The True Patriot

The True Patriot

by Eric Liu and Nick Hanauer

The True Patriot is one of those rare books that comes along none too often that screams something that needed to be screamed.  An amazing read, it is a blend of classic American speeches from some of the greatest orators this country has known, and a call for a New American Patriotism. Liu and Hanauer declare that patriotism needs to be redefined, and then set out to do so, detailing their thoughts in a well conceived 10 part plan.  With a belief that the right has co-opted the concept of what it means to be a Patriot and the left has abandoned it, they redefine what it means to be a strong American and ask of each of us to take part, and make the US the beacon that it can be, should be, and will be.

This is a book that every American should read and a primer for anyone wishing for a stronger civilization as a whole.
