Overview

Texas.

It has provoked passions for the better part of two centuries. "If I owned Hell and Texas, I’d rent out Texas and live in Hell," snarled General Philip Sheridan after the Civil War.

These days a few grumpy liberals might agree with him, but far more people are wondering if Texas might be America's last, best hope.

As a matter of fact, it is, says Mark Davis. Low taxes, limited government, respect for faith and family, and a passionate devotion to freedom have made Texas the envy of the nation. Texans didn't invent these principles, but they stuck with them when they went out of fashion. People can live by other principles, of course—you can see the results in California and New York.

In Lone Star America, you'll learn:
— Why everyone should remember the Alamo
— How a government behaves if it wants more private-sector jobs
— Why pundits who call the Texas economic miracle a "myth" are out of touch with reality
— The real motive of those who sneer at Texas schools (which are probably better than your own)
— How the gushers of a century ago set the stage for the energy-friendly economy that's still booming today
— All about the Texans who might be your next president
— Which states are following Texas's example, which aren't, and how it's working out

The leading radio talk show host in Texas, Mark Davis knows the political and business leaders of the Lone Star State, and he talks every day with the ordinary Texans who keep the incredible economic engine humming. No one has a better understanding of the attitudes and values that are the keys to Texas's success.

"In the midst of America's seemingly endless economic winter," says Sean Hannity, "we keep hearing about a place where things are different. That place is Texas, and Mark Davis is here to tell you that everything you've heard is true."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I've been talking to America about liberty for years. What a joy to see my talk show brother Mark Davis spreading the news about his state, where liberty and the Constitution still actually mean something."
— MARK LEVIN, bestselling author and host of The Mark Levin Show

"Happily, Mark Davis actually writes like he sounds. And to his legion of fans who love the sound of his radio show, Lone Star America makes the convincing case that as Texas goes, so should go the USA. Texans have long considered Mark a treasure; they'll be happy to share him with the rest of the world through this insightful and compelling book."
— MIKE GALLAGHER, host of The Mike Gallagher Show and Fox News contributor

"You don't have to be from Texas to like Lone Star America. But it helps. Just kidding. Actually, it's we Americans who aren't Texans who'll benefit the most from reading Mark Davis's lively and instructive book."
— WILLIAM KRISTOL, editor, Weekly Standard

"I did not have the good fortune of being a native Texan, but as the saying goes, I got there as fast as I could. As a graduate student at the University of Texas, I fell in love with the state. In Lone Star America, Mark Davis explains, as well as anyone ever has, what makes Texas the greatest state in the nation and why even a native Brooklynite like me keeps going back for more. With more than twenty years of broadcast experience in the heartland of Texas, Mark Davis knows this great state and its great citizens inside and out. In Lone Star America, he explains why Texas is the best hope of conservatism today and why we must hold it high and defend it or risk losing this exceptional American experiment."
— WILLIAM J. BENNETT, host of Bill Bennett's Morning in America
