Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America (Hardcover)
Once again, through very researched detail and very precise wording, Mr. Levin gives us all a very ominous warning about what type of government growth we are careening towards and to what extent our personal liberties will necessarily be lost to that end. The book seems to be condensed to the point where re-reading usually brings out even more points to consider.
If you love what our country has always stood for and honestly want our Democratic-Republic to endure-this is a must read.
And very hard to argue with, hence the ratings attack by the lefists in this review section. It is their modus to simply slime something that they can not logically argue with.
Read and enjoy, then let it stew a week or so then re-read. You're bound to miss something the 1st time.

I don't disagree with you on the PC part of the military, or the number of servicemen and women lacking direct combat experience. But those of us that have come to know war well, have an understanding that someone sitting comfortably in their armchair reading headlines does not have, experience. Don't get me wrong, helping Iraqi's establish power and water substations on the American taxpayer dime is certainly nobel, and certainly made their lives a little better, but that is hardly "defense."

Son Of Samwise says:
Pehaps you should reexamine your definition of defense.
"We are led, by events and common sense, to one conclusion:
The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands.
The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.
America's vital interests and our deepest beliefs are now one."

First off; have you read the book?
If you have not, why are you commentating?
Since you are obviously a Ron Paul supporter, does Dr. Paul actually know you are doing this?
I have seen Dr. Paul as a kind and just man. What you are doing now could get you kicked out of the clique.

Have you read the book?
If not, why are you even here commenting?
Please go back to your hive and regroup.

Why don't you look at the FEC data for political campaign contributions?
In both the 2008 election and this one, more active duty US military personnel have supported Dr. Paul (in dollar terms) than any other GNoPee candidate.
Some of the right wing gas bags lie about that (including one of Off-the-Mark's "C-List," back bench replacements - but that's the fact.
Perhaps the problem isn't all them? Perhaps they are correct about Dr. Paul's views on foreign policy, and military vs. defense spending.

Nice try, but your lies have been falling flat for a long time now, holly.
Most folks who donate less than $200 do not disclose their occupations, and are not counted by the FEC.
Ron Paul's statistically insignificant claims include folks who claim to be "affiliated" with the military.
This includes spouses, children, parents and siblings.
They also include non-military civil service employees who happen to work on or in affiliation of a military base, or a private sector employee with limited clearance.
For example, a florist courier that delivers flowers to a homosexual civil servant who works on a base.
Factor out the anti-American Bradley Manning-type REMFs and the "affiliated" as a percentage, and Ron Paul's military receipts are an indiscernible fraction of the margin of error.
And don't forget that also categorized as "military" are positions such as "victim advocates," "sensitivity training facilitators," the "Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services" and the "sexual harassment task force."
What a joke.

You are right, I have read it twice and I am sure there are things mentioned I have not really understood at the dept that it was intended by the author.

So along with being a right wing nut you're a bigot?
Keep telling yourself that everything is OK and there's nothing to worry about.
You can spin to your little heart's content - it won't change the facts.
According to you, contributors to Dr. Paul are going out of their way to appear to be part of the US Military?
Got any more conspiracy theories?
As for contributions of less than $200, are you suggesting those don't make any difference to the GNoPee candidates?
