers of the very first tea parties in 2009, the book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the expansion of government and the future of the republic.
