Everyone, no matter of your political affiliation, should read this book by Dennis Kucinich. Before picking this book up I knew I would vote for him in the Democratic primary because of his stance on such issues as capital punishment, health care and the war in Iraq. However there is a lot more to Kucinich than I thought. His ideals are made up of those as Bobby Kennedy, FDR, and Martin Luther King, Jr. It is about time someone take over the Oval Office, and not a 'wishy-washy' politician, we need a man like Dennis Kucinich, a man for reform. This is an excellent book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I really liked a 'Prayer for America.' The Department of Peace isn't a half baked idea at all. When I first heard about the idea a few months ago, I thought it was dumb since 'peace is obvious.' <p> Then I wondered: 'What if we spent $450 billion on peace instead of war?' <p> I also realized that President Bush had to withdrawl from the Geneva Conventions since modern warfare doesn't meet them. For example, the Depleted Uranium problems stay around for centuries. <p> My 2 cents: We need the Department of Peace and Dennis Kucinich has shown he is a visionary. <p> I also liked the 'Spirit and Stardust' speech. I was left thinking about the energy of the sun which is omnipresent and needed for life to exist. Lieberman told the world about the US and its special relationship with Israel. Obviously, we haven't been sending the right kind of spirit there because the problems are worse than ever! Kucinich understands that we need to be sowing good kharma, not bad. <p> Get the book! Read it. You'll start thinking about the possiblities for peace in new ways! <p> I now tell people that we don't have to destroy a country before we can rebuild it. <p> This guy has what it takes to become president and reveals some of the things that America should be doing.Was this review helpful?

A Prayer for America is the most liberating book I've ever read. The sense of helplessness and hopelessness I've felt, especially since 9/11, were lifted with every page I read. It could possibly be the most important book you ever read. His no-nonesense view of our nation and our world may save us from ourselves. I urge you to read this book and tell everyone you know to read it too. Better yet, buy this book for everyone you know as a gift - it may be the most precious one they receive from you!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich is criss-crossing America delivering speeches as he runs for President on the Democratic ticket. The present slim but weighty paperback contains edited versions of 15 of his speeches, plus a spectacular preface by Studs Terkel, Doyen of the American worker. If you haven't seen or heard Kucinich in person, on TV, or on the Internet via videos, and are wondering what the fuss is about, this book will provide some answers. Even if you have, this book will deepen your appreciation for Kucinich's vision for America, a vision that is sorely needed today, and his tough and practical understanding of the problems we face as individuals and as a nation. In language as simple and as profound as Abraham Lincoln's, this native son of the American heartland discusses the war in Iraq, corporate corruption, problems of poverty, what happened to California's economy, what's wrong with the Patriot Act, loss of millions of manufacturing jobs which have vanished overseas, how a single payer health insurance program could provide all Americans with health insurance by taking the outlandish profit out of drugs, and many other issues that are uppermost in our thoughts today because they are shaping our lives, and in many cases, ruining our lives. I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
