These books and movies are a great start to helping uncover the truth behind the Bush Administration, the radical right, and our government in general.

An Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore's movie and book about global warming. Hopefully this will galvanize people into action on the most important issue we face today. (After all, if there's no Earth to live on, nothing else matters.) Frightening stuff.

Fahrenheit 9/11. This movie is excellent. It won the Palm d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, the highest award there. It covers everything from the 2000 election to the war in Iraq. Michael Moore knows what he's talking about. (Go to his website to see the proof of all of the claims made in the movie.)

Bowling for Columbine. Another Michael Moore movie. It talks about the shootings at Columbine High School. Both this movie and Fahrenheit 9/11 are not really suitable for anyone under the age of 13 or anyone who doesn't want to see blood or hear curses.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right by Al Franken. This book is not only very funny, but very enlightening. You should definitely read it.

The Truth (With Jokes) by Al Franken. Franken's done it again. By exposing some of the more unpleasant aspects of our friends on the far side of the political fence, Al Franken gives us what we desperately need: The Truth (with jokes, of course!).

Stupid White Men... And Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation by Michael Moore. This talks about the problems facing the country.

Dude, Where's My Country? by Michael Moore. A bit like Fahrenheit 9/11 in its content.

The Price of Loyalty: George W. Bush, the White House, and the Education of Paul O'Neill by Ron Suskind. It's very informative, but disturbing in the way it portrays the daily routine of the Bush Administration. There's a lot of complicated, technical financial talk, though.

50 Reasons Not to Vote for Bush by Robert Sterling. Exposes the major problems with Bush and his administration.

House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship Between the World's Two Most Powerful Dynasties by Craig Unger. This book is very disturbing in the information it gives you about the relationship between the Bushes and the Saudi Royal Family.

Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror by Richard A. Clarke. Richard Clarke was the counterterrorism czar for Bill Clinton and George W. Bush (until he resigned in 2003). This book is an account of the past two decades of anti-terrorism work in this country, and it specifically criticizes the policies of the Bush Administration.

What's the Matter With Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America by Thomas Frank. The author is from Kansas himself, and he's well qualified to speak on the topic of the book. He talks about why people in "red" states consistantly vote against their own interests by voting Republican.

Bushworld: Enter at Your Own Risk by Maureen Dowd. This book is a collection of articles and columns written by the best and funniest newspaper columnist in the country.

Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush by John W. Dean. Compares the Bush Administration to that of Richard Nixon, except that Dean, who worked for Nixon, says Bush is worse.

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Presents America: The Book by the writers of the Daily Show, Jon Stewart. This is a very funny parody of a history textbook, written the way only the Daily Show people can!
