Skylar Burris This was such an entertaining review that I now feel no need to read the book! I did very much enjoy your sarcasm in this, even if I probably couldn't live in your neighborhood because I'm a backward, paranoid prosimians slavering over my guns. Still, part of me is intrigued, because the book blurb leads me to believe that I must live in the only neighborhood left in the U.S. that is about 50/50 Democrat/Republican, and have the only extended family that is about 50/50 Democrat/Republican.

Sarahfina Good review. I was going to add this to my "to read" list but your review makes me feel like I'll just be reading a lot of stuff I already know. I'm reading Naomi Klein's "Shock Doctrine" so I'm already kind of going through that.

This country is just too big for a representative democracy like ours to work. True story.

Oh. And we ARE better than them :) But they have guns, so maybe I shouldn't say that...

mlady_rebecca Awesome review.

The overall concept of the book sounds interesting, although selectively taking out race and focusing hard on religion seems rather arbitrary.

Richmond Vernon If only election 2000 turned out to be the zenith of American political divisiveness

Andonu R. People don't need to live in societies like these. They can live without markets. They can change the constitution. See this.
