U.S. Representative Thaddeus McCotter has been called an iconoclastic conservative, and with good reason: he was once the lead guitarist and composer for a 'no hair' rock band of no fixed appeal. McCotter, whose Washington office has a picture of Lennon over his desk (the Beatle, not the Bolshevik), moves seamlessly from Russell Kirk to rock 'n' roll and from the U.S. House to Animal House in his first book, "Seize Freedom!" "Seize Freedom!" is a spirited cry for sanity amidst an insane age in the tradition of Demosthenes' plea - In 'God's name, I beg of you to think!' - McCotter, the chair of the Republican House Policy Committee, examines the quartet of generational challenges confronting Americans in our chaotic, ideologically charged times and charts the path of truth and renewal for America's global generation. Waggish, sagacious, and utterly conservative, "Seize Freedom!" shows why Thaddeus McCotter is a regularly suffered guest of Fox News, CNN, and "The Dennis Miller Show", among many other media outlets.
Thaddeus G. McCotter is the U.S. representative for Michigan's Eleventh District. He has written for the American Spectator, the Detroit News, Human Events, and Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood, among numerous publications and splenetic websites. McCotter, who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Detroit and earned his J.D. from the University of Detroit Law School, lives in his hometown of Livonia, Michigan, with his wife, their three children, and his Stratocaster.
