While the mass media has been enamored with President Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress, they have been lacking in their journalistic duties by not calling into question the detrimental policies that have been passed only to endanger the future of America. However, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich takes the Obama Administration to task in his latest book, "To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine." From the outset, Gingrich astutely explains the threats posed to individual liberties and limited government by President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. As the three leaders of the secular-socialist machine, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are unilaterally pushing through legislation such as health care reform and government bailouts, which Gingrich and fellow experts from organizations such as the Center for Health Transformation argue will overburden taxpayers, kill jobs, and amass ineffective bureaucracy upon individuals. Gingrich breaks it down for the reader in common sense language that the Left are stripping away traditional America with its limited government, free markets, and religious principles and replacing it with big government policies favoring unions and other ideologues. Through chapters proposing policy reforms on health care, energy, green conservatism, and education, Gingrich convincingly details how America can regain its prominence in the world and how the individual can triumph over the encroachment of big government. Although to readers who may deem Gingrich a partisan conservative, he acknowledges encouraging initiatives from across the aisle. For instance, Gingrich lauds First Lady Michelle Obama for her campaign against obesity in children. If only more Democrats and Republicans could engage in such noble campaigns and reach across the aisle to legislate common sense reforms that will encourage economic growth, job creation, competitiveness in math and science education, and real health care reform. Gingrich closes by leaving it up to the reader to decide as an American citizen to get involved in elections so government works for the people not for bigger government. The American citizen can start by reading and sharing this book with everyone they know.

Newt Gingrich has done it again: he has written yet another fascinating and must-read book for anyone who cares about the future of our country. To Save America is an insightful and erudite work which, better than any other book I have read yet, exposes and explains what President Obama and the Democratic leadership really is: a "Secular Socialist Machine". This label may strike some readers as either hyperbolic or extremist, but Gingrich is aware of this, and so he spends the second chapter of his book ("Why 'Secular-Socialist Machine' is the Only Way to Describe the Left") explaining and defending this label- and he does so extremely well. First he offers an honest explanation of "secular", that it does not mean atheist but rather a lack of acknowledging God as fundamental to good civil society. Gingrich offers readers seven very different- and very scary- examples of how and where the secular left has and continues to try to impose its agenda on our country. From the 2004 case in the 9th Circuit Court which ruled "under God" an unconstitutional part of the Pledge of Allegiance to the ACLU attempting to dismantle a memorial cross in the Mojave Desert, it becomes clear that there really is a secular agenda in our country and it is a distinct part of the Left. Then Gingrich explores the term "socialism", showing how The Employee Free Choice Act, Cap and Trade, Obama's healthcare reform and many other programs are distinctly socialist in nature. Lastly he explains what he means by the term "machine", showing us historically as well as offering contemporary examples not just of what a political machine is, by why the Left needs it to accomplish its agenda. After reading these explanations, Gingrich's term "Secular Social Machine" no longer seems hyperbolic or extremist, but disturbingly accurate. But what always amazes me about Gingrich's work is that he is not only a deconstructionist (that is, he doesn't just tear down the other side's policies and arguments) he is also very much a constructionist- offering readers policy after policy that would help to truly turn our economy around, fix the healthcare fiasco, protect our national security and help us to better understand ourselves historically. One quickly sees that America has never been a nation which valued or sought the policies and objectives of this current Administration. We have always been a God-fearing, freedom loving and industrious people, yet the Obama-Pelosi-Reid team would undermine all of this for their own very alien agenda. Gingrich can be a polarizing figure, but the fact is that if you read his new book- and I highly suggest that you do- you too will be polarized: polarized on the side of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

This book tells only the truth.

The problem with this book is the assumption that socialism is by its nature "secular" (non-religious). The idea is, if you have religion (the right kind, of course), that will effectively fight socialism. I once asked a politician who believed that, Is Christian socialism any worse than atheistic socialism? His reply: A befuddled expression, and "I would consider that a contradiction in terms." I wanted to ask, "Ever hear of the Pilgrims?" Newt Gingrich, in this book, makes some irrefutable points that freedom in America is being destroyed. Well and good. But since the ethics of Jesus and the ethics of Karl Marx are so close to each other, you cannot fight one with the other. That's why, in the long run, religious conservatives cannot fight the moral battle against socialism; in fact, the religious conservatives only throw gasoline on the fires in which our freedoms are being consumed.
