By Lou Dobbs
IF YOU DREAM OF A BETTER TOMORROW FOR AMERICA, FIRST FACE THE REALITIES OF TODAY.
Expanding on his candid ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇChalk TalksÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« that inform the popular "Lou Dobbs Tonight," the outspoken journalist points us toward the path to a revived America by forcing us to face facts: Our nation has lost its moorings.
We are alienated from political parties that have ignored the middle class, and we are rightfully outraged when General Electric, the worldÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs third-largest multinational conglomerate, pays zero corporate taxes while the average American struggles.
We live in an era of bipartisan dysfunction and of cronyism that would make 19th-century robber barons blush. Our business leaders are failing because CEOs know how tightly their success is linked to political contributions.
We canÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàt talk honestly about AmericaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs enemies without fear of reprimand from the ACLU. Political correctness is shackling our common sense.
We reelected a president who presided over one of the worst economies in history, set our foreign policy adrift and expressed contempt for the foundations of our free-enterprise system.
We have lost the values that once defined ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇthe American wayÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å thrift, faith, efficiency, community, ingenuity ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å and have given in to big business and an insatiable government ruling class. We accept our trillion-dollar debt as the new normal. And we are kept in the dark, thanks to the media that scarcely cover the issues that may not sell to a profitable demographic.
So whatÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs the good news? Every one of these problems is fixable and can be addressed right now. In "Upheaval," Lou Dobbs explains how to start thinking clearly again, how to engage in issues that matter, how to win arguments based on ideas and knowledge (knowledge really is power) and how to make a difference thatÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs imperative to our survival. "Upheaval" arms readers with this information for fighting back and does it as only Lou Dobbs can: with a style as frank and intelligent as it is witty and unfailingly honest.
