Crashing the Gate: How American politics is about to change

By Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas Zúniga

Introduction by Evan Thornley


Crashing the Gate is the latest book on American politics by two young political activists on the front lines who give us new insights into what is happening in the US today.

‘This ‘simple’ book may be one of the most important that has come out of the progressive movement in over a decade.' Aaron Barlow, ePluribus Media

‘True to their calling, Armstrong and Moulitsas – masters of the blog – provide a no-holds-barred overview of the political landscape.  If you want to know why blogs have become crucial to the re-establishment of American democracy, read this book.’ George Lakoff, author of Don’t Think of an Elephant!

‘There is a new politics being born in America that isn’t beholden to the rich, the dishonest, and the corrupt. Crashing the Gate shows how that politics has emerged, and how it is bringing power back to the people. This is a book that the political establishment will likely fear – but only because it proves that ordinary citizens are ready to take back their government.’ David Sirota, author of Hostile Takeover: How Big Money & Corruption Conquered Our Government & How We Take It Back

Jerome Armstrong and Marcos Moulitsas Zuniga have become famous in US political circles for using their blogs to revitalise progressive politics and especially the US Democratic Party. Moulitsas founded the blog, DailyKos.com in 2002, which now gets more than a million visitors per day.

In Crashing the Gate they show how the Bush Administration is stuffing up America and expose the real tensions in the coalition of the corporate conservatives  -  the neocons, the theocons of the religious right, the paleocons or old school libertarians - that make up the Republicans’ activist support base.

‘An insightful guide to how the Democratic Party can retake power.’  Peter Beinart, New York Times
