A Prayer for America

When Congressman Dennis Kucinich delivered his speech, "A Prayer for America," to the Southern California chapter of Americans for Democratic Action, it electrified the whole country. In his speech, Kucinich -- a 2004 presidential candidate -- warned against an America that had discarded the constitutional liberties integral to its identity: "Let us pray that our nation will remember that the unfolding of the promise of democracy in our nation paralleled...

Integrity in politics??? Who is Dennis Kucinich??

Kucinich has big vision, big integrity and a big following among those who believe it's time for us humans to put down our old ways and seek a newer world. He is not just a political candidate, but the point person in a movement that is growing moment by moment. I highly recommend this book, it's a tonic for weary Americans who are sick of being seen as the world's bully.

inspiration for Americans

These essays and speeches by Representative Dennis Kucinich provide an introduction to his spiritual message to the American people and to the programs he is recommending for future government actions. These progressive initiatives include establishing a Department of Peace,a universal health care program that extends Medicare to all Americans, reduction of the wasteful military budget that has lost track of over one trillion dollars as estimated by the GAO. This progressive program is one that will lift America into the ranks of nations with true democracy and possesion of the "four freedoms.This book should be read by all Americans, regardless of political views


I was absolutely amazed at the level of sophistication and honesty which can be found in Dennis Kucinich's eloquent speeches. I never imagined I would ever encounter a politician with so much integrity, humanity and wisdom. His words are inspiring and eloquent and best of all empowering. He is teaching America not to give in to fear and not to resign ourselves to the corporate domanance of our civil institutions and government. Long before anyone else was speaking out against this administration Kucincich was loudly rejecting the entire premise of preemptive attack, the patriot act and the blood thirsty arrogance of the neo-con junta. Particularly in the speech "Prayer For America" which every person in this country should not only read but see on video. This speech was given a relatively short time after 9-11 when dissent in the country was almost non-existant. It made him an overnight hero not just of the progressive left but of all those who could see through the lies and deceptions being peddled to us not just by the White House but by every major news outlet in the country including the not so liberal NY times. Kucinich is even more outspoken than the Nation who actually published the book. If they don't want to loose their entire readership I suggest they endorse him officially. they are after all supposed to be left of the democratic party. To be true to the position they have carved out for themselves they should have endorsed him a long time ago. This has made a lot of people question The Nation's integrity despite their involvement with this book. This man is clearly going to become president of this country and will probobly be one of the best we have ever had. It's time the people of this country started to realize it.

An Instant Classic by America's Best Hope

Abraham Lincoln jotted down the Gettysburgh Address on the back of an envelope. This book, consisting of edited speeches given by Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, has the same immediacy, beauty and brilliance of expression, and relevance to the American situation. Studs Terkel has added a wonderful preface.This is a book to be treasured, and, indeed, prayed over.

Finally, a Congressman willing to stand up to Corporations

Read this book if hope that America can once again have a government that can't be bought. Unlike 96 US Senators, the author had the courage to turn down corporate PAC money and vote against H-1b(the visa program that has displaced hundreds of thousands of tech workers since 1998).
