This is an excellent book about a fundamental part of American citizenship. Although John Andrews is a conservative, he tries to stay away from the 'left vs. right' angle and instead focuses on an 'up/down' approach, encouraging Americans to take the high road w/ an increased awareness of our responsibilities as citizens. A great read from a very articulate author.

John Andrews has written a book, Responsibility Reborn, that many Small Government Americans will want to read.

In his Denver Post column today, he hopefully touts a new responsibility movement in America.

However, I'm not convinced that there is a responsibility movement. As Paul Krugman recently pointed out, the country is split pretty much 50% to 50% between the takers and the tax payers. 47% of Americans pay no income taxes after they take all of the Moocher Nation tax deductions and tax credits for having kids, paying interest on their home mortgages, buying health insurance and wasting money on uneconomic green energy projects.

The Moocher Nation is not taking responsibility for being Americans. And most of us have been part of the Moocher nation or are today. The Moocher Nation believes that "It's only the government's money," and that it is entitled and owed and should have tax payers pay for its favorite medical researchers, charities and tax deductions and credits.

So, on balance, a huge majority of Americans favor more government spending and smaller majorities favor higher income taxes "for the rich." Wealth envy is rampant in America, not responsibility.

Even Mitt Romney supports government subsidies for ethanol producers and other green energy scammers. Michele Bachmann wants government subsidies for home schooling and, I assume, private school tuition. Rick Perry has used the money of Texas tax payers to give tax credit incentives to companies that move to Texas, playing to the favored few at the expense of millions of taxpayers and workers who don't benefit from those tax credits.

John Andrews stunning work, Responsibility Reborn, is an incredible book. Mr. Andrews' ability to make his own personal journey in life both relevant and applicable to all Americans is greatly appreciated. The book can be read by every generation of Americans, and all will come away thinking about their own scoring system; asking how have they done in making this great Republic a better place? I am about to give the book to some of my children to read so they can start off with a better appreciation than I had at their age, of what makes this country great and how they can know they are contributing. My favorite part of the book is when John is describing what has happened from the "Greatest Generation" to their children and why. It never hit me as so obvious. But I will let you read it on page 124! Thank you Mr. Andrews. Thanks for sharing the pain, thank you for sharing your stories and thank you for a practical, personal guide for helping fix america before it is too late!

Responsibility Reborn should be required reading for every high school student. Many Americans, especially our youth, view freedom as a “no-strings-attached” right to personal fulfillment. In this book, John Andrews, teaches that freedom is inherently linked to responsibility. Individual liberty coupled with personal responsibility unlocks inherent talents in individuals, fostering cooperation and experimentation that leads to prosperity and true societal success. But there is a “paradox of success”. Andrews explains how success tempts us to ignore responsibility, sowing the seeds of complacency and dependency. A centralized government that bestows “equality” by redistributing wealth did not buoy the United States to strength and prosperity. Freedom of opportunity coupled with responsibility made America special. As citizens, we are required to harness our own desire and talent in the pursuit of happiness. Andrews reminds us that the United States must remain a land where responsible individuals count more than government. Our freedom and America’s greatness depend on it.
