A workman-like book that does a thorough job of summarizing where we are today and what must change. My rating is an average of 4 stars for the message and 2 stars (i.e., "it was OK") for the presentation. I thought DeMint's The Great Awakening was more interesting in a general sense. This book's strongest point is that it is pretty comprehensive in ticking off each area that needs attention. Each chapter presents a summary of points to aid the reader in communicating to his/her friends what is ...more
Jim DeMint is a great senator. Although I do not agree with him on every point he seems to have common sense and that, I can work with.

This book is very insightful and suggestive in regard to what the Republican party [values] used to be, and what it is today. This is not a typical book on a Republican vs. Democrat or vice versa. Instead, DeMint points out his political beliefs in the entire political spectrum, as well as calling on Republicans (and Democrats) who favor big-government and increase on spending. From Bush to Obama, Jim DeMint pinpoints the rights and wrongs of the two Presidents. He also sets the record straight ...more
