My Review of Lies the Government Told You

Lies the Government Told You by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

I received this book in the mail from Book Sneeze, a site that gives you free books in order for you to review them. I am very interested in politics, so this book sounded like something that I would enjoy reading.

This isn't the most interesting or easy to read book that I have ever read, but it is very informational, and I am happy to say that I have read it cover to cover. At first I found this book really hard to get through, and then I found it fascinating, and then towards the end I found it hard to finish.

About the Book:

This book is made up of seventeen chapters, each based on one of the lies that the government has given us and expected us to believe. Lies such as “All Men are Created Equal”, “Every Vote Counts”, and “We Don't Torture”. Judge Napolitano shares how the government has broken those promises that they have made and how our government's leaders (regardless of their parties) lie to us for their own gain.

Some May Disagree with....

Judge Napolitano's libertarian type views, such as the belief that marijuana should be legal.

What I Learned from this Book:

I did not realize until I read about it in this book just how bad the Patriot act really is, and just how many of our constitutional rights it helped to take away.

I didn't know that it is illegal for anyone to compete with the post office by offering lower prices for shipping items.

There is more that I learned through this book, but you are going to have to read it and learn the rest for yourself.

My Conclusion: While I did not agree with Judge Napolitano on everything he wrote about in this book, I do think that it is educational and informative, and I am happy that I have read it. I give it a 3 out of 5 stars.
