The truth

The hard truth about entitlements and the need for accountability. The weaklings won't like it!

Total Rubbish

Wow! Mr. Anderson seems to think that by being opinionated will make him (and you) right. This neo-conservative diatribe is the absolute worst advice I can imagine. His nostalgic longing for the past that never existed is gag provoking. If you have a soft spot in your heart for Dick Cheney you will love this book. I hope all my competitors read this book. There may be good points in here, but the author's paternalistic scolding gets in the way.

Ranting!

I agreed with most of the beginning and absolutely respect political views at variance with mine, it challenges my thinking and sharpens my cognitive saw! However, a lot of this book is an angry rant. I was disappointed and cannot rate until I have listened to it again! Hummmm!
