Martial arts master, actor, political activist, WND columnist – there is no job Chuck Norris can't do. Now the original tough guy is at it again, stepping back into the role of bestselling author with his new book, “Black Belt Patriotism.” In “Black Belt Patriotism” Norris gives a no-holds-barred assessment of American culture, tackling everything from family values to national security. More than a cultural critique of what's wrong with our nation, “Black Belt Patriotism” provides real solutions for solving our problems, moving our country forward and changing our nation's course for the better. Chuck Norris – the hero, icon and legend – is back, packing a political and cultural punch as only he can deliver.
It seems like wherever you turn these days, the news is bad. Illegal immigrants are swarming over our borders. Our nation and American families are crippled by debt. We remain vulnerable to Islamist terrorist attacks. Judges ignore the Constitution and instead legislate from the bench. Faith and traditional values are under incessant assault from the media, leftist lawyers and the liberal establishment. The core message of the Declaration of Independence – that everyone has a God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – is under threat from liberals who deny the right to life (or even the very idea of God-given rights) and who think the answer to every problem is a government program. They think that God, if He exists, might not know best, but liberal-run government certainly does.
If you're worried about the direction our country is going, you're in good company. Chuck Norris remembers a better America – an America of faith, freedom and respect for tradition, history and human life – and in "Black Belt Patriotism" he shows what we need to do to reawaken the American dream, reignite the American spirit and give our children and grandchildren the America they deserve: an America of freedom, opportunity and faith. In 10 practical, down-to-earth chapters, Norris gets back to basics, mining the insights of our Founding Fathers and applying their wisdom to the problems of today: immigration, the culture wars, the war against global terrorism, national (and personal) debt, even the epidemic of obesity that is killing more Americans than terrorists do. With the optimistic, get your-hands-dirty, can-do spirit that typifies what's best about America, Chuck Norris grapples with the toughest problems facing our country and proves that they're no match for "Black Belt Patriotism."
“Among the most impressive parts of ‘Black Belt Patriotism’ is the obvious commitment Norris shows towards the next generations of Americans. He spends page after page talking about the need to harness the passion of young people for helping others into a movement for positive change in the country. He also offers a primer for parents in how to raise their children into responsible people who are ready to be a force for good in this country. … Imagine that! We have actually found a celebrity with a ‘life’s mission’ that is not about his own career advancement or popularity. If the rest of Hollywood would take a cue from Norris, we might be able to put down the antacid and the remote control the next time they take to the airwaves.” – Greg Corombos, Human Events
“This book is a wake up call to Americans about what is really wrong with our country and the direction we must take to correct it. It is an optimistic book and will challenge you to get involved as a citizen to remake America into what is was before- a country where its citizens can pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Like Chuck's fighting style, the book is straight forward, hard hitting, and finds its mark. If you only read one book this year, in my opinion, this should be the one.” – Christian Truckers Network
