I wasn't sure what to expect with this book since I've never really read a political book before. After reading it I found that I actually didn't care for the book. The title implies that he will give ideas on what we can do to "reclaim our country" and the only suggestions I could find were contained within four sentences on the last two pages which I considered to be kind of lame.
I disagree with the idea of a moral center, which before reading this book I didn't actually understand what one was. I feel like he, in theory, disagrees with a moral center, but is trying to create one anyway. I don't like the idea of sitting on the fence and just trying to get things to be "not as bad." It kind of reminds me of the scripture where God says he'll spew us out of his mouth if we don't take a side.
Anyway, I don't really recommend the book. Reading it was kind of like, "Um, I already knew that." There wasn't anything that surprised me or taught me anything, so that was disappointing. Well, I was surprised by the number of women getting married in the 1800s that were already pregnant, but other than that, nada.
