Publisher's Summary

The facts.
The future.
The fight to fix America - before it's too late.
In the words of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the United States is “an empire on the edge of chaos.” Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because we’ve turned our backs on the Constitution.
Yes, our country is financially broke, but that’s just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has centralized power at the expense of individual rights.
There is a lot of work ahead, but we can’t move forward until we first understand how we got here. Starting with the American Revolution, Glenn takes readers on an express train through 234 years of history, culminating with the Great Recession and the bipartisan recklessness of Presidents Bush and Obama. It’s the history lesson we all wished we’d had in school. (Did you know, for example, that FDR once made a key New Deal policy decision based on his lucky number?)
Along the way, you’ll see how everything you thought you knew about the political parties is a lie, how Democrats and Republicans alike used to fight for minimum government and maximum freedom, and how both parties have been taken over by a cancer called ��progressivism.” By the end, you’ll understand why no president, no congress and no court can fix this problem alone.

First Beck Book Read

What did you love best about Broke?

I really loved how in the beginning of the book Beck talks about the Romans and there government. How the policies of finance lead to fall of a great empire. Then to detail the fiscal policy, in short, of each president from the first to the last; a great relation.

What did you like best about this story?

Again, it was the beginning.

Which character – as performed by Glenn Beck and Brian Sack – was your favorite?

Glenn Beck. I love hearing him talk.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book definitely gave me a better insight to the polices of President and how debt really is crushing America.

Everyone should read this book

Glen Beck is very informative, clear and issues our country a challenge to fix what has somehow went off our rightful path. Simply put and easy to understand. Though the truth isn't always pleasant to hear, it does open one's eyes to possibilities. Thank you

Amazing arguments

Well written but far fetched argumentation – at least from a European perspektive. Religion is the start and the end of any discussion.
