The fact that many folks are more upset about Governors Abbott and Desantis’s transporting-immigrants-from-Texas-to-blue-cities antics than they are about the yearslong crisis that has been happening at our southern border is an indication that too many people truly don’t understand the depths of the problem, especially the issue of asylum.Read more4 MIN READ

If the United States is going to maximize the advancement of our citizens while sustaining harmony with our planet, we have to stop listening to the nuts on the fringes (extreme environmentalists AND climate deniers) when it comes to energy policy and environmental issues.

An Idealist's Guide to Getting Big Things Done
About the book
Will draws on his unique experiences in back alleys of dangerous places, boardrooms of international businesses, and the halls of Congress to lay out a detailed plan to “reboot America,” offering a fresh start to a country mired in political divides and internal strife.
Will Hurd tells a great story about his life and his experiences in the CIA, private business, and as a Congressman.
The book also serves as a playbook for like minded Republicans that want to transform the party from the extremes of Trump back to a solutions based party that actually gets things done.
This is one of the best books I have ever read. Part personal story, part political analysis, but mainly just common sense thinking and analysis of solutions to problems.
Will Hurd is an amazing writer and person and I expect to see him do great things in the future.
This was a great read. As someone who tends to identify as an Independent or moderate, I thought Mr. Hurd made some great points and offered thoughtful solutions.
I hope he considers a run for political office again, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.
A life long Republican I had lost hope that I would ever vote Republican again after the extremist views have taken over the party over the last 6 years.
This book covered all my values & concerns in a nuanced way that the majority of politicians today seem incapable of doing.
Will Hurd has spent the past 20 years on the front lines of the most pressing fights facing our nation, in the Middle East, Congress, and the highest levels of business and tech.
Will has spent his life fighting for our country, and he will take those decades of experience with him as he fights for all us.
The choice we face
In every decision we make, we stand at a crossroads. The path of division and quick fixes is well-trodden, but it’s time we consider a different route – one paved with unity and foresight.
Imagine an America where common sense prevails, where policies are crafted with the people’s best interests at heart, and our collective strengths are the foundation of national progress.
This is more than a possibility. It’s a choice we can make right now. By coming together, we have the power to foster a nation that champions innovation, inclusivity, and integrity.
