The Patriot’s Toolbox

The fourth edition of The Patriot’s Toolbox was released in late 2017. It addresses 10 key issues for America’s future, and 10 principles for each of those issues every liberty-loving American needs to understand.

In short, the book offers “an agenda for incumbent office holders, a platform for candidates for public office, and a report card for civic and business leaders and journalists following the policy moves of the Trump administration, Congress, and state lawmakers.”

Coauthored and edited by Herbert Walberg, Ph.D. and Joseph L. Bast, with contributions from 18 other distinguished policy experts, the book covers ten of the most important topics being debated today:

  1. Health Care
  2. Energy and Environment
  3. Elementary and Secondary Education
  4. Higher Education
  5. Privatization
  6. Firearms
  7. Telecommunications
  8. State Fiscal Policy
  9. Federal Tax Policy
  10. Constitutional Reform

Nearly 13,000 complimentary copies of the book were sent in early November to influential audiences across the country, including every state elected official and member of Congress, thousands of civic and business leaders, and the media. More than 100,000 copies of the first three editions of The Patriot’s Toolbox were distributed since 2010, making it one of the most widely circulated and influential books on public policy in the United States. The new edition is completely rewritten and thoroughly updated to reflect the events of 2016 and so far in 2017.
