As Americans, we face two fundamental questions:First, are we truly prepared to fight this new war to wipe out terrorism and terrorist regimes, and win it decisively—no matter what sacrifices it requires or how long it takes?Second, are we once again prepared to teach our children the fundamental principles and values that make this country great—the values that make this country worth fighting for, living for, and dying for?Sean Hannity is the hottest new phenomenon in TV and talk radio today His gutsy, takenoprisoners interviews and commentary on the Fox News Channel's Hannity amp; Colmes have made him one of cable television's most popular personalities And his ascendance to the top of the talk radio world with ABC Radio's The Sean Hannity Show has won him a huge and devoted following that includes not only conservatives but anyone else who values straight talk over pandering and excusesNow, in Let Freedom Ring, Sean Hannity offers a survey of the world—political, social, and cultural—as he sees it Devoting special attention to , the war on terror, and the continuing threat we face at home and abroad, he makes clear that the greatest challenge we have to overcome may not be an attack from overseas, but the slow compromising of our national character And he asks why, particularly in this time of war, should we entrust our future to the voices of the Left—the very people who have spent decades ravaging so many of our core values and traditions?Our nation, as Hannity reminds us, was founded on the idea of freedom And in order to protect our freedoms, he argues, we must stand vigilant against liberal attempts to compromise our strengths From our military and intelligence forces, to our borders and airports, to our unified commitment to root out terrorists at home and abroad, he reveals how our strongest lines of defense have come under attack—by leftwing voices within our government, media, schools, and elsewhere And he shows how even domestic issues like taxation, education, patriotism, and the family have been exploited by liberals with their own agendas—with potentially disastrous resultsFilled with the commonsense commentary and passionate argument that have made Sean Hannity the most compelling conservative voice since Rush Limbaugh, Let Freedom Ring is an urgent call to arms For, as Hannity warns, We are engaged in a war of ideas And civilization is at stake

10 thoughts on “Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty over Liberalism

  1. Jeff Jeff says:

    This book is hilariously awful. The stilted prose, resolute refusal to seriously examine the bad ideas the book heralds as wisdom, and the prolific use of thought-terminating political cliche make it the literary equivalent of an enjoyably rotten, low-budget '70s B horror film. This is possibly the ugliest example of innumerate newspeak-filled political scrawl I've come across (and I've read a lot of right-wing punditry).

  2. Michelle Schingler Michelle Schingler says:

    I remember taking copious amounts of notes when I first read this book, presuming that profundities and revelations awaited on every page. A look back at those notes is an exercise in humility for me. I can't believe I ever fell for this man's flat-earth views, lack of nuance and finger-pointing. Reading this book was the opposite of edifying; it may reinforce your prejudices, but it won't make you better or more aware. So don't.

    Liberals bad...conservatives good...listen to my show

  4. Jerry Jerry says:

    This book may be over a decade old, but it's quite timely, especially since another Clinton is vying for the Presidency. Taken straight from the mouths and writings of the government's many liberals, this book shows what our country is in for if we don't make a change...and soon. Scary stuff, but important...and makes you wonder how anyone could vote for Hillary.

    (FYI: I will not be replying to any politically charged comments.)

    I thought it was a pretty good book. From this book, I came out wanting to do better at being informed about political issues and I want to teach my children to be patriotic and to love their country!

    Basically not sane. One of the worst books ever written.

  7. Marina Fontaine Marina Fontaine says:

    While lacking the superior wit and intellect of his more famous colleague Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity manages a decent summary of modern conservative philosophy in this book. The writing on the whole is only average, but I found Sean's personal story compelling (from troubled teen to construction worker scrapping his way through college to finding religion and becoming an exemplary family man as well as reaching professional success). This gives him more credibility in discussing economic/political issues than many so called intellectuals on both sides of the political spectrum, hence the 4 stars instead of 3.

  8. Tim Tim says:

    Hannity spends a great deal of the book picking out incidents of left wing liberals who do questionable and inappropriate things. He then attributes this to anyone who votes for a democrat. The good old if one member of a group does it you can apply it to the whole argument.

    If you are looking for a book to support your viewpoint as a conservative this is a book for you. If you are a liberal and looking for a conservative book to serve as a punching bag feel free to pick this up. If you are looking for new ideas you can better spend your time elsewhere.

    Sean Hannity is awesome. I loved this book, I agreed with almost all of his opinions, & his writing is fun to read & easy to understand, it's like watching his show only in book form. It's good for conservatives because it makes you feen good to have someone like Sean Hannity on your side, & it would be good for liberals too that they might learn something from it.

    This book (from 2002) is Hannity's impassioned argument for why Liberals (by which he really means Democrats) are well-intentioned but ruining the country and Conservatives (by which he really means Republicans) have the right plans to preserve and save it.

    I was hopeful about this book. My political views are varied and do not align to parties, so there are some things that I expected to agree with Hannity on. And the book was a gift from some smart, thoughtful conservative friends. So I was really expecting a stimulating read even if I didn't agree with some of what was said.

    The most interesting context point for this book is that it was written early in 2002, not long after 9/11. The change of national perspective and priorities that came right after the attacks pervades much of the thinking, and it is not easy to separate this book from those events.

    The disappointing thing about the book is that Hannity turns out to be much more of a Republican than a conservative. While he pays lip service to following principal independent of party, his text belies this. He has few criticisms of Republicans (even when they are betraying principles he has espoused), and few compliments for Democrats. Even more so, he prefers to prove his point by quoting others (either flatteringly or critically). Instead of making intellectually cogent arguments against a point, he prefers to find a stupid statement from someone on the other side of a point and quote that. Even when he is writing about points that I agree with, his arguments are not very though provoking or persuasive.

    The best part of this book for me (reading 12 years later in 2014) was as a reminder of the mindset in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. It is easy to forget that phase after so many years of complex, troubling consequences of our actions. I think it's important to really understand how we got here and that our over-reaction was driven in part by citizens with intentions to do what is appropriate and right. It's also worth saying that the book is clearly and crisply written by someone who is a good communicator, so this is a pretty easy read.

    I would not recommend this book, unless you are looking for insight into where the Republican/Democrat divide was in 2002. There is little here that is stimulating or thought-provoking and there are much better ways to expose yourself to the best arguments for conservative and liberal ideas in other places.
