By Author/Reviewer Geri Ahearn TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 7, 2009
Format: Paperback
This novel takes the reader on an educational ride through the political
history of America from its past, and to the present. It is indeed an
essential wake-up call to all Americans in the political arena for a
stronger government to return to the renewal of morals and values that
once built America. The author clearly presents accurate research as he
compares the different views from the eyes of a conservative, and the
eyes of a liberal. Most important, he demonstrates through personal
experience how those differences between the two parties affected world
events, making this country what it has become today. Paul A. Ibbetson
penned an intriguing novel, based on life's lessons as he points to the
building blocks of American responsibility. He draws an imaginery line
between liberalism and conservatism in America as he walks the reader
through critical issues of today, while describing how the conservative
movement and liberal ideals contributed to the morality of American
culture. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning
about the political value systems that move America, and how moral courage is affected, based on solid research. Did the Hippie culture
and liberal bias affect standards in America? How did our higher
instirutions change? Did the Regan administration, or Bush's beliefs
on terrorism contribute to the shape America is in today? In a brilliant
presentation, the author covers The Fairness Doctrine, and The War On Terror. With extensive research, he presents documentation on The Patriot
Act, and views on global warming. To continue to peek the interest of the
reader, Paul A. Ibbetson describes with perfection the Border Security
issue in the United States.

Until 8 months ago, I identified mainly with liberals and democrats, but saw myself as a fiscal conservative. What I realized, and was affirmed through Feeding Lions, is that I was riding the fence. I stepped off and joined the world of conservatives. After reading this book, the choice is clear!

Another great read from a very talented writer.
Without trying to hide who he is from anyone who picks up this book, Paul managed to write a book that will captivate readers of any political slant. He states from the very beginning that this book is based on his view and the lessons he's learned through life, which he shares throughout.
A lot more approachable then his last, more technical release (Living Under the Patriot Act: Educating a Society), Feeding Lions gives a look into the views of a man raised from conservative roots in the very heart of America. From his first run-in with the hippie culture to his discussion of liberal bias in today's higher education institutions and from his views of Reagan's presidency to Bush's stand against terrorism, Paul manages to express how he reached the views he did and why he will stick by them until the very end.
For those who do not understand the basics of the conservative movement to those who may just want another view of those beliefs, I highly recommend that you pick up Feeding Lions.

Feeding Lions was the most fascinating book i've ever read. Ibbetson walks you through the patterns that separates liberalism from conservatism in American politics. This book spotlights not only a personal journey but is intriguing to see the building blocks of morality and responsibility. After walking through the visuals that are put before you, it becomes apparent how important principles of conservativism are at this time in our country.

A wonderful book that i'd recommend for all to read. You do not have to be interested in politics to become addicted to every single chapter.

This book was a great read. A quick and fun read. For anyone interested in conservative ideals, or for liberals who would like to find out why they should think more conservatively, this is the book for you. Paul Ibbetson's wit is sharper than ever, and his down home lessons are a good way to look at the important issues of our time.

Buy this book and read it twice. (Liberals, read it as many times as it takes)
