Glenn Beck again tries to inject some "common sense" into American political discussion with this tribute to Thomas Paine's historic book of the same title in 1776. In fact, that full pamphlet is included at the end of this book. Glenn tells of things that "will make blood shoot out of your eyes" as he's fond of saying. Although he doesn't provide much in the way of solutions, pointing out the problems is still a worthy goal. He covers such topics as wild government spending and the resulting monumental debt, the labyrinthine tax code, the failures of the 2-party system, and the insanity of congressional redistricting, among other things. What's interesting is having Paine's work from 1776 right there to see how some of the same issues plaguing the colonies then have returned to enslave us now. Those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it. Read this book, both parts, and stand up for the principles of accountability and integrity in our government.
