What Works - Cal Thomas

 Common sense solutions for a stronger America. Forward by Sean Hannity. It's Groundhog Day in Washington. Cover features Mr. Thomas with a groundhog and dressed in a top hat like it's Groundhog Day. He goes as far as even mentioning the Bill Murray movie of the same name.
 "We haven't just emerged from a cave and must discover fire or invent the wheel."
With quotes from the book of Ecclesiastes and the Federalist Papers, Mr Thomas makes this point right off the bat. We need to go back to what works and stop doing what doesn't work. This book is broken down into four parts part one consult the past and use common sense Part 2, concentrate on people not politics ,Part 3 we can solve our problems and part 4 what will work . The author is one of the most popular syndicated columnists in the country. 2014 marks the 30th anniversary of his syndicated column. I have been reading Cal Thomas for a long time, had read his previous books, and was expecting a book like this one very soon. Given the unrest of today, the author is a voice crying out in the wilderness. I would consider this a Christian political book as it explains politics from a Christian perspective. The Bible is quoted along with the founding fathers. The basics of the book to get back to what works. We don't need to relive Groundhog Day everyday. My concern is most people won't read this book that really need to because it comes from a Christian conservative columnist.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know how to fix the problems of this country, and to those who already agree with the author, to realize you are not alone. There are others with a voice in the media who agree with you.
