Well written and a good mixture of humour, argument and accurate information.
I would advise people to read the book carefully (or to return to it after they have read it) - because one can read the work quickly (getting both pleasure and use from it), but miss important things that are tucked away.
Glenn Beck has evolved over the years - he now understands the libertarian case that many Republican politicians (especially in the leadership of the Republican party) are useless (or worse) in combatting the drift to ever bigger government in the United States. What matters is limiting government (not talking about limited government whilst expanding government - as with George Walker Bush), if socialists (indeed Marxists) such as Barack Obama are to be defeated then it will have to be done by people actually having principles (not just pretending to have them). If a Republican really does have limited government principles then good - if not they are useless (indeed worse than useless) and "if you do not vote for the monster the monster will get in" is a dead end (the "lesser evil" just paves the way for the greater evil - as Bush paved the way for Obama). Over the last few years Glenn Beck has come to understand this ("about time" would say some of us libertarians), and now he is sharing what he has found out with anyone prepared to read and think.

Very funny - and so true. if you have a problem with the Politically Correct coercion in todays society, this is great stuff. It's great to know there are guys like Glenn - who tell it like it is. The truth is never afraid, and needs no propaganda....unlike Socialism.
