Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are looking for an easy read with clarity and wit, this book is for you. Each chapter has two stories to illustrate conservative values.
I especially like the chapter where the author advocates for a strong military. This is an unpopular, but essential principle to preserve liberty in our nation.
There are also fictional debates between two friends, a liberal teen and a conservative teen. Their interactions show young people how to argue for conservatism. The debates are not bitter, and sometimes humorous.
The author's targeted reader is the teenage crowd but the book resonates to people of all ages. We need to stop and think, how much freedom are we willing to give up to be government controled.
The message I took away from this book is to be aware of what is going on around you. Don't wait for someone else (or government) to "fix" things for you. Take control. Don't miss opportunities.
The book is timely and a must read.

"I don't care. Why should I? It doesn't affect me anyway..."
If you are a young person and have thought this way about politics or social issues in America, check out The Goliath Agenda. It'll make you think twice...
Through fun stories and amusing debates, author Steve Belonger brings to life vague concepts like equality, redistribution of wealth and political correctness, among others. He calls them Goliaths. Why? Because, as he explains, these ideas "are well equipped, established, hard to change, and often arrogant."(pg.xv)
So who's affected by these Goliaths? Young people! The main characters in Mr. Belonger's stories are mostly average teenagers and college students who are just enjoying life. But as they do, they encounter the harsh reality of these Goliath concepts.
They have to choose to think for themselves, instead of letting Goliaths do their thinking for them. They have to stand up for what they believe instead of conforming to what everyone else thinks they should believe. It takes guts. There are consequences. Sometimes their choice puts their social status on the line. Sometimes they have to alter their plans for the future. But they're willing to take the risk, because freedom is important. They value their freedom to work their own job, make (and keep) their own money, and express their own opinions. They don't want the government to run their life. Instead, they want it to protect their "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness."
The point? The Goliaths touch our lives, no matter our age. But although they may be big ideas, they don't have to dominate us. Even young people aren't too young to think for themselves and confront these giants.
So do you care? Maybe you do...
