6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mark D. Valenti on August 11, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Bandow served as a special assistant to President Reagan during the early part of his first term. After the administration went back on its promise to reduce the federal government, Mr. Bandow left and wrote several books and hundreds of essays on the corruption and mismanagement that is a daily routine in Washington, D.C.
This large book is a collection of around 200 of his essays (making it well worth the price), detailing his experiences in D.C. and how both Democrat and Republican politicians are drunk on power and continually disregard the principles of freedom that this country was founded upon.
Readers of this book will be amazed and disgusted when they read how the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards have cost Americans untold jobs and untold lives. They will be appalled when they discover how federal crop subsidies keep some farmers wealthy while driving up the cost of produce for the rest of us. And unfortunately there is so much more...
It can be emotionally draining reading about the current state of our government, but Mr. Bandow does an excellent job of interjecting appropriate humor and character into his essays. I personally like the fact that each numbered essay is listed under a specific topic and each topic compromises a chapter. I found myself reading essays out of order, starting with the issues I felt most relevant to my life.
This is a fantastic reference source that does not lose its effectiveness over time. After all, the federal government has not gotten any smaller, has it?
