“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

What's on Ed's reading list?

I know you're in a reading rut, what with the dime-store romance novelettes, tired vampire tales, and lame self-help pamphlets your parents put in your Christmas stocking so that you might finally get your life on track, but fret not, there's some excellent reading out there that'll both inspire and entertain you.

My friend Pat over at Belchspeak showed a couple of the books he's planning to read so I thought instead of sharing what's in my iPod as usual, I'd share what I'm reading right now.

Here's a short list, not complete, but this'll get you started:

-Against All Enemies -- Tom Clancy

-The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America -- Nick Gillespie

-The Litigators -- John Grisham

The Ghost - non fiction, history of the Caucasus region

Mark Twain - his real autobiography released last year 100 years after his death per instruction

Racing - fiction a story told from the perspective of a dog, quite good
