"Thomas Mullen is a knowledgeable and passionate libertarian and A Return to Common Sense is a valuable addition to the libertarian literature. Those new to the freedom movement will benefit from Tom's introduction to both the practical and moral arguments for freedom. Long-time activists will benefit from Tom's explanation of why strict adherence to principle is vital to the future success of the liberty movement."

- Representative Ron Paul (TX-14)
Congressman and author of The Revolution: A Manifesto and End the Fed.

"A well written primer on economics, liberty, and government that even avid Austrians will enjoy. If you have been blinded by government and Wall Street propaganda, A Return to Common Sense will help open your eyes. I not only recommend that you add this book to your freedom library, but that you buy a few copies for your friends."

- Peter Schiff, President of Euro Pacific Capital, Inc and author of Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse.

"In a time of national crisis, everyone is looking for the right politician to solve America's problems. A Return to Common Sense proves that it is not just the wrong people, but the wrong philosophy that has corrupted our government and derailed our freedom and prosperity. Like Thomas Paine's original, this book clearly and simply explains the timeless philosophy of liberty in language that every American will understand. The road back to freedom begins with A Return to Common Sense."

- Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Party Vice-Presidential Candidate and author of Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts (2009)

Format: Paperback
This is not just another book about America loosing its way. In A Return to Common Sense, Tom Mullen cuts through propaganda and false choices to focus on the heart of exactly how our country strayed from our founding fathers' vision and how to get back on track. It is a superbly written book defending the inalienable rights that have been violated for far too long. Awaken the liberty-loving patriot inside you and read this book!

A really great read! I could not put it down. Just coming off of reading what I considered to be the best book I ever read (The Left, The Right & The State by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.) I was figuring it would be a couple of books before I found one that I liked as much. I was happy that this book was just that. This is definitely the book that all Americans need to read and reread often. I'm going to pick up another copy to share with my family and friends. I think Tom has not only given the best explanation of what is wrong in this country but also the best common sense approach to fixing things. He brings so much together in this book from so many great teachers, Frederic Bastiat, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Ron Paul, Murray Rothbard, Peter Schiff...and many others but the best part of everything was HIS take on things, HIS explanation of things, done in HIS writing style that I've enjoyed ever since stumbling on to his articles. As much as Meltdown by Thomas Woods is THE book to read on the current economic crisis, A Return to Common Sense is THE book to read on the American Crisis.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely thought provoking book. This work should be required reading for high school civics. There are some assertions I would not agree with, however overall his call for a return to a free republic needs to be heard. I would like to see the author or others such as Ron Paul address some of the current social, economic and political problems we face in the context of a small government, free society. However, those wishes don't change my mind that this book should be required reading for all citizens and; more importantly; members of congress and state and local governments.
