BOOK REVIEW: Dissent, The Highest Form of Patriotism

To read Dissent: The Highest Form of Patriotism is to know everything about its author, Dr. Rich Swier, a former combat veteran, TV and radio host, publisher of the popular political website, and a proud, rock-ribbed conservative.

Clearly inspired by the avalanche of what he considers the anti-American, anti-Constitution, and also radical and racist policies of the Democrat’s leftist/liberal/progressive assault on our country—not starting but flourishing during the Obama years and now continuing at warp speed in the Biden years—Dr. Swier spells out, in 46 scrupulously documented chapters, not only the great destruction that has been wrought but what We the People can do about it.

This reader-friendly book gives every patriot the intellectual ammunition needed to expose the lies and myths that the Left and their enablers in the corrupt media have foisted on a largely stunned American populace…and just in time for the electorate to be as informed as possible for the upcoming 2024 presidential election.

Truly an urgent must-read!


Dr. Rich is a “conservative with a conscience.” He believes that “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” His idol is former Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater. Goldwater was a true conservative who wrote this in his book “The Conscience of a Conservative“:

“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ ‘interests,’ I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”

Dr. Rich is inspired by the words of African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman Frederick Douglass, “I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.”

Dr. Rich is dedicated to contesting the uncontested absurdities.
