Viguerie Book TAKEOVER Rockets to #1 on Amazon Political Parties List

Maps Battle Plan For Conservative Victory In GOP Civil War

MANASSAS, Va., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ConservativeHQ.com announced today that TAKEOVER, the latest book by conservative direct marketing pioneer and author Richard A. Viguerie was released April 8 and within hours hit #1 on Amazon's Political Parties list.

In TAKEOVER Viguerie makes the case that the most important battle in politics today isn't between Democrats and Republicans – it is the civil war within the Republican Party between limited government constitutional conservatives and the establishment proponents of Big Government Republicanism.

"If you read today's political news and opinion pages you would think the 'civil war' in the Republican Party between limited government constitutional conservatives and big government progressive Republicans started in 2009 with the rise of the TEA Party movement, or maybe after Mitt Romney gave away the 2012 presidential election," said Viguerie. "The fact of the matter is this civil war for the soul of the Republican Party has been going on for over 100 years."

Viguerie argues in TAKEOVER that the civil war in the GOP started in 1912 when Teddy Roosevelt split the Republican Party in the pursuit of his personal political agenda and made progressivism the governing philosophy of the Republican establishment.

Even though conservative ideas about how to govern tend to be the majority opinion in America, the Democratic Party is now the political home of secular liberals says Viguerie. In TAKEOVER Viguerie argues that the present leadership of the GOP is a progressive elite that sees big government as often inefficient, but not wrong.

Conservatives must take control of the Republican Party if it is to be a real alternative to the big government secularism of the Democratic Party

"One can't really understand today's battles in the Republican civil war, and the rise of the TEA Party movement," claims Viguerie, "unless one understands that the TEA Party is as much or more a rebellion against the entrenched leadership of the Republican Party who have accepted big government, as it is a reaction to specific policies of President Obama, such as Obamacare or the growth of spending, the deficit, and the $17 trillion federal debt."

The lesson for conservatives? For over a century we conservatives have been pointing our political guns at the wrong target Mr. Viguerie argues.

"It's the Primaries, stupid," says Viguerie. "The greatest impediment to conservative governance is not the Democrats, it is big government progressive Republicans." 

"Like the Biblical Jews wandering in the wilderness, conservatives are not going to get to the political Promised Land and be able to govern America according to conservative principles until the flawed, big government Republican leaders, such as Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Reince Priebus pass from the scene and are replaced with limited government constitutional conservatives."

"The fierce reaction of the Republican establishment to the rise of the TEA Party movement and the millions of new troops the TEA Party brings to the field on the conservative side is a sure sign that the GOP elite fears the civil war they started is beginning to turn," concluded Viguerie. "I wrote TAKEOVER to give grassroots limited government constitutional conservatives the history, the tools and a plan to make sure that when the battle does turn, it turns in favor of conservatives."

RICHARD A. VIGUERIE, called the "Funding Father of the conservative movement," transformed American politics in the 1960s and '70s by pioneering the use of direct mail as the first means for conservatives to bypass the main stream media. The author of a number of books on politics and the conservative movement Viguerie's latest book TAKEOVER was released to booksellers April 8.
