Blaze TV and top radio host Dana Loesch explains that the biggest political problem today is that the people who run this country have no idea what life is really like for ordinary Americans. In fact, they have contempt for the very people they claim to represent.
When the owners of a small pizza parlor in Indiana were asked by the local press whether they would ever cater a gay wedding, they said no, citing their personal religious beliefs. The internet responded with immediate outrage, posting death threats and vicious online reviews, and forcing them to shut down. All for expressing a personal opinion rooted in faith, in response to a completely hypothetical question. A new front in the culture war had been opened.
When the owners of the pizza parlor told Dana Loesch on a Blaze TV interview that they might never reopen, Loesch started a fundraising campaign. Hundreds of thousands of dollars quickly poured in to support them. The people donating weren't taking a stand against gay rights; they just believed that a random mom-and-pop shop shouldn't be run out of business because media and political elites on both coasts caricature and vilify rural Americans.
Most of the problems with our country today can be traced to a very simple cause - the growing disconnect between the government and media elites and the rest of us, the old-fashioned, hard-working, God-fearing Americans who are proud to live in middle America. As Loesch explains, too many people getting on their high horse about Wal-Mart have never shopped in one. Protesters outraged at small town cops have never been helped by one. Environmentalists who claim to want to protect the spotted owl have never been in the woods with one. Atheists who attack committed Christians have never sat in a pew with one.
Loesch doesn't take aims solely at the Democrats; some Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail have also forgotten what life is like for the people back home. While these so-called leaders may have forgotten the people in coal towns and farming communities, the voters in those communities haven't forgotten Washington's betrayals. And it will show in 2016.
As one of the most powerful and recognizable voices on talk radio today, Dana Loesch is leading a revolution of America's new Silent Majority.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Dana did a great job of capturing the hearts, souls and feelings of flyover Nation people.. we aren't fully wake up. and when get stop feeling sick and tired of being sick and tired and stop crying about being patronised by the progressive right and left we will do something in this country that hasn't been done since 1776 we have the courage we have the will we have the nerve to determination to fight back. Dana thank you for the inspiring book will listen to it several times they realize how much I'm a flyover Nation girl
Funny, conservative, & informative. What else could you ask for? Mrs. Loesch(how you get "Lash" out of that I'll never understand) is the firebrand of conservatism. Her writing style is extremely entertaining and thought provoking. The narrorator, Mrs Schnaubelt, even sounds like Dana. Great audiobook!
I was born in Ohio, and raised in Washington state. I have family all over flyover. I have many family members who have served in the military. I also have family members who are farmers and ranchers. I was raised with a strong Christian faith and a strong work ethic. This book spoke to me. I loved it from start to finish!
This book was on the money. Dana speaks about who the real blue collar working men and woman are. The people the politicians claim to know but don't. I look forward to Dana's next book.
I Experienced Flyover Nation Growing Up In Southern CA. She Seems Bitter At Coasts For Not Having A Dad Growing Up In The City. However I Agree With The Points Made. Middle America & The Coasts (I Grew Up Knowing) Make America Extrodinary. Book Will Win Your Heart Back To What Has & Will Make America Great!

This book made me crave my home state of Missouri I now live in New Jersey this book was great! And Dana tells it just how it truly is! Thanks for such a great book! Thank you for such a great book! I now live in New Jersey but my home state is Missouri. They know you have made me miss my home state more than ever. You are so correct on how the coast are compared to the heartland of this country. Thanks again for a great book!
A follower of Jesus. An avid fan of historical religion (fiction or non). I am still a lover of Stephen King because of his writing.
Well done, Dana. Truly enjoyed this book. It hits the mark on so many topics. God bless you and your family.
I could put names and faces to a whole host of the people she talks about, obviously not her experience, but I did have a great deal of common feelings about what she describes.
This book is good to read before voting in the 2016 election.
This is possibly one of the finest examples of what conservative folks in the United States are all about. Well written yet unpretentious and also well read. I consider it a masterpiece of truth and I hope it will be revealing, persuasive and influential to thousands of readers. Thank you Dana!
This book doesn't really cover any new ground or offer new solutions. She hits the wave tops on a lot of our issues, but never takes it to the next level. Dana reminisces about her childhood and wonderfully describes middle America in this book. There's just not enough meat here.
