Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power and Deception in American History | [Andrew P Napolitano]

Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power and Deception in American History

America is the land of the free, after all. Does it really matter whether our politicians bend the truth here and there? When the truth is traded for lies, our freedoms are diminished and don’t return. In Lies the Government Told You, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how America’s freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties.

Publisher's Summary

You've been lied to by the government. We shrug off this fact as an unfortunate reality. America is the land of the free, after all. Does it really matter whether our politicians bend the truth here and there? When the truth is traded for lies, our freedoms are diminished and don’t return. In Lies the Government Told You, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how America’s freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties.

    Story
    "For a judge, this guy really doesn't get it."

    I should have known this was going to be a bad one after listening to the introduction by Ron Paul. To say there are numerous flights into fantasy here would be an understatement.

    One example alone is the 2000 presidential election. To hear Judge Napolitano tell it you would think the Supreme Court hijacked the Presidential election for their own gain. Those of us that were there, covering it day after day as it happened, know it was much more simple then that. The Supreme Court of the United States simply told the Florida Supreme court to obey their own law. They added an admonishment that the Florida court cannot simply make it up as they go along.

    This one was a waste of money. I've heard the Judge give interviews on Fox News. It is not certain what happened to the judge that gave those interviews and thoughts when he composed this work.

    Story
    "Lies this book tells you"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    By not being so biased this book is not for critical thinkers it does not provide information or facts to support both sides of the argument, but rather the author pushes his opinion, In short it is a book that supports Ron Paul's view's and is just another Obama bashing piece of poor literature.


    What was most disappointing about Andrew P Napolitano’s story?

    His lack of any sense of fairness and balance in his argument.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    na


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It has some funny antidotes.

    "Too AMERICAN"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Well I think I did notice the TITLE. The book is great for what it promises but it is too american and lots of legal refernces to my liking. If you are not american or really involved dont buy it. However I DID LISTEN TO IT.


    Would you recommend Lies the Government Told You to your friends? Why or why not?

    To hard core americans who argue abt the perfect world YES. To everyone else maybe no.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    War on terror.


    Could you see Lies the Government Told You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really it is too disconnected.


    Any additional comments?

    Again good book if do not assume to be anything besides the title. A mistake that I did.
