At a time when the national political debate is about inequality and fairness, bestselling auAsthor David Horowitz and coauthor Jacob Laksin have written an unsettling book about the distribuAstion of power in America. Thoroughly researched and amply documented, The New Leviathan overAsturns the conventional wisdom about which end of the political spectrum represents the rich and powAserful, and which represents the people. The Democratic Party presents itself to the electorate as the party of working families and the poor. In the 2000 election campaign, Democrat Al Gore ran on the slogan aThe People vs. the Powerful, a while President Obama describes himAsself as a agrassroots organizera and a spokesman for afairnessa and aprogressive change.a Such is the world of political myth. In reality, the DemoAscrats and the Obama progressives represent the richest and most powerful political machine in American history. Backed by a near trillion-dollar treasury in Americaas oldest and largest tax-exempt foundations, progressives outspend conservatives by a factor of seven to one. In The New Leviathan, David Horowitz and Jacob Laksin examine this growing financial power of left-wing organizations and politicians. They show how left-wing foundations underAswrote the political career of Barack Obama and how massive funding advantages for progressive proposals have disenfranchised American voters and shifted the national policy debate dramatically to the left. The New Leviathan draws connections between the Obama administration and progresAssive organizations from labor unions to media outlets to nonprofits to political groups, and shows how on key policy frontsanational security, immigration, citizenship, environment, and health careathe sheer force of left-wing financial resources has reconfigured the nationas political agenda.How the Left-Wing Money-Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens Americaa#39;s Future David Horowitz, Jacob Laksin.
