Gingrich adds a book to his stack

(CNN)-Potential GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s new tome will hit bookstores in June.

The 356-page treatise, "A Nation Like No Other: Why American Exceptionalism Matters," will explain the theory of American exceptionalism and "issue a stark warning about what we stand to lose if we abandon it."

According to an e-mail release by Regnery Publishing, an imprint of the conservative Eagle Publishing, Inc., the book will explain that exceptionalism is “not about congratulating ourselves for how wonderful we are-it's about challenging ourselves to live up to the high ideals of our founders.”

Set to be released on June 13, Gingrich, who has published 21 non-fiction and fiction books, delves into American exceptionalism as a system built on the belief that rights do not come from the government, but from God, and that honor and responsibility are given to the individual, not the state.

“In America, the individual is sovereign, not the government,” Gingrich writes.

The former House Speaker fell short of announcing a presidential exploratory committee in March and instead launched a website to “explore the possibility of a presidential bid.” He filed paperwork with the IRS to form a fundraising committee the same month.

The book includes a section on the “5 American Habits of Liberty.” Its release will likely follow the announcement of Gingrich's final decision on whether he will seek the GOP nomination, which is expected to come in May.

    Gingrich showed in his active days and ever since how “exceptional” negative he is. And he wants to tell anyone what America is about and how to live up to high standards? Disillusions, deceptions, plain lies and greed are the characteristics of his live. It is not only that he and his likes know there on the dark side, they use it to rip the country off and “give” it all to their rich friends. As long as a part of the voting public does not take real interest in society and the political possess these “Characters” will always be able to fool a certain part of the public and hurt the country. Sad, sad…
