Elected governor of Ohio in 2010 and now in his second term, John Kasich served in the U.S. House from 1983 to 2001, where he spent eighteen years on the House Armed Services Committee and six as chair of the House Budget Committee. In his fourth book he looks squarely at the state of today’s divided country, and lays out two options. We can follow those who are driven by anger, and whose resentment fuels hatred and further division. Or we can work together, as the Founders did, and turn fear into hope by drawing on the strength of the ideals that set the nation in motion at the beginning.
ABOUT TWO PATHS
When Ohio governor John Kasich ran for president, his powerful message of hope and togetherness struck a chord with American voters. In Two Paths: America Divided or United, he carries that message forward by reflecting on the tumultuous 2016 campaign, sharing his concerns for America and his hopes for our future, and sounding a clarion call to reason and purpose, humility and dignity, righteousness and calm.
"The country never looked so grand and magnificent as it did from ten thousand feet," he writes of his time on the campaign trail, "and it was always a thrilling, faith-affirming thing to look out our window and see the sun splashing across Bryce Canyon in Utah, or the lights of the New York skyline at night as we flew past the Statue of Liberty, or an open field in the heartland that ran as far as our eyes could see.... I'd look out and think what an honor it would be to lead this great nation, what a blessing."
To be sure, the full story of the 2016 Presidential race will be written over time, but to understand what it was to be on the front lines of one of the most divisive and corrosive campaign battlegrounds in history, readers won't find a richer, more thoughtful firsthand account than this one--a frank, refreshing assessment of the American dynamic and a clear path we might follow toward a more promising tomorrow.
As Governor Kasich reminds us in these pages, America is great because America is good--and because Americans have stayed true to who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible.
