Take Back America came to be during a trip to New York City. It started out as a joke since none of us have ever written a book. The idea could not escape our minds, the more we thought, the more we hoped a book of this kind could be a real inspiration to the American public. One idea turned into another and another. All of us have watched as our country has taken a turn for the worse. Inflation has skyrocketed out of control to the point people can barely afford the gas to get back and forth to work or put food on their table.
America has always been known for its fundamental family values, moral integrity, and responsible citizenship. Standing by our principles has become so overwhelming because of our hectic lives and the shifts we work; fitting the simplest things into our day is barely possible anymore. Therefore, many of the essential characteristics, that have made our country an inspiration to most, have been lost along the way. Without our show of patriotism, it looks like we take our country for granted. Most of us who live here and love our country have been neglecting our responsibilities as U.S. citizens. It is with this in mind that we give you this book to bring back the missing qualities we are lacking to "Take Back America", one individual at a time.
In the pages of this book, you will read many suggestions that you can incorporate into your daily lives to "Take Back America". Can we do them all? NO WAY!! We are only humans-not super heroes!! What we need is for all of you to take some of these ideas and make them your obsession and "Pass Your Enthusiasm Along" to others-make patriotism contagious.

Reports of political corruption flood the airways. Stories of economic disasters follow. Greed and hypocrisyare rampant among our elected officials. Energy prices soar. What IS an 'average citizen of the US to do about all these growing ills? Four women, home-grown in the Festus 'Missouri'area, have many suggestions for how to 'Take Back America' from the forces that are threatening our way of life. A read of this book is a chance to sit down with Kim Roth, Angie Shell, Sharon Blackwell, and Galena Coleman and to have a relaxed conversation about what is wrong and what steps 'we the people' can take to make things better. Each chapter contains 20 solid suggestions for improving our lives and the lives of others around us. Many topics are discussed. They include realizing what one person can do, being a more responsible voter, securing our borders, growing familly integrity, showing common courtesy, fostering common sense, and supporting U.S. made products. The authors have also included a list of source materials gleaned from the Internet that expand on these and other topics of interest. These sources add to the breadth of material covered and allow for updates as new information is added to the web sites. In a time when we often feel pawns to forces we cannot influence, these four women 'two mothers, two daughters' hope to reach out to the rest of us and share their good old Missouri 'Show Me' skepticism in evaluating the country as it is. Still, they also find reasons for hope and optimism, but only IF WE ALL PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING AROUND US NOW AND TAKE STEPS TO WIN BACK WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY LOST.Was this review helpful?

I found this book to be very inspiring. These four women put their ideas to paper, and after taking a road trip together found their selves astonished by a country that was hardly recognizable. They were so alarmed at the state of the highways, bridges, and other infrastructure. When they arrived at their destination, no one at the establishment where they stayed spoke English. I have had this happen to me before and I am sure others have as well. I can identify with what they went through and understand their alarm, but instead of just complaining, these women wrote a book. A book that is much needed at this particular time in America's history. I would recommend this book to other Americans who want to do what is right to make this country what it should be. Americans can learn alot by reading this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
