Description

There are some things people think but don't say....

"Political correctness is the classic Great Idea Gone Wrong. All it's done is shut us up. It hasn't changed anybody's mind. It hasn't changed our hearts. It's changed our faces. It's taken every opinion we have, it's taken every joke we have, and it's forced us to conceal it and hide it and bury it. It's made us superficial."

"Terrorism isn't caused by poverty, poverty is caused by terrorism. Terror is a tool used by those seeking power to keep the masses in need of an answer."

"Too many people blame everything on everybody else, and because they do, they will expect too little from themselves and too little from their children."
Glenn Beck says all that, and more.

As one of the most listened to nationally syndicated radio talk-show hosts and the driving force behind the Rallies for America, Glenn Beck entertains, inspires, and informs millions of listeners. In The Real America, Beck continues to tell it like it really is, cutting through the fog of modern-day pundits and pontificators who have made it their mission to undermine and underestimate the greatness of America, our strength as Americans, and the power of the American spirit.

With his inimitable combination of self-effacing humor and heartfelt conviction, Glenn rails against many of the forces that keep us from our potential as a nation and as individuals -- and tells how to overcome them. His topics include:

• Family and community
• Politics
• Personal responsibility
• Race relations
• Religion
• Political correctness, the media, Hollywood, and celebrities
• Abortion and the deat• penalty
• Alcohol and drugs
• Why I wave the flag

Glenn Beck's compelling message in The Real America echoes the ideas he has delivered to thousands of people with his groundbreaking Rallies for America: Once we connect with our power individually, we can empower others -- and then we can be as great and as grand as we have always wanted to be as a person, as a people, and as a nation.

    This is one of my favorite books by Glenn Beck. I loved it! It was nice to get to know a little more about Glenn himself. All of his books are educational as well as entertaining.

    I am late to the party in terms of reading Beck's books having just discovered him but this book is incredibility insightful and a wakeup call to people who value individual freedoms.
  • From a person who actually READ the book

    It was a rather good book with extremely valid points and views. Being that I actually read the book, rather than just search for books written by my opposing political party to negatively rate, it was good. This is definitely not a book for close minded individuals, nor for people who only agree with what their chosen political party believes. It's just a good read to see how everyday freedoms that we all take for granted are under attack...from ALL parties and corrupt politicians...not just from one.
  • Outstandingly horrific

    Beck shows us once again the extent of freedom to which we live in; that is, the freedom that allows any American to fabricate truth and write a book about it.
