Books:

Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle. Note:  Senator Flake is a pseudo-Conservative and a Republican In Name Only (RINO.)

The career-entrenched RINOs in Congress are currently squandering the opportunity of the majority that was handed to them in the last election. They have no intention of “draining the Swamp.”  They are are, in fact, the Swamp Creatures.
