Publisher's Summary

Blaze TV and top radio host Dana Loesch explains that the biggest political problem today is that the people who run this country have no idea what life is really like for ordinary Americans. In fact, they have contempt for the very people they claim to represent.
When the owners of a small pizza parlor in Indiana were asked by the local press whether they would ever cater a gay wedding, they said no, citing their personal religious beliefs. The internet responded with immediate outrage, posting death threats and vicious online reviews, and forcing them to shut down. All for expressing a personal opinion rooted in faith, in response to a completely hypothetical question. A new front in the culture war had been opened.
When the owners of the pizza parlor told Dana Loesch on a Blaze TV interview that they might never reopen, Loesch started a fundraising campaign. Hundreds of thousands of dollars quickly poured in to support them. The people donating weren't taking a stand against gay rights; they just believed that a random mom-and-pop shop shouldn't be run out of business because media and political elites on both coasts caricature and vilify rural Americans.
Most of the problems with our country today can be traced to a very simple cause - the growing disconnect between the government and media elites and the rest of us, the old-fashioned, hard-working, God-fearing Americans who are proud to live in middle America. As Loesch explains, too many people getting on their high horse about Wal-Mart have never shopped in one. Protesters outraged at small town cops have never been helped by one. Environmentalists who claim to want to protect the spotted owl have never been in the woods with one. Atheists who attack committed Christians have never sat in a pew with one.
Loesch doesn't take aims solely at the Democrats; some Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail have also forgotten what life is like for the people back home. While these so-called leaders may have forgotten the people in coal towns and farming communities, the voters in those communities haven't forgotten Washington's betrayals. And it will show in 2016.
As one of the most powerful and recognizable voices on talk radio today, Dana Loesch is leading a revolution of America's new Silent Majority.

An Orgy of Invectives—Spewing Bias

This is going to ruffle some feathers, though someone should say it. Humans must rise above our hatred of social progress. This book is a cookbook for building the Trump empire, and that's not an improvement for humanity. I'm also disgusted that so many consider this 5-star material, but please, read those reviews too. They're actually... quite informative.

I grew up and have lived most of my life in this fabled "Flyover Nation" (Kansas) as a dedicated fundamentalist Christian. But, the seeds that matured me to my new self came from elsewhere in the world. I woke up some four years ago thanks to others that were willing to say the hard things against the thinking that drives people like Dana. Yes, I'm one of those Christians turned Atheists... a... reprobate.

But, I'm not a rich cocktail-drinking elitist liberal coastal snob, and neither am I viral rage-addicted vampire. No, I'm just a human that realized my religion, philosophy, and science were all wrong. And I adjusted as required. Here's the rub for religion (Dana included): I didn't get bitter and lose my morals, but rather, I doffed religion and its trappings to find myself in a real world with real needs. This was an awakening. Dana is really afraid to address this part though. Religion has failed (and always will) to answer the realities of humanity. Instead of addressing what is forcing society to adapt to its real human issues, she endorses doubling-down in traditionalism and nationalism. Fighting harder against giving to those in need only results in more lives ruined... while the "righteous" keep their strongholds as they were in ye olden dayes with G'ma and G'pa.

Fellow Flyovers, while you're praying against the powers of the "darkness of this world", I'll be out there, actually making a difference to the hurting and the needy. Non-flyovers, can you truly say the difference is indistinguishable?

The trouble with today's society is not—as Dana and the Flyovers would have you believe—the loss of traditionalism. It is that so few are listening to ideas that might enlighten their error. The point is, I was wrong but worked through it. Nobody forced me to "give myself over to the devil"... and I don't hate "God"—though I am truly saddened by how such a fictitious concept hobbles otherwise able minds. We just don't need those training wheels any more.

Dana is the old guard of things we've since found false. Let's look to reality for how to proceed, but please don't support voices like this. As soon as my review is posted, I'm returning this book... in protest. Can you imagine what might happen if more did this?

Interesting and worthwhile book!

While I do not agree with Dana Loesch on everything, her descriptions of flyover country and the values of the majority of people who live there are dead right. Her point that coastal elites do not understand those people is equally correct. Flyover Nation is a very worthwhile book. Narration is outstanding.
