On the positive side, both books represent a growing body of citizens who understand that big government is very much alike to central government, and both are forms of fascism / socialism that are bad for the majority.
On the negative side, neither book seems to appreciate the fact that the Republican Party is every bit as corrupt as the Democratic Party.
Being already predisposed to agree with the author on the fundamentals, I found the book interesting but disconnected from a great deal of what I have been working on, including transparency, truth, and trust. Both the Republican and Democratic parties are corrupt; both have been busy borrowing a trillion dollars a year in our name while seeking to regulate our lives into misery.
There is a place for limited government, and a vital role: keeping business honest. Trust lowers the cost of doing business. The two-party tyranny has corrupted America, turned America into The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead.
The books well researched with many interesting notes, and it has an index [the same is not true of Capitalism 101, which is more like a bunch of personal stories bundled together.]
Where I have a problem with books like this (agreeing with the author on the basics) is in the denial of the raw fact that the Republicans have done as much if not more than the Democrats to loot the Republic, they just work in a different way.Read more ›

Put simply, classical socialism has never been very popular in the United States. For a variety of historical reasons, calls for government ownership of businesses or massive wealth redistribution have generally failed to resonate with the great majority of Americans. To get around this obstacle and to implement their policies of social justice, socialists have been obliged to use indirect methods, much as an army facing a superior opponent might resort to guerrilla warfare. The guerrilla warfare or "asymmetric socialism" most often consists of non-reform reforms. Policies ostensibly for the purpose of correcting defects in a capitalist system but really meant to overwhelm and ultimately to collapse the system, by which time people will be forced to turn to socialism.
DePalma shows that by his inclinations, education and past associations, Barak Obama works firmly in the tradition of asymmetric socialism. Where possible he has increase government ownership of business, in the automobile industry.Read more ›

This book is not intended to inform, but to serve a demagogic purpose. The writer has no understanding of socialism, or at least does not care to make it evident. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Think Twice
This book is a joke. The author doesn't have even a basic understanding of socialism. It's just more Obama bashing by a right wing ideologue.Published 15 months ago by Robert M Flynn
This character has no clue what "socialism" is.
He is a right wing hack.
A BIT STRIDENT, BUT STILL A VERY ENJOYABLE READ, THE AUTHOR BENDS REALITY A LITTLE, SO THINK ABOUT THE STATEMENTS AND CLAIMS. EVEN WITH THE ABOVE YOU WILL HAVE YOUR BLOOD BOILING.Published on September 14, 2013 by D A W ANDERSEN
To me, this book solved the mystery of why Barack Obama acts the way he does. I highly recommend it to all America-loving patriots.Published on May 26, 2012 by rexriley
