Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

Book Review: How to Save America by A. E. Duzett

I originally bought "How to Save America: A Tactical Guide for Practical Patriots" by Allie Winegar Duzett because I've been a fan of her blog: True Politics USA.

Although I've read a lot of Duzett (she is a prolific blogger and activist) I was rather surprised at the aggressiveness with which she schools the reader on how to be a conservative activist.

The book's undeclared and understated motto is found in the introduction: "There is always something we can personally do to make sure our dreams for the world can happen." Duzett could have more accurately stated the motto: "There's always a bunch you can do--and frankly should do--personally to make your dreams happen, and for starters this book will teach you 1,001 of them."

Memorable discussions from How to Save America include Saul Alinsky's "sh*t in", leaving the Obama Satan mask at home during Tea Party rallies (pic below h/t The Freedom Fighter's Journal), and the "Progressive Bake Sale" (p. 125).

Duzett spends a significant portion of the book addressing programs and ideas applicable to the college-aged including introducing me to various organizations available to students such as: and
The 142-page book read easy for me, comfortable enough to tackle in a day. Also, Duzett has provided ample excerpts from her book on her blog. I throughly enjoyed How to Save America and recommend it as a way of brainstorming ideas and motivation for those times when we may feel alone, confused, or helpless as to how to react to the tsunami of socialism we are inundated with.

How to Save America, released May 2010, is available in paperback on or CreateSpace for $10.

Thanks for the suggestion! I've never heard of AE Duzette, but now I'll buy her book! It reminds me of Laura Ingraham's "Power to the People."
I'm a member of Americans For Prosperity here in NE FL and grassroots activism, is what we do on a regular basis.

I had no idea how hard it is to save a nation until Obama came along. So much work to many millions of patriots needed...

Allie Duzett has done a remarkable job of kindling enthusiasm in the work that we have to do to save America. Her 1,001 creative ideas on how to do that are very inspiring. We all need to have more information and then know to use it. Thank you Allie for your great work.!
