Plain Truth Paperback – July 29, 2008
Top Customer Reviews
John Tait has a remarkable ability to encapsulate complex issues, complete with appropriate value judgments, in compact sentences that spring off the page. He begins his indictment of the status quo in Plain Truth eloguently:
"American government, in its natural state, served as Western civilization's crowning achievement; in it's current state, it is our most devastating failure. the former represents an entity comprised of great men dedicated to protecting and preserving culture; the latter is made up of traitors intent on its destruction. ... What was once an indispensable friend has become our most dangerous foe."(pg. 7)
Tait reveres America's founding fathers, and is thus a strong advocate of both Constitutional Republicanism and representative government. Noting that despite the best intentions of our founding fathers, the ship of state has sailed far off course, he offers an explanation that echoes many of the sentiments expressed in Western Voices podcasts, though more succinctly:
"As a district becomes more diverse, its representative must fulfill expectations of people from different cultures and with contradictory expectations. Those of a particular background will ask for special privileges. However, special privileges for one group always come at the expense of another. As the groups grow more substantial in both size and number, the representative's job will become increasingly more difficult. A politician expected to address the concerns of his constituents will find the task impossible."(pg.Read more ›

1) Plain Truth is a witty and hard hitting book that examines the consequences of government which denies America's origins as a Western nation guided by Christian principles.
2) Plain Truth by John Tait is a 21st Century version of Thomas Paine's Common Sense.
If anyone knows anything about Thomas Paine, they would know that the "kind" of Christianity that the majority of Christians have claimed over the years in America, would be looked down on by him.
I was going to read this until I saw the foolish product description, which is stated above on sentence #1.
