    I am torn between loving and hating this book Judge Napolitano clearly explains important premises of constitutional law and makes very good points about the hypocrisy of our constitutional system but then makes bizarre leaps of logic to justify his conservative libertarian agendaI give major props to Judge Napolitano for criticizing severe governmental abuses of power like the trampling of the 5th Amendment by destroying the meaning of public use when the government takes your property and his clear denunciation of the use of torture by the government against terroristsHowever Judge Napolitano strange and bizarre beliefs about State's Rights border on treasonous Firstly his bizarre attack against the 17th Amendment is disturbing He argues that allowing the direct election of Senators is unconstitutional because it strikes at two of the core values of the Constitution representation of state legislatures in a bicameral legislature and the States' check and balance against Federal power However his argument that The 17th Amendment disenfranchises States is a deeply flawed argument that can be refuted with just a bit of historical knowledge First his logic fails because the constitution allows amendments and the 17th Amendment was passed by 36 States out of 48 and only Utah voted against it The constitution is a social contract and the social contract can be changed by the procedure agreed upon when it was originally adopted The only time a change of this nature would be repugnant to the constitution would be a complete change from a representative and democratic form of government ie electing a king for life dissolving Congress and permanently suspending habeaus corpus Tweaking the system to move closer towards direct democracy is a move in a positive direction Second the old system of electing Senators was profoundly broken Politically bound state legislatures failed to elect Senators; for example Delaware failed to elect Senators from September 1839 to January 1841 It is also important to note that 29 states were already electing Senators directly by procedural means when the 17th Amendment passed Only fringe leftists and rightists seriously believes that direct election of either the President or the Senate has undermined our constitutionLastly his screed against Abraham Lincoln on page 246 as a tyrant is so unbalanced from a historical point of view that it would be laughable if it didn't echo letters to the editor from the 1860sIn conclusion I liked this book even with its serious flaws Because of the logical philosophical and historical errors I would only recommend this book to close minded die hard Republicans who think that everything the USA does is right or to savvy lawyershistorianspoliticians who need to know how modern libertarians and republicans think

    It's good to read the works of a legal analyst who is no mere pundit and actually has significant judicial experience Judge Napolitano a libertarian provides plenty to consider regarding the current state of our laws and constitutional history and rallies readers to be aware and wary of governmental paternalismWhile some of his views are ripe for heated debate on successfully interpreting the Second Amendment to the Constitution for example he does challenge readers to really think broadly and deeply about our current American reality versus the common mythologies that we have digested since childhood and almost unuestioningly accepted as gospelThe further you read along in this book the Napolitano reveals the frightening world we've inherited from our ruling classMust read chapters are those aboutthe loss of our gold monetary standard and the Federal Reserve being the creation and sole domain of private bankers who run the country to this day; personal income taxation representation seemingly immaterial to the tentacles of power as originally a temporary measure of the Civil War unapologetically revisited during the First World War solidified with the Sixteenth Amendment and resurrected for good yet again during the Second World War; going to war from flawed domino theories to our Prohibition on drugs;the damning incontrovertible cases against the Bush administration for subverting the Constitution to justify a self proclaimed war and profoundly illegal uses of torture;the not so free as you thought US market economy and the financial collapse of the last few years;and the irrefutable unconstitutionality of the so called Patriot Act that Bush beueathed to the nation and that Obama the civil rights minded attorney has astoundingly maintained as law without even any remote sign of redressuotables There is only one reason that the government takes away freedoms Freedom is an obstacle tothe lust to dominate Andrew NapolitanoWe have one party the Big Government Party There is a Republican version that assaults our civil liberties and loves deficits and war and a Democratic version that assaults our commercial liberties and loves wealth transfers and taxes Andrew NapolitanoIf the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their moneythe banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless Thomas Jefferson

    Judge Andrew P Napolitano does not believe that the government is anyone’s friend In his latest book Lies The Government Told You he takes his readers on a very informative journey in exposing various lies that he believes Americans have bought into A little unsettling is Napolitano’s warning on page 295 that his readers should be very careful when reading THIS book because it could set someone up to be monitored by the government for suspicious behavior I can only imagine that if merely reading a book like this makes one a target in the government’s eyes how much incriminating it must be to WRITE a book like this? The author seems to truly know his stuff so I’m sure he thought long and hard before putting himself out there and exposing this information If you’re not into politics then this book might not hold your interest It’s a pretty deep read with tons of facts and informationThe author writes about seventeen lies one of them being “all men are created eual” American history buffs will already be well aware that four out of the first five American Presidents George Washington included owned slaves However what about the The Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment which gives the government the right to take away private property for “public use”? This includes YOUR home even if you’ve paid it off What about Populism and Progessivism? When did these views develop and how have they affected our current government? Why is FEMA so disorganized and chaotic? And why are they still allowed to operate though FEMA has proven to be unprepared and severely lacking in disaster response? What about the 40 billion dollars a year taken from American taxpayers and used to foot the bill for the war on drugs? In the midst of a failing economy why are Americans forced to continue to pay for these types of ineffective programs?Lie #12 is “Everyone Is Innocent Until Proven Guilty” Napolitano shows example after example of how the government has wrongly accused convicted and imprisoned innocent Americans and gotten away with itNot only does the author cover historical events like the founding of our country and Pearl Harbor – he also addresses current events like the General Motors bailout comparing it to the near failure of Amtrak in 1971Interesting thought provoking and definitely for those who agree with Napolitano’s view of the government

    The Judge delivers a solid verdict in this book as he often does in his other works A good read which covers a lot of aspects in US history where the Government has worked against the interests of the individual and society A good starting point to help inspire further readingI do also recommend the Judge as a writer85 %

    “Freedom is the default position Everything the government does takes away some of our freedom That's why we have a constitution to restrain the government” Judge Andrew Napolitano “Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it's wrong” Dr Ron Paul “I have certain rules I live by my first rule I don't believe anything the government tells me” George Carlin “We don't create governments just so we can have a government We create government to secure individual rights When governments are destructive to those ends we have the right to alter or abolish them including redrawing their arbitrary border lines When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for us to make such changes after the rebellion you see in retrospect how nationalism is only useful insofar as it advances freedom When it does not government is the cancer and revolution is the only cure” Austin PetersenThe largest and the fastest growing religion in the world is not what we all think of as a traditional religion It's not Christianity it's not Islam it's not Scientology and it's not even the militant Church of Atheism The largest and the fastest growing religion in the world is the Church of Statism the worship of the state where subservience and conformity to the government are the main doctrinesThis book will definitely trigger statist militants from both sides of the political spectrum “We have one Big Government Party It has a Republican wing that prefers war deficits assaults on civil liberties and corporate welfare; and a Democratic wing that prefers war taxes assaults on commercial liberties and individual welfare Neither wing is devoted to the Constitution”The United States has been the beacon of freedom since the late 18th Century but the the government adopted and integrated the Old World ideologies of warfare and welfare statism the it violates what the Founding Fathers had fought for This book is than just about libertarianism it's about the true history of the American government

    The government has a long its entire? history of capitulating to the rich the aristocratic the slavers and the multination corporations and monopolies Yes yes it doesGet rid of the governmentOh for fuck's sake NoWe need democracy not to replace corporate inverted totalitarianism check Woldin or Chomsky for starters with overt corporate fascism corporations are simply unchecked and the contract rules and I would remind you that slavery began in contracts or worse yet libertarian anarchism see the Third Reich's treatment of certain conuered lands re Black Earth by Timothy Snyder You twit Meh I find it's pretty easy to agree with almost any politically active person on what bad shit is happening basically everyone hates the way the country works right now; it's the reasons those things are bad and even so the solutions to it that divide And I wouldn't touch this guy with a 39 12 foot pole Cause yeah he's a Grinch

  8. Bryan Bryan says:

    I don't know if I liked it is the correct way to respond to a book of this nature The information is good but very disheartening There is little to enjoy but it is important to make much of this information available The author shows how the federal government from almost the beginning has been grabbing power that it was never intended to have He mentions plenty of figures from both major political parties and covers people from the founding of the country to the present He condemns the actions of multiple branches of government as well and non federal agencies such as the federal reserve He criticizes people like Obama and Bush but also people like Lincoln and Hamilton and shows how their actions increased the power of the federal government by taking away power from the states and individualsIt is very easy to be pessimistic after reading this book Worthwhile read but frustrating read

  9. Daniel Daniel says:

    Legal history is interesting Some parts are extremely disturbing As usual the judge has ample court cases and historical records to draw on for his conclusions

    Given the topic I wasn't expecting an action packed fun ride but it lacked entertainment value even for its genre Just kind of eh
