Item description for Power to the People by Laura Ingraham...
Overview Top-rated radio personality Laura Ingraham, a convert to Catholicism, is fed up with the rule of the elites, and Power to the People issues a call to arms-a plea to reinvigorate our birthright of liberty, to reconnect to our American heritage, to revive our commitment to traditional, conservative principles, and to grow as people by summoning our moral resolve and living our faith. Ingraham exposes the threats we face from an emboldened cultural Left, global dogmatists, science worshippers, and politicians who spend more time on their hair than on constituency outreach. She also offers real-world solutions for how we can demand more from our leaders and ourselves. Power to the People will not just rile up Ingraham's millions of fans, it will also incite readers to do their part to protect the country that we love. "It is ours to lose," she writes, "and there are many at home and abroad who are more than willing to take it from us. Let's get to work. If each of us does our part, we can't lose." And amidst these rallying cries and clarion calls to America, Ingraham reveals with heart wrenching honesty and in poignant detail her battle with cancer and the surprising gifts the insidious illness bestowed upon her-incredible strength through weakness, the meaning of sacrificial concern for others, and most importantly, a new-found and deeper Catholic faith. In true Laura Ingraham spitfire style, Power to the People rallies Americans to grab their pitchforks and storm the castles of the old media, over-reaching judges, openborders politicians, radical academics, and unelected bureaucrats. She challenges people to not only take back the power, but to also give of themselves to recapture America's spirit and greatness.

Many Sermon Topics Nov 2, 2008
The book was well written and organized in a topical way so as to make it easy to actually teach straight from it. Her writings are such that it will make a great resource for future sermon preparation. The stats, quotes, etc are priceless. The book will endure for a long time and it's truths never ending.

This is a great book. Once I picked it up I had trouble putting it down. Very honest and interesting. I am going to buy some more copies and give them as stocking stuffers this Christmas. This is the kind of book you want to share and tell every one you know about!

Exceptions to the Rules as they apply to Laura Ingraham - and other Family Values Tales from the Crypt Aug 3, 2008
This is a woman who has the gall to expouse relentlessly a child needs a mother and father - when she, a single woman, adopts a child. Ms. Ingraham writes in her book, Power to the Family, "The whole purpose of marriage is to bind a man and woman together for the purpose - or at least the possibility - of of nurturing children."
How can Laura "risk" creating an alternative family lifestyle choice at the expense of the wellbeing of an innocent child?
Family values queen, my arse.
John Lennon Would Be Proud Aug 2, 2008
Laura boldly challenges Americans to take back power from the corrupt and amoral government leaders that have had this country in a stranglehold for the last 8 years. In using the famous expression made popular by the civil rights movement and by her spiritual hero, John Lennon, Ingraham reminds the citizens of this great nation that, hey..."Power to the People". Ingraham clearly and rationally lays out the case for ousting the current administration and regaining the democratic principals that the founders had established to give ...you got it...Power to the People. Ingram starts out blasting the White House decision to go to war with a country that posed no real threat to us. She eloquently writes about the thousands upon thousands of innocents that were killed and expresses heartfelt rage at the likes of Rumsfeld and Cheney for glorifying the shock and awe strategy that rained bombs upon the children of Baghdad whom she cries for every night. In addition to pointing out all of the injustices she has seen perpetated by this administration, she also has strong words for the congressmen who have supported this president's positions on torture and dismantling our civil rights. There is also a lengthy but worthwhile section on how our political and religious leaders, such as Larry Craig, Mark Foley, David Vitter, Bob Livingston, James McGreevy, Ted Haggard, Lindsay Graham and the many others she writes about, through their unpardonable deviant sexual behavior, have brought about the total decay of family values and morality in this country (I haven't actually seen anything about Lindsay Graham doing anything sexually wierd...just guessing). Ingram is America's most powerful spokeperson for bringing back...Power to the People.
