"American Theocracy" by GOPer Kevin Phillips
NYTimes: Kevin Phillips wrote "The Emerging Republican Majority" in 1969, and then he joined the Nixon admin to help advance the changes he had foreseen in his book. But he long ago abandoned his enthusiasm for the Repub coalition he helped to build. No longer does he see GOP govt as a source of stability and order. Instead, in his latest book called "American Theocracy" he presents a nightmarish vision of ideological extremism, catastrophic fiscal irresponsibility, rampant greed and dangerous shortsightedness (Yikes! sound familiar?). "American Theocracy" may be the most alarming analysis of where we are and where we have been going in many yrs. It is not w/o polemic, but unlike many of the more glib and strident political commentaries of recent yrs, it is extensively researched and for the most part frighteningly persuasive." Jeeze, when former Nixon admin members say they are wingnuts, ya know they truly suck.
