In this era of ever-growing, more distant, unresponsive government―and politicians of both parties who do not walk their talk―retired California State Senator H. L. (Bill) Richardson’s book is a strong tonic. He warns; however, his words are not for the faint of heart: as Finley Peter Dunne once said, “Politics ain’t beanbag.” He spells out in a series of lessons how his often-hard-pressed conservative minority was able to win victory after victory on issues like the death penalty, gun control, and removing liberal judges. “The central theme of this book is the methodology both sides use. Being ‘right’ is not enough,” he cautions.

About the Author:

H. L. “Bill” Richardson is a twenty-two-year veteran of the California State Senate. Most of those years were served in leadership. Six times he received Legislator of the Year awards from Christian and Sportsman organizations. Richardson has focused his extensive political career on the preservation and protection of Second Amendment rights. He is Founder and Chairman of the Board of Gun Owners of California and Gun Owners of America. Membership in these organizations exceeds 200,000. His book Confrontational Politics is used by organizations and individuals as a textbook on how to defeat the Left.

An active hunter and outdoorsman, Richardson remains involved in state and national politics, and is a popular speaker. He continues to provide a colorful media commentary on a host of issues. He has written for numerous national publications, and is the author of two successful humorous political books, Slightly to the Right and What Makes you Think We Read the Bills? The latter is used as a textbook in political science classes throughout California. H. L. Richardson and his wife, Barbara, have three children and seven grandchildren and reside in the Sacramento area.

Review:

Your contributions to the State of California through the sixteen years you’ve served in the state are immeasurable. I know how much I counted on you when I was Governor.
Ronald Reagan, March 1983

Bill Richardson showed conservatives how to be principled without being dogmatic, informative without being burdensome, [and] even more important, he equipped a whole generation of young conservatives to pick up the load and follow in his footsteps.
Congressman Dana Rohrabacher

There can be no compromises with the Left. We are ideologically at opposite ends of the spectrum with no arbitration possible. Either they win or we do. They will run the government or we will. That’s the only choice open to either of us. They know it―shouldn’t we?

That, in a nutshell, is Confrontational Politics.
Mike Gray, (www.stkarnick.com)
