This book is a real eye opener. It gives a time line, and shows how many things that are often over looked are connected. It feels like a true life compilation of the philosophies of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx. Makes one think of what shall become of us as a people.
This is a book written with an agenda. Basically, if you're a Democrat you can do no wrong, if you're a Republican you do nothing but wrong. The author does make some points, and it's not a bad story. The problem is that it's so one-sided that it's impossible to gain any kind of objective information from it. It's too bad, because I'm very interested in the subject matter. I just didn't feel I could trust anything here, and I only made it half way through the book before I gave up. If you lean to the left you'll love this book. If you lean to the right, or want to get a factual information showing both sides of the issues you won't get much from it.
This was a very informative book. It really brings out the dishonesty of our government. More people should read this book.
