Essential Reading

The Holy Bible- Part of the Virtues and Values Pledge, you should have one in your home and a copy small enough to carry in your pocket at all times.





The Declaration of Independence and the Consitution of the United States of America- Another part of the Virtues and Values Pledge.  Always have a copy in your home and on your person.  If every member of Congress can carry this around at all times, you can too!



Thomas Paine's Common Sense- Forget the Glenn Beck version, this is the book that ignited the American Revolution, and it's just as important now as it was then. 



You know that saying Obama always likes to use, "We are our Brother's Keepers."  Ayn Rand shows what's wrong with collectivism and group-think and was one of the most influential conservative thinkers of all time.  Both of these books are stand outs of hers, but you can read virtually anything Ayn has written and learn more from it than almost any modern conservative thinker. 

Also see: The Fountainhead, Capitalism: the Unknown Ideal, and Anthem



 More Guns, Less Crime by John R. Lott, Jr- Just as important as the first amendment is the second amendment.  This is essential reading for anyone who wants to preserve their rights to own a gun. 






And finally the "KNOW YOUR ENEMY" section of my Essential Reading:




Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky- Word for Word this is the Obama Playbook.  If you want to know who Obama really is...you must read this book. 






The Communist Manifesto- Before Barack Obama there was Karl Marx, and we all know how that ended up.  For liberals this is their "Constitution."  Read the framework for the country they want to live in and why it doesn't work.




I am always looking for more books to add to the Essential Reading library.  If you have any thoughts or recommendations feel free to send me an e-mail:  lesdowrey@gmail.com
