When I read that chapter in the book I could feel the temperature around me rising, and by rising temperature I'm referring to the boiling heads of the hard left with their constant support of the teacher unions. The fact is that the teacher unions are beyond dangerous and I don't know if the country can be saved. Not a person on the face of the earth could have addressed this issue better than Neal Boortz. He should be given a medal for his relentless attacks against this powerful organization that will undoubtedly destroy the future of this great nation. I have no doubt that the teacher union part of this book will cause an uproar all over the United States. Neal Boortz will be fending off the teacher unions for the rest of his life for what he has said in this book. If for some reason you don't want to buy this book because you hate people like Neal, buy it for this portion!!
With Neal being a Libertarian he has very strong feelings regarding the freedom of individuals and the value of the choices that we make throughout our life. Another fantastic chapter is why all drugs should be legal and the "War on Drugs" is a complete failure. All of the money (it would actually take much less) used for it should be put into treatment programs instead of putting non-violent criminals behind bars.Read more ›
Boortz hates the "government school system". He believes they are a bigger danger to the U.S than Al Qaeda. His reasoning behind hating government schools is merited, but to say it is more dangerous than Al Qaeda is quite a stretch. Boortz admits at the end of his book he does not know much about terrorism or Muslims. He does offer a list of books to help the reader to better understand the "Religion of Peace".
Some of his ideas do seem to be out in some far off reality. There is no way there will be a school voucher system in coming years. Democrats and teacher unions will never allow it to happen. I do agree with Boortz competition makes everything better. Many people who believe capitalism is a great sin would kindly disagree with my last statement. Boortz also goes into the "right" to vote issue. There are many issues covered in his book appealing to the above mentioned groups. I believe he is right when saying his greatest critics are the religious fanatics. There is no doubt in my mind he gets lambasted when he says homosexuals should be allowed to be in a civil union, or abortion really is a choice for the woman not government to make.
I did realize when reading his book many of the issues like abortion, prayer in schools, homosexuality, creation vs. evolution, and flag burning come down to people making their own choices.Read more ›
What I liked most about this book is that Boortz does not neatly fall into either major political party. He is definitely a conservative, but in the libertarian sense. As a result, his views on evolution, abortion, gay rights, and even flag burning are not consistent with those of most Republicans. But I think they are consistent with someone who cares deeply about individual liberty and personal freedom.
This is not to say that Boortz doesn't choose sides here. He's much more supportive of the Republicans than the Democrats. Still, unlike many political commentators, he is unafraid to criticise both parties on important issues. In the end, Boortz's governing philosophy is his belief in the power of the individual, and his dislike of welfare dependence. This is a perspective that doesn't get as much media exposure as it deserves in the mainstream media.
If your politics are libertarian-leaning, you will probably enjoy SOMEBODY'S GOTTA SAY IT. But even if they're not, this is a good down-to-earth introduction to the libertarian mindset. I enjoyed it. My only regret was that this book wasn't released during the holiday season; it would have made a nice gift.
