The following is excerpted from Tulsi Gabbard’s book “For Love of Country: Leave the Democratic Party Behind” (Regnery Publishing), which is being released Tuesday, April 30.

We have no time to waste. We live in troubled times. Our nation is bitterly divided. Our future as a republic, as a union, appears bleak. The news – the noise, the insanity, the darkness – is something many of us want to shut out.
