Publisher's Summary

Bestselling author and former Speaker Newt Gingrich reveals how Big Government Socialism is crippling America—and offers strategies and insights for everyday citizens to overcome its influence.

In communities across our country, Americans are debating Critical Race Theory, vaccine mandates, tax increases, rising inflation, online censorship, and a host of other important issues. 

We have serious decisions to make about the future of our nation. Do we want big government, or limited government? Do we want to work hard and keep what we earn, or do we want government to decide how our money is spent? Do we want our children to learn how to think in school, or be told what to think? Do we want to make our own decisions about health care, or should the federal government dictate our treatments? Should American companies compete on a level playing field, or should Washington decide who wins and loses? 

Speaker Gingrich analyzes these questions, describes the polling that shows what the American Majority wants, and illustrates how we can create a safer, more prosperous, and secure future for America.  

In Defeating Big Government Socialism, Gingrich explains how Americans can reject the values of Big Government Socialists who have taken over the modern Democratic Party, big business, news media, entertainment, and academia. He lays out a roadmap to save America’s future and ensure it remains the greatest nation on earth.

Where will US go

I fear we are in the next generation moving away from freedom and Newt lays out the challenges and opportunities to turn away Socialism. I pray parents and grandparents will take the challenge to ‘train up’ the next gens in the way they should go to preserve our and their freedoms

Substance vs.history .

The substance is very insightful however the history lesson allows the free thinking mind see how not to make the same mistake twice.

Newt Gingrich Understands What it Takes to Keep the U.S. Free

We face a crisis and crossroad that will determine whether we will remain a free nation governed by our Constitution and rule of law, or whether we will sacrifice our freedom to those power hungry individuals and corporate entities, i.e. the liberal woke crowd, that would make us subservient to their wishes and rule regardless of our laws. The book explains this phenomena in a way that anyone that appreciates the freedoms we still have should be able to understand.
The audio version would be better read by the author, Newt Gingrich, himself.

Gingrich shows why we need his wisdom now!

Newt Gingrich show why he is the perfect senior advisor for any American president, especially one who wins on an American first agenda including law and order, limited government, eliminating the national debt, fiscal responsibility, addressing the internal threat of Marxism and the external threats of communist expansion. Marxism is destroying every institution while Communist China and Russia manipulate other governments and corrupt our own politicians who look at every decision of governance with an eye to profit rather than uphold their oaths to the American people. Newt once again provides clear analysis of what is, what will be and what could be if we have the will to change course. We have enough people..We need to elect leaders who will bring innovation and change consistent with our historic values. Newt needs to be in the middle of this not on the sidelines.

Good, but not up to Newt’s normally great works

It’s a good book, it’s not got a lot of new thoughts or ideas. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve listened to all of Newt’s books and loved the all, but isn’t his best work.

Every American Should Read

If you live in the United States and enjoy its freedoms and liberties then you should be trying to ensure that they continue to be available to everyone including the next generation.

I realize that it's hard to fathom what you can do as an individual to help this country get back on track to be the great country that it has been in the past.

Listening to this book will help you to understand what truly is happening to our government today and how it came to be. If you believe like I do that this country is not going in the direction that it should be and socialism is not an option, Newt helps us to understand what we should be doing to make changes.

Not only do I believe that every American should read this book, I believe that it's imperative that every elected official should study this book carefully. There are too many people in Washington that don't understand how close we are to losing the freedoms and liberties that we have. Republicans, Democrats, and independents all need to find a way to work together and focus on "We the people" instead of we who have the power.

I don't understand how people that have the power to make this country better don't take advantage of that. Instead, they get into public office and use the power to make themselves and this country look foolish. I'm not sure if they do it on purpose or if there's some sort of peer pressure that causes them not to stand up and act with integrity and honesty.
