The author isn't likely to have made many friends with this book, but I found it to be a resounding call to arms which shouldn't be ignored.

Clearly written for Republicans and conservatives, moderates and apologists will likely find this book quite distasteful. What the author does is sound a wake-up call and implores us (the readers) to stop ignoring the left and start duplicating their success using their own tactics.

The game plan calls for Republicans to start using the courts to push back the liberal agenda even though the right usually stands for rule of law and a strong belief in the Constitution as written. His argument makes sense. If liberals fault us for using their own judicial judgments against them they look like complete hypocrites. If we are successful we can eventually regain enough of a stronghold to pass judgments (or laws that won't be overturned by the courts) that will more closely align with our base beliefs. In fact, win enough court cases and the liberals will likely look to pass these laws on their own to help "level the playing field." It's a win/win for us.

I only wish we had representatives and supporters strong enough and brave enough to begin enacting the authors blueprint. Who knows, maybe now with the Tea Party becoming stronger that's exactly what will happen... ( )

ATTENTION, CONSERVATIVES

Forget everything you think you know about the courts—and arm yourselves with this brand-new, urgently needed battle plan to defeat the Left’s legal assault on America.

How to Bring the Reagan Revolution to America's Courts . . . FINALLY

With the Harriet Miers fiasco a distant memory and John Roberts and Samuel Alito sitting on the Supreme Court, conservatives can finally stop worrying about the courts, right?

Wrong. Dead wrong.

America’s courts, legal culture, and law schools remain solidly in the Left’s camp. Decades of liberal legal precedents fill volumes of law tomes. Absent a sweeping change—precisely what bestselling author Mark W. Smith calls for in Disrobed—liberals will ruthlessly exploit their dominant position in the law to continue advancing their radical agenda, as they have for the past seventy years.

Smith, a nationally recognized attorney, lays out an aggressive new battle plan to thwart the liberal assault on America by turning the courts into allies of the conservative movement. Be warned, Disrobed is not for the fainthearted. Smith implores conservatives: Toss out practically everything you think you know about courts, judges, and American law—because it’s naive, anachronistic, and self-defeating.

Fearlessly challenging the conventional conservative wisdom, Disrobed reveals:

• Why conservatives must immediately embrace—not decry—judicial activism

• A bold new model for finding strong conservative judges—behold the “Judicial Reagan”

• Why litmus tests, so often vilified, represent the only way to pick reliable conservative judges

• How to get sitting judges to “evolve” (finally!) to the right

• How the Right can sue more to advance the conservative agenda—on guns, taxes, immigration, the right to life, you name it

• How conservatives can turn liberals’ favorite court rulings against them

• The hard truth that who wins in the courts often depends more on politics and ideology than on the rule of law

Smith reminds us that courts, judges, and lawyers need not be enemies of the Right, and can even serve as valuable allies in the war against liberalism. But as his groundbreaking book shows, conservatives must force this change by taking swift action. Disrobed issues a call to arms to all conservatives, revealing that the courts are far too important to be left to the devices of academics, lawyers, and politicians.

“Conservatives,” Smith writes, “must accept—and adapt our strategies to—the reality of the modern law, even when the truth is uncomfortable. Otherwise the conservative political agenda and the American way of life will keep getting destroyed—legal case by legal case—in the courts.”
