In his new role as president
and CEO of The Heritage Foundation, Jim DeMint has travelled the country
talking to Americans about how to return to our founding principles and restore
and protect our economy and culture for future generations. He has realized that
he—and all of us as fellow citizens—must fall in love with America again.
In this audiobook, DeMint
introduces Americans all across the country who are working towards the same
goal. We see example after example of Americans coming together locally in what
DeMint calls the “little platoons”—the families, churches, communities, and
voluntary organizations succeeding on the model that smaller is better. They
are the hands-on citizens who make America the exceptional, caring, and can-do
country it has always been.
DeMint illustrates why each
of us—regardless of political party, age, race, religion, or ethnicity—must
rediscover the power we represent. The country’s future is at risk, not just
because of constant pressure from “the Bigs” (big government, big banks, big
labor, big Wall Street cronies …), but because so many of us fear that it is
too late to solve problems so huge and seemingly intractable. Jim DeMint is
here to reassure us that this is not true.
In riveting yet plainspoken
style, he tells real-life success stories and affirms the compelling truth that
conservative ideas are really American ideas, and they must guide us as we turn
our institutions upside-down, taking them from the top-down centrally-controlled
bureaucracies they have become back to the bottom-up democratic framework the
Through this heartfelt,
fascinating, and inspiring look inside the America of both yesterday and today,
and the everyday citizens who are working tirelessly and selflessly to insure
its future fulfills the promise of its beginnings, Jim DeMint is beckoning us
to join him on one of the most meaningful and momentous journeys we have ever
undertaken together: falling in love with America again. Download and start listening now!
