The Democrats and especially our nation's CEO should take the time to read this book as it expresses why millions of people risk their lives on a daily basis to come to this great land of opportunity. To this day there is no mass exodus to Mexico, Canada, or any other country yet immigrants from around the world come to America in hopes of a better life and usually they are lucky enough to experience this. Newt Gingrich explains this in basis English which even Congress members could understand!
I believe we must keep believing (and teaching to our children) that democracy is the best form of government - ' by the people and for the people!'. As Winston Churchill quoted, " Democracy is the worst possible form of government, except for all the other forms that have been tried!"
This just shows what an intelligent, informed historian and American Newt Gingrich is. He knows how to write a book as well as he speaks, making it interesting and informative while giving in depth facts regarding his writing. I am so glad we bought this and would recommend it to everyone out there who is proud to be an American and/or those who want their children to learn about this wonderful country in which we are blessed to be born and live.
This is an excellent book about our country, its founding, and its history since the beginning of the nation. Newt is well informed about all of our history and has great command of the founding father's basis for our Constitution and governance. We are not heading in the direction of our founders' guiding principals and, on the contrary, are moving away from freedom and towards central government control. Unfortunately, the book was written to influence the 2012 election, but was not understood or read by a sufficient number of voters. Consequently, Newt's advice was not followed and the country has gone down a different path. The voters need to change the direction in the next election!
If you appreciate knowing the thoughts, ideas and actions which inspired our forefather's to act the way they did and why, to achieve our great nation - then this is a MUST READ for you! It should be required reading for any publically elected politician prior to taking office!
