The Real America : Messages from the Heart and Heartland
The Real America Messages from the Heart and Heartland Author:Glenn Beck 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 b... more »ury 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
Political correctness, the media, Hollywood, and celebrities
Abortion and the deat
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.« less

Wonderful book, very easy read (read it in about 5 hours because I couldn't put it down). Glenn is such a real person, so genuine. Book talks about being neighborly, honest, just being a good person. If you are like me and wish our country would just revert back to good old common sense, you'll really enjoy this book.
First of all I adore Glenn Beck; he is just an awesome guy. I liked him before I read this book, and I like him even more after reading it. The Real America is funny and honest and at times very frustrating in it's accuracy. This book is well worth a read, just make sure to pass it on to someone else to read when you are done; spread the wisdom! :)
