From the Back Cover
A rebellious challenge to the "upper management" of government, who are choking American prosperity and liberty
The American enterprise grew exceptional based on the founding principles of individual freedom, decentralized knowledge, and accountable, constitutionally limited government. But our "leaders" from Washington, D.C., have systematically replaced the dispersed genius of America with top-down dictates and expensive schemes designed to expand the power of insiders and protect the privileged positions of politicians, bureaucrats, and their cronies.
Freedom, not centralization
"Decentralized freedom" has become the strategy that will return America to its founding values, breaking up centralized government's monopoly on power and returning it to where it belongs: with We the People.
Senior management has failed us. It's time to clean house.
In Hostile Takeover, bestselling author Matt Kibbe exposes the privileged collusion of Washington insiders—and maps out a proven plan for how to return power from the self-appointed "experts" back to the people. Dubbed "one of the Tea Party's masterminds" by Newsweek, Kibbe reveals how grassroots citizens can and will check the federal behemoth and restore the American enterprise to its founding principles.

Progressives and leftists will not like this book and will probably not be convinced of the argument. You have to take a few assumptions before reading. If the first paragraph of this review did not make you cringe, then you might well enjoy this book.
All-in-all, Kibbe provides an awesome addition to a growing list of powerful Tea Party-inspired, minimal government books that are reshaping our intellectual landscape. Another one I would whole-heartedly promote is Juggernaut: Why the System Crushes the Only People Who Can Save It, which will also serve as intellectual footing for the coming hostile takeover.
It's a time for choosing, America!
But, maybe you are disgusted that the Occupy folks crap on the ground, receive tax dollars and political favors to support their cause while the Tea Party must pay insurance to hold a rally, be careful to not step on the grass, and are wrongly accused of using the N word. Maybe you understand that the holocaust happened because people just like us ignored the problem.
If so, read this book and get involved. Time is running out.
I am a Certified Fraud Examiner that is using my skills to help the Tea Party. I researched Senator Lugar and other RINOs for the Tea Party. You have a skill that will be useful in helping the cause. Be a patriot.
The Kibbe book is a good start and will help you understand the road ahead.
Obama and his Chicago thugs are trying to create Chicago politics on a national scale demonstrated so well by Pelosi who said about ObamaCare " you will know about it when you read it" and most recently by Obama's exercise of executive privilege to prevent Eric Holder from telling us about the massive screwup of the botched Fast and Furious plan in the Southwest.
Kibbe outlines the signs and the indications that this president intends to shove his agenda down our throats. Obama is following the writings of Saul Alinsky in his book Rules for Radicals.
He is declaring the private sector is "fine" and that bigger government would make our lives easier, more cost efficient, and much more effective.
Those that are paying attention know that this is 180 degrees from the truth when the USPS needs $ 12 billion per year to compete with FedEx and UPS, Amtrak is a joke, the VA treats our veterans as though they were cattle, etc. etc.
Kibbe's book is scary but an early warning to those blinded by the charisma of a clever but scheming president with a much larger agenda.
