This book is a must read for everyone regardless of party affiliation - or no party affiliation. While Rand Paul will never be confused with the great authors of our time, he makes a compeling case as to how we are gradually losing our freedoms in the good old U.S.A. at the hands of government. He accentuates the Federal regulatory intrusions and jailings. There are also local and state intrusions. In Montgomery County, Maryland (where I live) it is not legal to install or retrofit double key door locks (dead bolt locks that require a key to lock and unlock from the inside as well as the outside.). These are the only secure dead bolts if the door has any windows proximate to the lock, which is now required to operate inside with a hand activated lever type device; a device which is readily accessable by an intruder by simply breaking the window and reaching around to the inside lever device. Now that's freedom. Feel safer yet?
