"It is little wonder that Guy is a card-carrying Libertarian given his beliefs in freedom, choice and power to the citizens. We Libertarians tend to be straight shooters. Guy goes after the other type of politico -- those who congenitally lie to enact their agendas. Shooting the Bull rips the lid off their magic act. Anyone who reads this book will see how they have been hoodwinked in the past, and will recognize the deceit and deception in the future. This book puts the power back in the citizens' hands ... and that is a good start."
-- Wayne Allyn Root, the 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee, author of The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts
About the Author
To say Smith has led an eclectic life is akin to assuming that China is a little overpopulated. In various eras Smith has been a cowboy and a surfer (even on the same day), worked for NASA, held guru status in the computer industry and earned a dime as a marketing strategist. A Southern gent by birth and upbringing, Smith ambled from one coast to another, temporarily halting in Georgia, Florida, Virginia and California.
Politically speaking, Smith is a "libertarian with a foreign policy." As a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, he claims to have genetically acquired a predisposition toward freedom and enforcing the same, primarily by dressing down politicians in the process. He is on record telling a former Congressman, "Once elected, you're my employee and my whipping boy."
Aside from writing both non-fiction and fiction, Smith contributes Op/Ed pieces to major metropolitan newspapers (San Francisco Chronicle and the Oakland Tribune among others). He has published hundreds of magazine articles and appears with appalling frequency on talk radio programs. He has been an invited presenter and speaker at multiple Gun Rights Policy Conferences and the Libertarian Party national convention.
Smith is also the author of Gun Facts (GunFacts.info), the standard desk reference for debunking gun control myths which NRA News host Cam Edwards referred to as "indispensible." You can keep up with Smith's philosophical and comical observations at GuySmith.org.
