Publisher's Summary

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.

Everyone in America should read this if they live this count

It is astonishing how America has been led down a path controlled by others that are more concerned with power than the people. I can see how good people are just trying to survive while innocently going through the motions of life, while more sinister people are getting away with stealing our freedoms away, as we think everything is ok. As this book describes how a movement wants to make fun of those who believe in God. We need to realize that God is the one who will help make us strong enough to remove these terrible people from their power. God will be the real strength in the end and we need to turn to him so he can help us receive the America that God intended it to be. I can see that we shall not fear if we do this. And these people shall not win in the end. The answer is to turn to God. They are afraid that we will that's why they want to destroy the faith of Americans. Thank you Glen Beck for writing this book.

Calling a spade a spade

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.

Quite amazing

The book was quite amazing and intriguing. I believe people of any age will love this book my daughter, who is only 11 loved this book. But let me tell you before buys this book, Glenn beck does mention Evolution, but does not preach it or encourage it.

Amazing!

This book is fantastic. I asked myself some of the questions a few years back that Glenn Beck addresses in his book and all I can say is wow. He really delivers in presenting the past to reflect the present and how fear plays on the minds of people when it comes to the government and politics. A worthy read and must have!
