Publisher's Description

Following his New York Times best seller, Saving Freedom, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint's The Great American Awakening chronicles two tumultuous years from the presidential election of 2008 through the mid-term elections of 2010. Untold insider views of the controversial stimulus bill passage, corporate takeovers, and lesser-known executive actions that epitomize political paybacks and moral decay will further motivate DeMint's fellow citizens to reclaim their government and country in 2012. 

Just as fascinating, the South Carolina official talks openly about his seized upon high profile moments—from that "Waterloo" comment regarding health care reform to becoming known as "Senator Tea Party." He also addresses close-to-home disappointments such as the infidelity of Christian friends like Governor Mark Sanford and Senator John Ensign, and shares personal spiritual insights that came from being part of such public battles. 

But more than anything, The Great American Awakening champions the American people who now feel a powerful stirring in their souls to take on Washington and realign politics in this nation. DeMint tracks grass-roots developments, and new movements like the Freedom Congress, fully expecting a fundamental sea change for the better to happen soon.

Acclaim for The Great American Awakening:

"I have Senator DeMint on my show often because Americans know he'll tell the truth about what's wrong in Washington. His latest book is a riveting account about the fight for fiscal sanity in Congress. It's essential reading for anyone who wants to understand why so many Americans clued in and got involved with the Tea Party Movement in the last election. Senator DeMint was a huge part of this and I only hope he is as involved in the 2012 race for the White House as he was this past election."

Sean Hannity, host of the nationally syndicated Sean Hannity Radio show and "Hannity" on Fox News

Author Bio

Jim DeMint was elected senator of South Carolina in 2004 and then chairman of the Senate Steering Committee in 2006. For standing up against wasteful spending in Congress and saving Americans about $17 billion, Wall Street Journal editor Steve Moore called DeMint the "taxpayers' greatest ally." DeMint was also ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the # 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. The senator and his wife, Debbie, have four grown children, are doting new grandparents, and live in Greenville, South Carolina.

    This is a look at the two years between 2008's Presidential election and the 2010 mid-terms from someone who was in the middle of the action. So much happened in Washington during that time that it's impossible for the average person to remember it all. The details of the executive orders President Obama issued in the days after his inauguration left me breathless, even though I knew about the majority of them. And I'd forgotten that Rick Santelli's tea party rant took place less than one month after that inauguration. Anyone who thinks that the Tea Party is a GOP creation needs to remember that Rick Santelli was a CNBC reporter who had seen enough and had enough. His spontaneous rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange – cheered on by the traders behind him – was the 21st century's 'shot heard around the world.'

    DeMint's book isn't just about the politics and policies. It is, at times, immensely personal. The Senator from South Carolina has written of the isolation he felt when he began the fight against the status quo, even among his fellow Republicans. He was ostracized when he opted to support political newcomers instead of party incumbents. It's telling that Chapter 1 is called Becoming an Outcast. For DeMint, the birth of the Tea Party movement was a sign that he wasn't alone. He also writes candidly of learning that his wife, Debbie, had breast cancer. "My world seemed to go dark, and the cold around me penetrated my soul. Debbie shouldn't have been alone at a time like this." He contemplated not running for re-election, but, "To my amazement, Debbie said we couldn't quit. She thought I should run again and stay in the fight." It is telling that many of DeMint's decisions – including this one – are made after prayer. DeMint's faith is a constant throughout the book.

    At the time of writing this review, Jim DeMint has announced he will not run for a third term. I suspect, however, that he will remain a strong force behind the scenes with his Senate Conservatives Fund. I pray that the Great American Awakening he has described here will continue after his time in Congress has ended.

    I won this book in a random contest on the B & H Publishing Group website. I was not required to write a review, positive or negative. I have chosen to write this review and all words – with the exception of the quotes in paragraph 2 – are my own.
