In his new book, To Save America (Regnery Publishing, 2010), former Speaker of the House and AEI senior fellow, Newt Gingrich argues that the United States is not at a crossroad--rather, it is on the edge of a dangerous precipice. He warns that America is currently facing a great threat to its future with a radical president, a power-hungry Democratic House, an enormous federal and state bureaucracy, and a faltering economy. Gingrich also outlines how the administration's new political model, the plan to use "the power of the state to coerce and intimidate" to force change is destroying America. He explains that the "secular-socialist machine"--defined as the network of people, organizations, and businesses built over decades to steamroll the core values that built America--finally has leaders powerful enough to enact that fundamental change.
Gingrich also presents practical, real-government solutions for the most important challenges facing America through various themed chapters, including a model for economic growth fueled by small businesses and entrepreneurs rather than by big businesses; a plan for a better education system "capable of responding to the voracious American desire to learn;" a plan for an energy and environmental policy that increases environmentally-responsible domestic energy production and reduces America's dependence on foreign oil; a plan to improve the health of Americans through a meaningful and effective reform of health care policy which would "give every American more choices of greater quality at lower costs;" and a plan for a better national security policy to protect America against five potentially catastrophic threats.
