Book Review: Lies The Government Told You – Myth, Power & Deception In American History

Lies the Government told YouTitle: Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power, and Deception in American History

Author: Judge Andrew P. Napolitano {Foreword by Ron Paul}

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

What new crisis will the federal government manufacture in order to acquire more power over individuals? What new lies will it tell?

Throughout our history, the federal government has lied to send our children off to war, lied to take our money, lied to steal our property, lied to gain our trust, and lied to enhance its power over us. Not only does the government lie to us, we lie to ourselves. We won’t admit that each time we let the government get away with misleading us, we are allowing it to increase in size and power and decrease our personal liberty.

In acquiescing to the government’s continuous fraudulent behavior, we bear partial responsibility for the erosion of our individual liberties and the ever-expanding federal regulation of private behavior. This book attacks the culture in government that facilitates lying, and it challenges readers to recognize that culture, to confront it, and to be rid of it.

 My Review:

All too often, we take what our government tells us as fact. But most of the time it is no where near the truth. When I decided to review this book, I knew the government hardly ever gives it to us straight.

With just under 20 lies the government passes off as truths, Judge Napolitano backs up each claim of lying with the actual truth and facts that proves he knows what he is talking about.

I completely recommend this book to everyone – we all need to realize the US Government is not a goodie goodie who can not tell a lie. Face the facts and learn about whats true or not.
