Overview


In his new role as president and CEO of The Heritage Foundation, Jim DeMint has travelled the country talking to Americans about how to return to our founding principles and restore and protect our economy and culture for future generations. He's realized that he-and all of us as fellow citizens-must fall in love with America-again.

In this book, DeMint introduces Americans all across the country who are working towards the same goal, We see example after example of Americans coming together locally in what DeMint calls the "little platoons"-the families, churches, communities and voluntary organizations succeeding on the model that smaller is better. They are the hands-on citizens who make America the exceptional, caring and can-do country it has always been.

DeMint illustrates why each of us-regardless of political party, age, race, religion or ethnicity-must rediscover the power we represent. The country's future is at risk, not just because of constant pressure from "the Bigs" (big government, big banks, big labor, big Wall Street cronies etc.), but because so many of us fear it's too late to solve problems so huge and seemingly intractable. Jim DeMint is here to reassure us that this is not true.

In riveting yet plainspoken style, he tells real-life success stories and affirms the compelling truth that conservative ideas are really American ideas, and they must guide us as we turn our institutions upside-down, taking them from the top-down centrally-controlled bureaucracies they've become back to the bottom-up democratic framework the Constitution intended.

Through this heartfelt, fascinating and inspiring look inside the America of both yesterday and today, and the everyday citizens who are working tirelessly and selflessly to insure its future fulfills the promise of its beginnings, Jim DeMint is beckoning us to join him on one of the most meaningful and momentous journeys we have ever undertaken together: FALLING IN LOVE WITH AMERICA AGAIN.

"In this important book, Jim shares stories of Americans standing rock-solid for their faith and values against the 'Bigs.' He speaks candidly about this anchoring faith, connecting love of God, country, and fellow man."
Star Parker
"With its bold ideas, this book is sure to shake up the power structure in Washington-which is what we expect (and love) about Jim DeMint. He is listening to the heartbeat of America: hard work, active faith, and local control drive real solutions. These stories will surprise and inspire you. "
LtCol Oliver North

"The heroes my friend Jim DeMint describes in these pages - like those I cover on the battlefield - are dedicated, resilient and committed to a cause bigger than 'self.' They inspire me - and they will do the same for you. This book is a must read for every American who cares about our future."

    I just could not put down the book. I was so captivated by the stories of individuals or as Sen. DeMint calls them, "platoons" across America who are working hard to promote our liberties and freedom that our Founding Fathers sought for us.

    This is actually one of the first books that I have finished cover to cover, in a while. What interested me with this book was how I could relate to the some of the stories that Sen. DeMint would write about. His story made it personable that I was able to see myself or my neighbor through the tidbit stories of regular Americans. It made me realize that as Americans, we have the duty to love people. Jim DeMint reminds and encourages Americans like me that I have a voice and America needs the voices of the "little platoons" to empower themselves through the simple virtues of faith, work, family, and community, Americans will be able to "fall in love with America again."

    I definitely recommend this book for people to remember why America has become the great nation we are so proud of and why it is important we protect its liberties.
