Michael Savage is one of the most influential conservative voices in America. His groundbreaking radio show, The Savage Nation, is the third-largest program in the country with over 10 million listeners. His straight talk about radical Islam was deemed so offensive by politically correct censors that he was banned from entering the United Kingdom in 2009. A pioneer in ethnobotanical research, Dr. Savage has masters degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology and a Ph.D. in epidemiology and nutrition sciences from the University of California, Berkeley. Bestselling author of 28 books, his new release is Train Tracks: Family Stories for the Holidays (William Morrow, Nov. 6).

But thats not freedom, is it? Thats not even anarchy. What it is, is simple conformity. Thats all it really is.
