As the title suggests, the book is an attack on our big government and why we should return to the roots of our founding. Anyone who has watched or listen to Beck will find very little new here. As I was reading it, I could picture him saying it.
Beck raises a number of issues that Americans must take seriously. One that sticks out in my mind is how crazy our tax code has gotten. Beck argues that it is through the tax code that the government chokes its citizens. Beck makes a good argued and makes his arguments armed with facts, the Constitution, and our history. Our economy struggles because the American people are paying too much in taxes.
Beck also attacks liberalism, socialism, global warming and a whole host of issues. I must agree with Beck; our nation has abandoned its founding. Our founding fathers would not recognize America as she now stands.
Overall, i thought this was a good book. I had my skepticism. But Beck writes with such passion and honesty that it is hard to put the book down. It is a short book that includes a copy of the original "Common Sense" by Thomas Paine. I consider this to be an important book that every American should take seriously. Certainly Beck is controversial and many disagree with him, Beck has made an important contribution to the future of our county. If we consider Beck's argument, we would be a better county.
