THE BOOK

If you listen carefully, virtually every political debate is about control. Whether the debate is in a coffee shop, on the floor in Congress or in the media, it is about control.

Who has control over the money you earn? You, or the government? Who has control over the property you own? You, or the government? Who takes control of your worldly goods when you pass on? You heirs, or the government?

The Government Shepherds herd us and shear us, and swear they are doing it because they love sheep. After you finish this book, you should know better.
