The United States—the world’s great bastion of freedom—is sliding toward socialism. Recent high-profile bailouts show the walls between government and the private sector are getting thinner each day. Federal control now extends in various ways to education, healthcare, financial markets, real estate, businesses, and religion. And as out-of-control government spending and debt increase accordingly, America is drained of the economic and political strength its people fought and worked so hard to achieve. But it isn’t too late to save the land of the free.
Saving Freedom is Senator Jim DeMint’s firsthand account of the unsettling socialist shift—behind-the-scenes actions in Congress that are changing the character of our nation. He illuminates key principles of freedom and how they are being compromised by big government. More important, DeMint lays out a complete action plan to reclaim America’s freedom based on legislation that would reduce debt, fix Social Security, and provide a tax credit for every family to buy health insurance. The plan also emphasizes reversing America’s cultural decline by restoring a strong spirit of God and country.
Highly Recommended!| Posted October 28, 2009
I recommend this book mainly because Sen. Jim DeMint is telling us that we, as individuals, have a decision to make whether the country wants to choose freedom or socialism. He points out that America is sliding into socialism and, through a plan, can bring back freedom into our lives. Let's hope more people read this book!

My husband asked me to read this book because he's in a contest and gets points. I'm so glad I read it. This book explains socialism in words that I could understand. A lot of questions I had were answered. It's a book that I highly recommend!
