I'm a conservative person with lilbertarian leanings and even I did not like this book. I didn't have a problem with any of Wayne Allen Root's beliefs, but the book seemed to be a lot of complaining. And much of the complaining was very drawn out. He takes 4 pages to state something that can be expressed in one paragraph. He does offer some solutions but he doesn't have any substance to back his beliefs. I would recommend reading John Stossel over this book. John Stossel gives facts in his books ...more
When an Author says, "Whoever developed the Medicaid plan should be shot for treason" I automatically like the book. For those still voting party because you are asleep or drunk please pick up this book.
Libertarians or Losertarians (because they lose elections) are not a force in the political arena even though the majority of their ideas are shared by a large part of Americans when they hear them stated. Something has to change and most of the ideas in this book are excellent, and worthy of you

It's passionate, energetic, outraged, and sometimes controversial. The book is long and often reads like a detailed campaign brochure, but it is full of reforms aimed at reducing government's size and spending. Root's life is an interesting parallel with President Barack Obama's life, but while Obama believes that government can solve all our problems, Root believes that we can solve our own problems.
Mr. Root did offer many ideas on how the Government should operate but half of which I am not quite sure would be feasible.
Got tired of the author's self-promotion and whining but he made some good points on political and monetary issues.
