Plano, TX (PRWEB) February 20, 2012
Texas Independent Eric Hines publishes a timely manifesto to address Americans. According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans’ political ideology as of January 2012 looks similar to 2009 and 2010, with 40% of Americans identifying themselves as "Conservative," 35% "Moderate," and 21% "Liberal." In the third straight year that conservatives significantly outnumber both moderates and liberals separately, Hines follows the lead of great conservative political thinkers like William F. Buckley, Jr. and Russell Kirk, and publishes his own philosophical and political ideals in A Conservative’s Manifesto.
“A Conservative’s Manifesto offers a description of the principles of modern conservatism,” says Hines. “The present political climate is one that is of a big and growing government that increasingly asserts its right and its obligation to control, in increasing detail, the decisions of ordinary Americans. It is necessary to discuss these conservative principles in an effort to focus our thoughts as we struggle to regain control over our lives and to rein in that overbearing government. It lays out, in so many words, a set of (modern) Conservative principles that are tied back to the 18th Century Liberal principles of our nation’s Founders.”
Seen through the eyes of an ordinary American detached from any political profession, readers will find the political view in this book both a good reference and a lens through which to see the realities of America’s present-day politics. A Conservative’s Manifesto is indeed a timely book that conservatives,” “liberals,” and everyone else in between can learn from.

About the Author
Eric Hines is an Air Force veteran, project manager, and systems engineer living in North Texas. He is not a professional politician, but a reasonably well-educated citizen who has taken the time to study not just where Americans are, but where we came from and how we got here today. His principles are developed by a person more typical of what an American is than are formally-credentialed professionals, who he believes are too far removed from ordinary Americans (if only by Americans' perceptions of Ph.D.s or J.D.s).
