Common-sense conservativismJune 20 2006
George G. Roberts
- Published on Amazon.com
Keith Butler explores the reasons behind America's recent moral and economic decline and offers a common-sense, step-by-step plan of action for everyday citizens to take our country back. Well-researched, compelling reading that never doubts that America can and will live up to its ideals of being both a good and a great nation.
Keith Butler is a Republican who was elected to the Detroit City Council in 1989 despite the fact that 88% of Detroiters are Democrats. Although Butler is a core-values conservative, liberals will have a hard time disagreeing with Butler's cogent and insightful exposition of conservative principles.
-How the harvesting of natural resources and protecting the environment need not be at odds
-Immigration reform that promises justice for all
-How "Pro-Life" is a woman-affirming stance
-How the flat-tax benefits the poor by untaxing them while eliminating the $700 billion wasted yearly simply on tax collecting compliance.
-Faith-based measures work. (Brazil's Humaita Prison has a shockingly low 16% recidivism rate)
Butler contrasts the exemplary civil rights record of the Republican party with the shockingly poor record of the Democrats in exquisite detail. Butler points out how the conservative values of Blacks make the Republican party a natural fit.
Puncturing liberal myths with measured reason, not malice, Keith Butler just may get his chance to be "Debbie Stabenow's worst nightmare on Election Day" as he promised in the First Senate Debate.
Most importantly Butler's philosophy is one of action, not words. His ministry has fed and clothed 100,000 people in just the last 7 years.
