I was born a democrat, son of a policeman in Boston. Now a registered Independent, I was one of the Tea Party guys from the early days who helped to get Scott Brown to take over the "Kennedy Seat" in Mass. Enough about me.
Gingrich and Haley do a very credible job in this book providing a historically sound portrayal of the very early days of the English settlement of the east coast of the North American continent. They then tie some of the experiences of the early settlers into the development of an American Ethos that has become what differentiates us from many people around the world. There are several words that aptly describe the American character that the authors convey: indefatigable... optimistic...determined... and charitable. A look at our darkest hours over the years will find that these are the traits that have always not just gotten us through, but allowed us to PROSPER when conventional wisdom said "these guys are done".
(Having lived abroad for 5 of the past 15 years, I can tell you that these aren't usually the first words that come to mind when other cultures are asked for their impressions of us. But with some dogged persistence, the ethnocentrism embraced by virtually all cultures starts to wear a bit thin, and you start to hear that other cultures are, indeed, struck by America's amazing ability to produce people en mass with the above tendencies. )
To net it out... this book is a call to action. It identifies exactly what the issues are with our "radical secular" judiciary, with the progressive movement in general, and lays out specific things we can all do to start taking our country back. 2012 is a critical year.

The book, is a rally cry as well that America is indeed an exceptional nation, in the best sense of that word exceptional. Gingrich, an historian with a Ph.D. long before he was a member of Congress presents a clear, concise understanding of American history, conveying the message that if we are to chart a better future, we first must understand our past and how we arrived where we are now. Gingrich presents us with a fundamental question and analysis. Historians can never argue with the fact that the 20th century was indeed "the American Century," but the challenge Gingrich presents in this book is how to insure that our grandchildren can some day say that the 21st century was "The American Century" as well. This is not a candidate thinking just a few months ahead to winning a nomination, this is a man, with a sense of history, who is asking to look generations ahead and insure that our grandchildren have an America that is secure, prosperous and still a global leader.Read more ›
