    In the words of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the United States is “an empire on the edge of chaos.” Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because we’ve turned our backs on the Constitution. Yes, our country is financially broke, but that’s just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has centralized power at the expense of individual rights.

    "Finally book that has done the reasearch..."
    Overall

    I loved this book. It really spelled it all out and did it in very logical arguments. The data is there. I know data can be manipulated to suit one's purposes but it seemed rather thorough. I enjoyed how Mr Beck didn't follow party lines all the time and outlined things that both republican and democrat presidents did wrong in bringing us to the brink of financial collapse. I enjoyed hearing the pep talk about how the federal government should not be telling us much of anything yet we seem to be complacent in letting them take all the power they want. I was also delighted to finally hear someone else bring up the constitutionality of property taxes. If you think about it, you can own your home but because you can never really own the land, you by default don't/can't own your home because it can be taken by the government for failure to pay your property tax. It is a crock. Anyway, I would encourage you to all read this book. It changed my views and opinions and it might open your eyes a little wider and light a small flame under your ???
