Publishers Description A Commonsense Approach to Revive America It is not too late to bring political, moral, social, and economical revival to the United States. That's the loud and clear message of Keith Butler in Reviving the American Spirit. In his book, the successful African American pastor from Michigan, a staunch Republican running for the U.S. Senate in 2006, spells out his platform of traditional values and conservative views on a variety of issues, including immigration, taxation, education, legal reform, energy resources, and global threats. You will be challenged and stirred as Butler makes a thought provoking argument concerning several controversial subjects. For example, he says that if African Americans knew history, they would all be Republicans. Additionally, he argues against abortion by providing its economic consequences. "Common sense is the underlying theme of this book]," Butler writes. "It could almost be the title. I take a commonsense approach to my own life, and that carries over into my public life. Reviving the American Spirit is a commonsense-guided tour of the big issues that confront us today in the United States of America."

Common-sense conservativism Jun 21, 2006
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.
Butler argues: -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.
