This book is about the 17 top lies the government has passed onto the American people including that "all men are created equal", "its only a temporary program", and "I'm the government, and I'm here to help." He discusses how the men and women in government have warped the government to be self serving instead of selfless. He gives many real examples of how laws and authority have been abused and covered up.
I thought the book was eye opening. I always new there were problems with our government, but he did a wonderful job putting face to some of the issues. While I may not feel as strongly about some of the issues as he does, it does show you how some kind of government reform and accountability is necessary.
Overall i enjoyed the book, mostly. I did find the book a little hard to read at times, but that might have just been me.
Note: I was given a complimentary copy of the book to review. this review is my own opinion and I was in way compensated for a good review.
