Editorial Reviews

Review

“Another eye opening, jaw dropping, blood boiling and fantastic book by Charles Goyette. Loved it!”
(-Robert T. Kiyosaki, bestselling author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad)

“There are two paths forward for America: towards fascism and poverty, or capitalism and prosperity. I don't need to tell you what route we are presently taking. But thanks to national treasure Charles Goyette, we now have a handbook for fixing what ails us: Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America's Free Economy. Read it for yourself and your family. Then pass the word to your neighbors and friends. This book can change our future. And how desperately we need that.” 
(-Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., Chairman and CEO, the Ludwig von Mises Institute)

Red and Blue and Broke All Over tells you everything you need to know about the fix America is in and what to do about it. Deftly interweaving history, economics, and political philosophy, Goyette provides a relentlessly interesting explanation of the true factors driving us toward fiscal collapse.”
(-Thomas E. Woods, Jr., author of Meltdown)

How did a country as prosperous as ours get “broke all over”?  Charles Goyette makes a clear and compelling case that it is the result of a change in American ideals.  The good news is it can be fixed.  Highly recommended!”
(-Barry Goldwater, Jr. United States Congressman 1969-1983)

“Charles Goyette is a real treasure. For years he has delighted radio and TV audiences with his unwavering devotion to the values of small government and sound money and personal freedom. In “Red And Blue And Broke All Over”, he has given us a funny and irreverent examination of ‘only in America’ tales of government excess and stupidity. If you have a crazy Big Government loving brother-in-law who needs a dose of reality, read this book and you will win every argument you have with him. And if you just want to know how the government has stolen freedom and property and enriched itself, Charles has it all here for you.”
(-Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Anchor, �FreedomWatch�, Fox Business Network)

It is a must read for anyone who may be concerned for the future of their family or this nation.
Big Mike
The author concludes that true recovery of prosperity in this country must be made by our return to the rule of law, sound money and less government intrusion.
Efrem Sepulveda
In a section of the book called "The Wormhole Express", Goyette details the revolving door relationship between Goldman Sachs and the U.S. Treasury.

A Review of Charles Goyette's Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America's Free Economy

By Tim Kelly

The United States of America in 2012 exhibits the characteristics of a nation in terminal decline. Her capital city is a den of iniquity and a seat of corruption. The economy continues to wilt under a barrage of bewildering regulations, corporatist manipulation, rent seeking, and reckless government spending. Washington's finances are in a shambles and the only way it can pay its bills is with money it conjures out of thin air. Comparisons to the last days of Rome are common.

Charles Goyette surveys this mess in his new book, Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America's Free Economy. The book's title pretty much sums up the author's analysis of 21st century America. According to Goyette, the country's bankruptcy has been a bipartisan effort. Goyette writes:

The inescapable conclusion is that both parties are to blame. Einstein's oft-cited observations that no problem can be fixed from the same consciousness that created it applies to the deflating promise of America. The restoration of the American dream will not occur as long as the political discussion remains constrained by the old voices of the Republicans and Democrats who marched us into our present economic morass.

Goyette's previous book, The Dollar Meltdown, a New York Times best seller, was primarily concerned with increasing government spending and how it is destroying the purchasing power of the dollar and thereby impoverishing the American people. In Red and Blue Goyette tackles the broader issue of long term economic decline, arguing the country's financial problems are a symptom of the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of its political establishment.

I always find it refreshing when I come across a new book that clearly and adequately explains the positions and principles that those of us in the liberty movement work so hard to promote and defend. With publishers releasing one shallow political title after another, it is a rare experience when I actually find a book that deserves an endorsement on my blog.

Red And Blue And Broke All Over by Arizona's own Charles Goyette is the most recent addition to my collection that is a must read for everyone who cares about freedom and liberty. While many of the topics are very familiar to the seasoned liberty activist, Goyette approaches them at different angles and sprinkles in lots of fresh insight and a writing style that keeps the pages turning.

The end result is an intelligent, easy to understand primer on personal and economic freedom and the basics of what the philosophy of liberty is all about. Goyette puts particular emphasis on private property rights, fascism and crony capitalism, the blessings of liberty, and (one of my favorite topics) the broken window fallacy.

Those who appreciate the writings of Thomas E. Woods Jr., Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Peter Schiff and Ron Paul will definitely want to add this important work to their library.

After listening to an interview of Charles Goyette, I decided to download this book to my Kindle. This book is divided into predictable chapters namely central planning,property rights etc but the meat of the book comes at the end when it deals with the enemies of prosperity, the dollar endgame and twilight of the empire. It is within these chapters that this author leaves no sacred cows untouched. He is very clear in describing the death of the dollar reserve system, our fiat monetary system which is engineered by the Federal Reserve and our farcical military, foreign policy and empire. Rarely do you see our wars and 9/11 ripped in such a clear manner.

The message of "Red and Blue and Broke All Over" is that we are near an exogenous event which will tip the scales as to whether this country will choose Liberty or a Centrally Planned Fascist State. The timing is my mind points to the election of 2012 in which I offer even odds that it may be suspended.

I know how difficult it is to raise one's head, to pull one's nose back from the grinding of the wheel, hypnotized by the turning to make a living, seeing only the left and right as a release from the sight of the grinding stone. But, pull it back you must...or freedom is lost to all.
Democrats, Republicans and the rest of us have been betrayed, sold-out, and lied to by self-serving delusionists Left and Right.
This book is specific in time, place, form, and event on how we've been screwed, how our children have been sold into slavery, and how the Purple (Red plus Blue) monster will continue its feast on our grandchildren.
Welcome to beyond "Brave New World" and "1984" into history and current events.
Welcome to the Truths.
We must deal with them.

This book is very good. Unfortunately, for me it is the second or third book I read with the same message.

Purchase was recommended during my readings of Weiss company financial Email letters.

Provides a number of background causes related to the sad and politically botched economic situation of America, and cautions to
consider for overcoming the pitfalls.

A book that should be on every concerned American's reading now list.
