Author, political blogger urges Americans to use their voices in new book

NEW YORK – From “hope and change” and the Tea Party movement to the revolutions happeningacross the Middle East, people taking a collective stand has redefined the political landscape around the world, yet most American citizens still consider themselves powerless when it comes to making a difference in political issues.But if political blogger and author Bill O’Connell has anything to do with it, Americans will find their voice, get off the sideline and start speaking up – more than ever before. Whether it’s for or against teachers unions, health care reform or any other political issue, O’Connell believes a single vote every two or four years isn’t enough to preserve American liberties. In his new book, Liberty’s Lifeline: Engaging the Grassroots Movement to Stop the Erosion of American Freedoms (Bridgeway Books, April 2011),O’Connell offers concrete steps for seeing real change in Washington.

“We are facing perilous times,” O’Connell says. “Our government is spending at an accelerating pace and encroaching on our liberties at the same time. It’s time for the people to get into the arena.”

Liberty’s Lifeline takes a hard look at governmental policies, pointing out the urgent need for citizeninvolvement in politics, while avoiding the mudslinging that so often accompanies American politics.

Based on his political blog entries, Liberty’s Lifeline tackles the day’s most prominent issues, includinghealth care, the fiscal crisis and the war on terror. O’Connell compares politics today to those of the Founding Fathers and discusses America’s need for political competence.

“There is an arrogance among the governing class that says they are far better qualified to solve America’s tough problems and tell us how to live our lives, never mind that this country was built by millions of individual men and women who solved their problems without asking for the government’s help or advice,” says O’Connell.

In an interview, O’Connell can discuss:

  • Liberty’s Lifeline: Why America needs restoring and how we can do it
  • Getting politically active: What it takes and what you will gain
  • Politics 101: How to stay on top of a constantly changing subject
  • Voicing your opinions: The impact an individual can have on the political landscape
  • From health care to terrorism, the side-effects of big government
  • How the Tea Party movement takes America back to the basics

Bill O’Connell received his Bachelor of Engineering from Manhattan College, his Master of Business Administration in finance from Fordham University and his Master of Science in computer science from Pace University. He started his political blog in 2008 and has since become an active member of Tea Party365, a New York City branch of the Tea Party. O’Connell currently resides in Long Island, N.Y., with his wife and their four children. For more information about Liberty’s Lifeline
