Product Details


“In his lively new book, Alan Colmes makes a very persuasive case that the liberal principles inside all of us—even the most conservative—are to be celebrated, not shunned. Thank the Liberals will make some readers smile and others grit their teeth, but everyone who reads it will have a new appreciation for the way progressive ideals have shaped, and continue to shape, our country.”
— President Bill Clinton

“What is liberalism really? And why has it been demonized by some? Alan Colmes wants a kinder, gentler debate, and this book provides an interesting pathway to achieve that.”
— Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly

“In this partisan climate, Alan Colmes achieves something excep-tional. In Thank the Liberals, he provides an unabashed defense of liberal ideology, while reminding us that at the end of the day we are all Americans.”
— Congressman Dennis Kucinich

“I’m pretty sure that if you’re a conservative, you didn’t buy Alan Colmes’ book on purpose! And if you’re a liberal, you prob-ably wouldn’t be interested in what I would say about it. But Alan is a liberal I like, not because we agree on anything, but be-cause he actually thinks through his viewpoints and can carry on an intense, but grown-up discussion with people whose views he thinks are Neanderthalesque—like mine! Conservatives shouldread this book to find out what the more intelligent and reasonable element of the ‘other side’ really believes, and liberals ought to read it because Alan isn’t as crazy as the other liberals writing books and it will keep them busy for a while!”
— Mike Huckabee

“In Thank the Liberals, my good friend Alan Colmes identifies one of the most important, yet frequently overlooked, truths in this country: that we are all connected. In an age dominated by fearful little men who try to keep us apart, it’s inspiring to see Alan continue to stand tall on the be-lief that as a nation, our best ideas and highest notes are always going to be found on our common ground. Isolation and separation are making this country sick, and if we are going to cure it, we need voices like Alan’s to remind us of what we can accomplish when we work together.”
— Russell Simmons

“Alan Colmes has always been a gentleman and a friend, and admirably, always willing to debate ideas rather than lapsing into partisan talking points. As a result, I have always considered him a Liberal rather than just a Democrat. In Thank the Liberals, Alan lays out the modern progressive viewpoint in a clear and concise 200 pages. While I disagree with his overall conclusion that the state is a benign force in American life, I also find areas where our opinions overlap. Libertarians and conservatives used to be called ‘classical liberals,’ and it is vitally important that we have an honest debate with modern liberals. Thank the Liberals helps advance that debate.”
— Congressman Ron Paul

“I thank Alan Colmes for showing us in his book that the core of our being is already liberal. Irrespective of our political preference, we all seek equality, justice, and freedom. Read this book and affirm your own truth.”
— Deepak Chopra

“With one word change, this would be a great book. Just change Liberals to Conservatives.”
— Ann Coulter

“Alan Colmes has been on the front lines of progressive values for many years. This book brilliantly captures how an organized and motivated citizenry has pushed our society toward higher and higher levels of justice, tolerance, and peace. And, he eloquently reminds us of our responsibility to carry that torch in order to reduce suffering in our world.”
— Congressman Tim Ryan
