    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    Dolf says: "Half the National Debt?"
    "A great understanding of the military"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Drift the most enjoyable?

    if I didn't understand the concept occasionally return and listened to the sentence or paragraph again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Drift?

    The understanding of how the military-industrial complex uses the political arena to receive billions of dollars for weapons that we don't need or are obsolete.


    Have you listened to any of Rachel Maddow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I watch Rachel Maddow on on MS NBC on occasions she's very bright intelligent and well-informed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My only extreme reaction was the stupidity of the American people to allow the military-industrial complex to rip us off.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't think I would like listening to books on my cell phone this is the 3rd book that I've listen and I have really enjoyed it.
