Editorial Reviews

Review

This provocative and perceptive book should be required reading for all of our public servants in the State of California . . . and for every other state in the nation for that matter. --Jim Doti, President, Chapman University<br /><br />An informed electorate is essential to preserving liberty. Jim Gray s book stands out for its clear and insightful discussion of key issues confronting America starting with a discussion of the traditional value of self-reliance. Gray advocates Free to Choose as the slogan for prosperity, and he offers common sense approaches to issues ranging from education, healthcare, and nuclear energy to drug policy and capital punishment. Gray draws on his experience as a courageous and highly-acclaimed trial court judge to educate and inform voters. He explains how government is frequently the problem not the solution and he provides workable answers to many of America s staggering problems. Yet Gray makes clear that his primary goal is not to get agreement as to all of his approaches, but instead to help readers to think about critical, and controversial, issues and then act on one s own beliefs and get more involved in pursuing one or more of the issues discussed in the book. Most notably, Gray points to the widespread evidence of the failure of the war on drugs and he persuasively demonstrates how changing drug policy to treat drugs as we treat alcohol would better accomplish the goals of the drug war at far less cost and human suffering. Regardless of whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or Tea-Partier, for voters who want to learn how to effectively deal with the nations s top-heavy, broken political system, Jim Gray s splendid book is a must-read. --Manny Klausner, Co-Founding Editor of Reason Magazine & Co-Founder of Reason Foundation<br /><br />I recognize the unquestioned value that "A Voter s Handbook" represents to our party s candidates. We must get copies of this book in the hands of our candidates as quickly as possible. --Kevin Takenaga, Chairman, Libertarian Party of California

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a retired master electrrician. I live in Oregon. I found the Judge on C-span when I was on vacation in Utah and ordered his first book, "Why Our Drug Laws Have FAILED and What We Can Do About It" and I liked it. I then went on the internet and looked at his web site. There is saw his new book "A VOTER'S HANDBOOK" and it is the BEST because he not only give you information about the "the War on Drugs" he puts in like is. "Changing The Directtion of Government" and "Education", "Healthcare" and even a chapter intitled "Illegal Immigration". When you have read his book you might have some answers and can talk with your freinds and people you know about our country. It needs all the help we can give it. It's a good read.
