Mark Steyn is a modern day Jeremiah with a quiverful of devastating one-liners, nailing what the liberals have done to our country. He presents an alarming—and frighteningly convincing—prophecy of where we’re headed. The choice is stark—we either listen to Steyn and act on his recommendations or face economic and cultural armageddon.”
Mark Steyn has done it again. In his new book, After America, he clearly defines the dangerous signals which show America is embracing the same doomed path as the failed European economies, and how vital it is to implement and avoid policies right now to prevent us from the same fate.”
Only Mark Steyn can write about the decline of America and leave you laughing.”

Will the American people take heed of the dreary (and increasingly dangerous) state of our world and face up to our responsibilities as citizens of the sole super-power, or will we remain paralyzed and incapable of taking action until it is, quite simply, too late?
I enjoyed the quote from Justice Marshall that sums up the growth of the federal government. "Industrial power should be decentralized. It should be scattered into many hands so that the fortunes of the people will not be dependent on the whim or caprice, the political prejudices, the emotional stability of a few self-appointed men. The fact that they are not vicious men but respectable and social minded is irrelevant."
This quote from Justice Marshall hits home with the basic understanding of our Constitution and its formulation of "rights."
As Steyn eloquently points out, "rights" as meant by the U.S. constitution is more geared to "negative rights"...."the right to be left alone by the government in respect of your speech, your guns, etc." Nowadays, rights are seen as "rights" to stuff granted by yours truly, the government (but paid for by you).
Even if you disagree with Stein's conclusions, you should read this book, first, because it's always a good idea to hear all sides of an argument, and second, because Stein is among the smartest and wittiest writers that you are likely to encounter in 21st century journalism.
