Thaddeus McCotter: A Cry for Sanity

Wilmington — He's "the only elected official smart enough and hip enough to beat the Left at its own game" (Andrew Breitbart); he's "the next big thing" (S. E. Cupp); he has "the most trenchant voice on Capitol Hill" (John Batchelor); he "brilliantly resuscitates our most endangered constitutional principles: limited government and individual freedom" (Monica Crowley).
He's U.S. Representative Thaddeus McCotter—and his wise, refreshingly straight-shooting message is exactly what we need in our troubled, dangerous times. In a wise, often wry new book, Seize Freedom! (ISI Books, February 21, 2011), McCotter makes a spirited cry for sanity in a chaotic age.
Fearlessly attacking the insanity that pervades WashingtonSeize Freedom! speaks to all those Americans who in November stood up against a government that—under both parties—has swollen to grotesque proportions, racked up staggering debt, and become a threat to individuals' freedom; to all those parents suffering sleepless nights worrying that they will lose their jobs, their homes, and their hopes for their children; to all those citizens struggling to make sense of a society disdainful of—and destructive to—the traditional culture of faith, truth, virtue, and beauty.
McCotter confronts a quartet of generational challenges that too many leaders ignore or belittle:
·         The social, economic, and political upheavals of globalization: McCotter points the way to a free, prosperous, and humane twenty-first-century economy
·         A world war against evil enemiesSeize Freedom! shows why we are engaged not in a War on Terror but in a War for Freedom
·         Communist China as a strategic threat and rival model of governance: The author explains how the United States must contain this repressive, expansionist regime
·         Moral relativism's erosion of our self-evident truths: McCotter reveals why faith, family, community, and country remain cornerstones of America's greatness
Bold, incisive, and witty, Seize Freedom! is the guide for those concerned citizens and committed conservatives who wish to put an end to the ideologues' simplistic solutions and false comforts. Thaddeus McCotter has charted the path of truth and renewal for America.

Thaddeus G. McCotter is the U.S. representative for Michigan's Eleventh District. He has written for the American Spectator, the Detroit NewsHuman Events, Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood, and many other publications, and is a frequent guest on Fox News, CNN, and The Dennis Miller Show. McCotter, who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Detroit and earned his J.D. from the University of Detroit Law School, lives in his hometown of Livonia, Michigan, with his wife, their three children, and his Stratocaster.
