Glenn Beck, number-one best-selling author and radio host, reveals the cold truth behind the ideology of progressivism and how the tenets of this dangerous belief system are eroding the foundation of this country.
Why do we accept the lies?
Politics is no longer about pointing to a shining city on the hill; it's about promising you a shiny new car for your driveway. The candidate who tells the people what they want to hear is usually the one who wins - facts be damned.
Politicians may be sleazy and spineless, but they're not stupid. They see that the way to win is by first telling people everything that is wrong with the world and then painting a vision of the life they want - a Utopian vision that they'll create right here on earth, one where no one is ever sick or hungry, jobless, or homeless. All we have to do is surrender our freedom and someone else's wallet, and they'll make it happen.
And so they continue to lie, and we continue to believe them, and they keep winning elections.
The only way to break the cycle is to understand why Americans fall for the deception over and over again. In Liars, number-one best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck reveals the startlingly simple answer: fear. At our most basic level, we're all afraid of something. Progressives from both parties exploit this by first pointing out the things we should be afraid of and then offering us "solutions" to these fears. Solutions that always require us to give up our freedoms. Solutions that are based on two things: lies and an unrelenting hunger for power and control.
In his signature no-holds-barred way, Beck destroys the false promises of Progressivism and takes us through its history, showing how each "wave" built up on the one before it, ultimately washing up to the beach in the form of Barack Obama - and whoever is next.

Tired teacher. That is, REtired teacher.
No big surprises in this book except for . . . Well, you will have to decide what is surprising. I look at it this way. Anything that I am forced to do even if it is a good thing takes away my freedom of choice. No one should have the power to make my choices for me. Let me make my own choices, even if they are stupid. You make stupid choices too, and anyone who makes the kind of choices you make in your own life should jolly well not be allowed to make mine for me. ("You" is not everyone, but "you" know who you are.)
Fabulous book. It was put together very well.
I just wish GB would narrate his books.
It's disheartening sometimes to think about the people making a living taking advantage of others. But if must be done, I prefer to hear it from Glenn Beck.
I hope that people with get over their perceptions of certain people, and read or listen to this book. And thru honestly listening to the facts, and thru personal research, realize that if we don't start doing something different as a country, we will find ourselves living in the utopian paradise that progressives have been trying, and succeeding, to get us to as a country. And we will wake up to a living hell of zero freedom over our very lives and families.
Great book. Please recommend to ALL your friends! It can save our country. Beautifully written and very honest. All the information can be fact checked with a quick Google search. This book will teach you there is a difference between Democrats and progressives. Not all progressives are Democrats. It affects both parties. Our system is broken. I feel as if I've earned a degree in History and political science, after reading this. It's a book everyone should read. Including college students.
This is a wonderful explanation of how progressives have slowly taking over our country. and with foresight and intelligence how to reverse this negative imbalance.
While the book makes an occasional sweeping connection, overall, the points are well researched and sound. Biggest strength is historical background on the formative years in the personal lives of some ofPProgressivism's pioneers I've not seen elsewhere.
