Publisher Description

Now, do not misunderstand me, America is great.

But we are fed up with being over-taxed and over-regulated. We are tired of being told how much salt to put on our food, what kind of cars we can drive, what kinds of guns we can own, what kind of prayers we are allowed to say and where we can say them, what we are allowed to do to elect political candidates, what kind of energy we can use, what doctor we can see. What kind of nation are we becoming? I fear it's the very kind the Colonists fought against.

But perhaps most of all, we are fed up because deep down we know how great America has always been, how many great things the people do in spite of their government, and how great the nation can be in the future if government will just get out of the way.

Our fight is clear. We must step up and retake the reins of our government from a Washington establishment that has abused our trust. We must empower states to fight for our beliefs, elect only leaders who are on our team, set out to remind our fellow Americans why liberty is guaranteed in the Constitution, and take concrete steps to take back our country. The American people have never sat idle when liberty's trumpet sounds the call to battle -- and today that battle is for the soul of America.

Very insightful

Contrary to other reviews, this book does not go farther. Too bad he doesn't mention John Edwards or Anthony Weiner or Charlie Rengle or so many of the other parasites that, for some unknown reason, keep getting reelected! How about mentioning some of the many, many perks that our elected officials gave themselves without asking the people if it was ok? Ask why so many of the recent waivers of Obamacare have been granted to companies in Nancy Pelosi

Governor Perry - Simply Brilliant

I am a native Texan, served in the USAF for 30+ years, and I love the US Constitution. This book demonstrates with clarity what is wrong with our country today and clearly articulates what needs to be done to fix it. I only hope that others will take Governor Perry's roadmap to heart and that this book will become the catalyst for change.

This book brought home the reasons Texas prospers through good times and bad because our Governor is not afraid to make a hard choice or stand up to the D.C. crowd. It also gave me a lot of insights into why we are fairings so well even now.

Based on this book, I am sending letters to my Congressman and Senators and demand that they jump on board with Governor Perry's recommendations or they can be assured my money and my vote will go to those with the courage to change the D.C. parasitic.

Staying the course should no longer be an option because our Cyrene road ahead is a federal government that will most certainly self-implode, it is simply a question of when. At last, here are some specific things we can do to avoid what is a certain collapse of our way of life.

Finally, this book was very well written, a compelling read - it was very hard to put this book down because it was so direct and insightful.
