"With its bold ideas, this book is sure to shake up the power structure in Washington-which is what we expect (and love) about Jim DeMint. He is listening to the heartbeat of America: hard work, active faith, and local control drive real solutions. These stories will surprise and inspire you. "―Star Parker, nationally syndicated columnist and political commentator

He opines that the irresistible "cashing in" by regulators or staffs is not sinister, it's merely "human nature" for them to aspire to eventually becoming a high paid lobbyist for one that he/she now helps regulate. He makes a compelling case that the successful and increasing "small platoons" can reverse the tide of big government which is the key to minimizing special interest legislation. I believe he also means we need to help get the fiscally conservative republicans and democrats to take note and get to the polls in November. I happen to agree, so I went back to the book store; bought four more copies to give to family or friends and then one more from Amazon so I could post my review.
Being from his hometown of Greenville, as one might suspect, I've supported Jim since he entered politics. He's much younger than me so I can't claim to know him well but we've met and he is clearly not another equivocating politician---he's an intelligent person of character that has proven he can not be bought! The only place I'd rather see him than at The Heritage Foundation in the future is in the White House in 2016.

This book documents many of the problems in our country today and it provides supporting evidence for the claim that we need to fall in love with America again. DeMint fails, however, in the area of providing practical ways for us to get out from under the arm of the government. For instance, he is not completely consistent in the area of education. He does advocate homeschooling as an alternative to government schools but he also advocates school vouchers. With school vouchers, the government is still involved with education from a monetary standpoint and will dictate to a point how the money will be spent.
Love is not a strategy but an affection and to simply love something will not fix anything. Love is vital and the fulfillment of the law but it is not a law in itself or a plan to rescue America from an overreaching government. To do this will require something more substantial. This book was beneficial due to its emphasis on the people of America and decentralization but it should be read with caution because of its failure to provide a concrete path to restoring America.
