Jon discusses ideas.....he gives the reader a lot to think over especially if they are liberal and he still finds a lot of common ground.

Well, Jon sets the record straight in an easy-to-read, straightforward style.

Format: Paperback
There are many weighty tomes about conservatism that trace its roots back to a bunch of crotchety old European guys. I'm sure they are wonderful and that a historic look at conservatism is a useful thing for some. But what do you say when someone asks you "Why are you a conservative?". It doesn't do much to say that Burke and Kirk and a bunch of other guys said its a good idea. Not gonna win too many converts or justify your beliefs to a skeptic. This book is perfect for that.

Whether its a teenager whose eyes you want to open, a disillusioned independent wondering if he can afford to dabble in Democrats, or somebody who has ignored politics but thinks we are on the wrong path, this book works as a perfect way to cut to the chase. It will even entertain those already on board with reminders of how conservatism isn't just a political ideology, it's a way of living your life. It reminds us of all the virtues and morals and ethics that combined inform, or ought to inform, all of our decisions.

I bet you can think of three or four people who could benefit from a book like this. It has a light touch, is not overly judgmental and could actually attract people to conservatism.

This book is a must read for intelligent conservatives, liberals, and independents, because it focuses on the issues and ideas of both political points of view without the usual finger pointing, name calling, and spin that turns off all but the most ardent supporters of the far left or right. Every conservative should read this insightful book to find why American exceptionalism and values are supported by most Americans, and why liberals will discover that conservatism isn't what it's made to be by other liberals and most of the media. This book will help Americans have an honest dialogue about the principles, policies, and issues that divide and unite us. Hopefully, this book will help us all put our country ahead of unproductive partisan bickering.

A great book !!!

Gut Feeling by Jon Friesch was a breath of fresh air....a no nonsense approach to the subject of conservatism.
Jon takes the subject of conservatism and dilutes it down to everyday subjects..honor, racism, tough love, charity, unions, and lazy versus helpless to name just a few. He has no party affiliation...no angry diatribes...just common sense.
One of his favorite quotes is one by Eleanor Roosevelt...and now my favorite too....
"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; and small minds discuss people". Jon discusses ideas.....he gives the reader a lot to think over especially if they are liberal and he still finds a lot of common ground. We really are not all that different .

I enjoyed this book for many reasons, the most important being that Jon was able to put the conservative view point on most topics into an entertaining, yet educational format. It was a quick, entertaining read, which does not take away from the importance of any of the topics. I found it personally refreshing to know that there was someone else out there who felt he needed his conservative view point heard, rather than hidden.
I also liked this book because it taught me to be a more critical thinker when approaching topics and I am better able to slow down and discuss ideas in a more rational, rather than emotional manner. I find myself looking at the whole person and his/her argument instead of immediately forming my, of course right (ha,ha), conservative opinion.
I have been recommending this to others who want to feel like there is a voice for their opinions out there.

My gut feeling tells me there are lots of folks across America that think they're liberals because of a strong opinion on a particular issue championed by liberals...and because liberals are so vocal in telling us all what conservatives think. Well, Jon sets the record straight in an easy-to-read, straightforward style. His book is a much needed breath of fresh air for most of us caught in the middle between the two political extremes: a simple, non-sensationalizing review of the differences in points of view between liberals and conservatives on a variety of issues with (finally!) a non-judgmental explanation of the conservative view. If you've ever felt that liberalism plays on your heartstrings, but rarely seems to hold up under the closer scrutiny of logic, historical fact, or the tendencies of human nature, you may just be a conservative! Jon's book will help you bridge the gap.

Oh, that I had the talent of this man!!! such a simple principle...and so much shorter than Atlas Shrugged which I re read last year. This is written in such simple language, with such deep thought presented so all should be able to learn from it. I ordered one, and have so many notations and underlines, that I ordered two more to give as gifts, and perhaps people who share those, will convince everyone to read this wonderfully written, intellegent, and easy to understand book. I think it could have many answers for many of the questions in the minds of many people at this time and in my case, the feelings of "what is happening to my world?" I recommend it to all...and to all the friends of all. Marilynn K. Short
