It has further sparked me to write & call my representatives and express my feelings on new and existing legislation.
I recommend reading Glenn's "CONTROL", Exposing the truth about guns.
After reading these two books I can see how corrupt our elected officials can be. Mostly are.
God Bless America!
So like a lot of folks I was very interested to read this book. I think I was about to page 10 when I started to tire of what amounts to disorganized rambling with little relation to Paine's Common Sense. I soldiered on and read about half of it when I finally could read no more and put it down. It isn't that the ideas are worthless, it's that as a piece of communication it fails miserably. I think a better book editor (if there was one in the first place) would have done wonders. The chapters don't seem to be founded on organizing principles. It was like trying to get in the mind of a crazy man. I hate to say it but in my mind I am thinking Composition 101 should be taken again.
He made the further mistake of including Paine's actual treatise in the Appendix. The writers of Paine's day had a brilliant command of the language, so most modern literature doesnt measure up, but to put this up against what I think even for Beck was phoned in makes Beck suffer greatly in the comparison. I think if one is going to try to bask in the reputation of one of our greatest historical figures by naming ones book with the same title, then they had better put out a better product than this one. I actually gave my copy away.
If you interested in politics, you will throughly enjoy this book.
I recommend it.
