Dana Loesch believes in Christianity, patriotism, traditional marriage, and the right to bear arms, among other "quaint" ideas. For the elites in DC, Los Angeles, New York, and Silicon Valley, that makes her as bizarre as a three-headed dog.
Loesch is alarmed that America is fracturing into two countries-not North and South, but Coastal and Flyover. Worse, the people in charge don't understand the first thing about how most of the country thinks and lives. Consider a few examples....
In Flyover Nation, people believe criminals should be punished. Coastal America focuses on "rehabilitation."
Coastals think they understand firearms because they watched a TV movie about Columbine. Flyovers get a deer rifle for their thirteenth birthday.
Coastals think every problem-from hurt feelings to the cost of birth control-requires government intervention and huge federal spending. Flyovers know that money isn't magic fairy dust, and many problems can be solved only by individual character and hard work.
It would all be funny-if Coastals weren't winning on most of today's big issues.
Loesch shines the light of truth on everything from feminism to gun violence to abortion. She reveals the damage done by elitists who flat-out don't get the lives and values of people in the heart of the country. In other words, how can you run a country you've never been to? And how much could our politics improve if Coastals would actually listen to their fellow Americans?
This book is a rallying cry for anyone who wants our leaders to understand and respect the culture that made America exceptional in the first place.
