Follow the Money
[how George W. Bush and the Texas Republicans Hog-tied America]Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2007
In Follow the Money, award-winning journalist and sixth-generation Texan John Anderson shows how the Texas political system came to be dominated by a sophisticated, well-funded group of conservative Republicans who, after elevating George W. Bush to the American presidency, went about applying their hardball, high-dollar politicking to Washington D.C. Influence peddling, deal making, and money laundering followed -- much of it accomplished well away from the public eye. The damaging fallout has, one way or another, touched nearly all Americans, Democrat and Republican alike. Follow the Money reveals the hidden web of influence that links George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the Texas Republicans to the 2000 recount in Florida, congressional redistricting schemes, scandals in the energy sector, the destruction of basic constitutional protections, and the Iraq War torture scandals. Told with verve, style, and a not-so-occasional raised eyebrow, Anderson's account arcs directly into tomorrow's headlines. Startling in his revelations, Follow the Money is sure to spark controversy and much-needed debate concerning which direction America goes next.
