Description
Americans don't just want change this election year, they want real change--but most have no idea where it will come from. Democrats can't provide it and Republicans won't. But former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich does. He explains what is wrong with our country and how to solve our problems in his blockbuster new book, Real Change: From the World That Fails to the World That Works. In this no-holds-barred assessment of American politics, Gingrich approaches our nation's problems with a private-sector mentality and an entrepreneurial spirit, offering commonsense solutions for the issues of today and the challenges of tomorrow. He lambasts both parties for creating a "government of the bureaucrats, by the consultants, and for the special interests" and busts the myth that voters are entrenched in a "red state" vs. "blue state" mentality. Gingrich exposes the truth: Americans are united on almost every important issue. It's the politicians who drag us into partisan bickering and away from real change.

display_description Are you fed up with bickering politicians, self-satisfied bureaucrats, and a government that never seems to address the real problems facing our country? Can we create a government that is small, efficient, and responsive-from the state house to the White House? Is that kind of real change even possible? Newt Gingrich, architect of the Contract with America, says it is time for citizens to demand results from our elected officials. In this revealing and exciting new book, he shows how America can achieve transformational change-from a government of bureaucratic failure to a government that can meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. As a first step, Gingrich busts the pernicious myth that America is divided between conservative red states and liberal blue states. As Gingrich points out, the American people are united on almost every important issue facing our country-including immigration, taxes, defending America, and freedom of religion. The real division is between red-white-and-blue America and a fringe on the Left. Red-white-and-blue America believes overwhelmingly-by majorities of 70 percent or more-that we need a change in course. But our politicians aren't listening. Gingrich reveals why the Democratic Party can't deliver real change and why the Republican Party won't. He provides answers and a step-by-step, issue-by-issue toolkit for building a better America-the safe, innovative, and dynamic America we all want.
