While I was reading this book, I do what I always do. I connect to either Amazon or Goodreads and I look at the other customer's reviews. Although I tell myself not to, it is something I cannot control. At any rate, I did so and read one of the only review on Goodreads (since the book was so new at that time) wrote that the book sounded like Dr. Paul was trying to break his arm by patting himself on the back (my words). I commented on her post and informed her I was on chapter three and did not get that impression. Then it happened. I saw the change in him. Now don't get me wrong, I love Ron Paul, and the fact that THIS man came from the gene-pool of Dr. Ron Paul, he gets a small break from me.
The book covers a litny of inidents where the Federal Leviathan has overstepped their Constitutional authority and have caused head-aches, heart-aches, ridiculous fines, and even long stints in prison. Paul describes real life stories of the EPA imprisoning people and destroying their lives because the LAND OWNERS decided to add fill to their properties; in some cases even after the EPA told them it was OK. Paul also tells the story of the FDA raiding small business, how we have been stripped of our 4th amendment rights by the TSA while people board planes with expired boarding passes and fake IDs.
The book is well written. The self inflicted accolades not withstanding, the book covers true issues that exist today. As a supporter of the liberty movement, I feel that the we need to "organize" and find common ground with the political opponents when ever possible. Lets at least fight beside them on the issues that need to be defeated and then stand without them on the ones that cannot be done together.
