From the Inside Flap

America on the Brink

The Obama administration is conspiring to transform America. They want to remake our America—of free enterprise, faith, and personal freedom—into their America—of endless bureaucracy, secularism, and state control—despite overwhelming opposition from the American people.How is this possible? How has the Obama team succeeded in adopting widely despised policies like the massive stimulus bill and the healthcare takeover? How could such a radical president and his congressional leaders get elected and then take a center-right country in a socialist direction bitterly opposed by most Americans? Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has the answer: the Left have built a secular-socialist machine out of corruption, lust for power, and sheer ruthlessness, and are using it to steamroll over the will of the people. In this book, Gingrich reveals:

* How the secular-socialist machine gained power through deception and outright lies
* How the machine shuts the American people out of the legislative process
* Why some of our most powerful leaders seek to banish religion from public life
* How the machine uses taxpayer money to pay off its supporters and punish its opponents
* How we can replace, not reform, Obama’s socialist programs

Exposing the mortal threat now facing America, To Save America offers concrete strategies for dismantling the machine and replacing it with policies and institutions that work. But we must act fast, Gingrich warns, or our children will inherit a secular, socialist America transformed beyond recognition.

From the Back Cover

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
—Ronald Reagan

“The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”
—George Washington

“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.”
—Samuel Adams

“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.”
—Daniel Webster

Format: Hardcover
Gingrich's title for this book has two meanings. The first is "To Save America" from the current reckless and destructive set of policies the Obama administration is cramming through Congress. Our national spending is out of control, the private sector is withering, the public sector (and all its bureaucratic costs) are exploding, and our national sovereignty is being weakened as we are becoming more subject to unelected and undemocratic international agreements and regulatory bodies.

The second meaning flows from the direction Obama is taking to "fundamentally transform" the nation. Obama and Congress cannot make these transformations Constitutionally, so they simply wave their arms and ignore our nation's history, the basis of our government, and push through their Leftist agenda with wild and ridiculous claims about this or that clause in the Constitution without any regard to what was actually meant by the founders and framers of our government. They torture the words until they confess that the Feds can now make each of us buy a health insurance policy they deem proper for us. What's next? Telling us what groceries we can or can't buy so we will not incur extra health care costs? What cars we can own and when we can drive them to avoid health care costs from accidents?

Gingrich lays out his arguments in 24 short and clearly written chapters. This book is the most explicit and direct argument I have seen him make about what is wrong about the Obama agenda and the direction the Progressives are moving the country. He lays out an argument about what America has been and who we are as a people and compares that to what he calls the "Secular-Socialist Machine" (and what he means by that term - don't let others define it for you - read the chapter).

I do a fair amount of driving and enjoy having audiobooks to listen to during that time. Newt Gingrich is very articulate and brings enormous insight and knowledge to many topics and I am always on the lookout for his latest speeches and books. I couldn't wait for this one and bypassed the hard-copy to grab the audiobook which said it is read by Newt. Well - it is not read by him. He reads the chapter titles and his wife reads the book in a monotone passionless voice so it sounds like a textbook. The topics and information are great, with the normal abundance of examples to illustrate his points. However, the emotion and delivery that Newt would have brought to this as an audiobook is not there so it doesn't hold your attention at all. This isn't Rocky stumbling through Green Eggs and Ham when he was reading aloud to Talia Shire in a coma - Calista's voice is clear and articulate. But, the pace never changes, the tone stays the same, the volume never increases or falls, sacasism is delivered in the same bland manner as the rest of the book and loses its impact. It's probably even worse to have Newt jump in every 10 minutes and announce a new chapter heading as it reminds you that the whole book is his words and you're not hearing him deliver them. I'll have to purchase the hard copy as there is no way I'll survive the audiobook delivery but the content is very good so far. I cannot even give this to non-political friends because while they may have listened to Newt's voice, they'll never even finish 20 minutes of this version.

Format: Hardcover
While the mass media has been enamored with President Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress, they have been lacking in their journalistic duties by not calling into question the detrimental policies that have been passed only to endanger the future of America. However, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich takes the Obama Administration to task in his latest book, "To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine."

From the outset, Gingrich astutely explains the threats posed to individual liberties and limited government by President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. As the three leaders of the secular-socialist machine, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are unilaterally pushing through legislation such as health care reform and government bailouts, which Gingrich and fellow experts from organizations such as the Center for Health Transformation argue will overburden taxpayers, kill jobs, and amass ineffective bureaucracy upon individuals. Gingrich breaks it down for the reader in common sense language that the Left are stripping away traditional America with its limited government, free markets, and religious principles and replacing it with big government policies favoring unions and other ideologues. Through chapters proposing policy reforms on health care, energy, green conservatism, and education, Gingrich convincingly details how America can regain its prominence in the world and how the individual can triumph over the encroachment of big government.

Although to readers who may deem Gingrich a partisan conservative, he acknowledges encouraging initiatives from across the aisle. For instance, Gingrich lauds First Lady Michelle Obama for her campaign against obesity in children.
