Is it wrong to like Underdogs?
If you're like me, you've felt that urge to root for the underdog; the little guy.  But, just because we can love the underdog, does that mean we should automatically hate the overdog-or those who have more power?  For millions of people, the answer is yes.  And that's bad news for America.  Because America, for now, is the world's most powerful nation-the world's biggest overdog.  That’s what Underdogma is about: how America’s enemies use your love for the underdog to trash American power-and what you can do to stop them.

Are you saying that America can do no wrong?
Of course not.  America is not perfect. 

Some Americans have problems with American policies and still love America at the same time, like Tea Partiers.  Other people have problems with American policies and leap to “America is the real terrorist.”  
Just because America is strong, doesn’t make it wrong.  And just because America’s enemies are les strong, doesn’t make them right.

Deciding “right” and “wrong” based on whichever side has less or more power: that’s called “Underdogma.” 

Deciding between “right” and “wrong” based on facts: that’s called “reason.”

Is this a Tea Party book?
I'm blessed that so many people in the Tea Party movement-across America-have embraced Underdogma.  Because Underdogma embraces American Exceptionalism.  Now, even though Jenny Beth Martin (Co-Founder and National Coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots) has called Underdogma “The first great Tea Party book,” and even though lots of Tea Partiers love it, this is not a book strictly about the Tea Party movement.
