    A book almost every newcomer to politics should read.

    As someone who tries to balance himself between the labels of "right wing libertarian" and "constitutional conservative", I can easily understand the very basic arguments and solutions representative Nunes provides. This isn't a conservative manifesto, per se, but a book that offers some conservative (not Republican, there is a difference) solutions to the most pressing issues of our time, according to most Americans and Nunes. Now, I'm sure some valid arguments could be brought up against some of Nunes' "solutions" but that is beyond the point of this book. The overall point of the book is to offer a clear and straight to the point premise for some of the issues that we have tried "fixing" with left of the aisle and even middle of the spectrum solutions, all to no avail. The United States must start implementing conservative values; liberal values have ruined Europe and they are ruining this country. Please read this book! It's a fairly short read.

    The Republic Still needs to be Restored-Pass on Nunes

    Devin Nunes' Restoring the Republic is a "clear, concise" example of unimaginative writing laced with glaring hypocrisy. Apart from his tax reform proposals, his solutions are political platitudes, bromides with no substance. His "colorful blueprint" ends up a bland tint of grey, as his conservative rhetoric and name-calling accentuate how difficult it will actually be to restore the republic. From the introduction chapter, Nunes' perspective and plan for the book is clear: to denounce "the radical left" and to present the issues in a way that evades responsibility and endorses not only his own party, but also Devin Nunes, himself. Throughout the book, Nunes tries to isolate himself from Washington politics even though he has been serving in the House of Representatives for eight years. By giving readers a view into the inside workings of politics, Nunes tries to exempt himself from the corruption and political tactics that he denounces. Nunes tries to come off as your friendly representative, but ends up insulting the reader's intelligence by depicting a one-sided view of every issue. Additionally, his constituency seems an afterthought, as he scrambles to highlight the main issues facing the San Joaquin Valley, until the conclusion chapter at the end of the book. Nunes' intentions fly off the page. The book tries to bolster his image and endorse his plans, "A Roadmap for America's Future," which he stuffs down the readers throat at any and every opportunity available. On the surface Nunes succeeds in his goal of creating "a clear, concise blueprint for America's future," but after more careful analysis it is obvious that the book exudes a partisan perspective. By the end of the book, it becomes apparent that Nunes leading the charge in establishing a new generation of Republican leaders who have "commonsense logic" with no intelligence at all, reactionary platitudes that encourage government resentment and apathy, and clamorous condemnations that stifle progress and perpetuate partisan politics.

    Fantastic book

    This book gave me hope. Hope that our country will not go bankrupt and enter a period of permanent decline. Nunes describes how our country got into the shape its in and outlines solutions to the big problems facing our country. Problems that will cause the United States to become a failed state. No American generation has been poorer that the previous one. In the future this will be the norm. That is, if things don't change in Washington, D.C. A tragedy unfolding before our eyes; a tragedy that Nunes says can be stopped, if we act now. I have told my friends that if they only buy one book this political season, buy Restoring the Republic.
