Publisher's Summary

The United States - the world's great bastion of freedom - is sliding toward socialism. High-profile bailouts and a stimulus bill have toppled the walls between government and private sectors. Federal control now extends in various ways to education, health care, financial markets, real estate, businesses, and religion. And as out-of-control government spending and debt increase, America is drained of the economic and political strength its people fought for and worked so hard to achieve. But it isn't too late to save the land of the free.Saving Freedom is U.S. Senator Jim DeMint's firsthand account of the unsettling socialist shift, backed by a complete action plan to reclaim America's freedom based on legislation that would reduce debt, fix Social Security, and provide a tax credit for every family. He also emphasizes reversing America's cultural decline by restoring a strong spirit of faith, family, and freedom.

What the Critics Say

"Saving Freedom is a new Declaration of Independence, a call for the American people to reclaim America. Jim DeMint's passion for the cause of individual liberty and personal responsibility is evident in this manifesto. It needs to be read - and acted upon - by every citizen of this republic." (Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives)

C- but real close to being a D

Demint is my senator. I have been pleased with his record as senator and feel we need more conservatives in office. Now, what do I think of the book?
It begins with a bitter tone and Demint has nothing good to say about anybody. It picks up after a while and the history of socialism in the US is interesting. Demint tends to oversimplify many social issues and some of his logic just doesn't add up. He provides some interesting stories about himself and blends them in well with the subject matter.
He references everyone from the three little pigs to Sir Thomas Aquinas. Enduring a complete retelling of the plot to It's a Wonderful Life and The Ginger Bread Man (just to name a few) is brutal. It's lazy writing and it becomes tiresome. By the time he gets to the section where he should motivate all good conservatives to take action; the book has went on much too long and lost its momentum.
