Great book for women trying to learn about politics

Fun, fast and informative read. Not boring like a lot of political books can be. Sean also backs all of his ideas and points with facts so it doesn't come off as right-wing opinions. The book also lays out some very important things to consider if you really want to keep yourself and America safe from terrorism. It will help you understand the very real dangers that exist in your everyday world.

Think for Yourself
I am not a democrat or republican, because I decided long ago I would think for myself and not form with the platform of one of the parties. I read this book as a favor to my mother-in-law, who is a very strong republican, and because I am going to watch Fahrenheit 9/11...
I am not a democrat or republican, because I decided long ago I would think for myself and not form with the platform of one of the parties. I read this book as a favor to my mother-in-law, who is a very strong republican, and because I am going to watch Fahrenheit 9/11 so I figured it was only fair to hear both sides. However, every page seemed to only anger me more than the previous one already had. I found it extremely insulting, which is sad considering I am not even a part of the democratic party of whom he never missed a beat to tear down and morally condemn. I do consider myself as more of a passive person when it comes to war. And somehow, this view of compassion, automatically means I embrace terrorism and evil. Now I wouldn't ever say there isn't a lot of evil in the world but Hannity continuously says that because I'm more liberal, I do just that. Like we all live in this little make believe world. Just because we're not a Republican doesn't mean we don't see what's going on in the world. We just think a different approach might save more innocent lives. What is wrong with not wanting to see more innocent people die? Why am I condoning evil because I think that killing more innocent people in search of those who killed our innocents may not be the best solution. I'm sorry, but I found this continuous reminder very offensive. I do believe there is a time for war but that definitely doesn't mean I will ever support a leader who is eager to jump into it for his own personal reasons and use the grief and anger from something as tragic as 9/11 or the Holocaust to cover this personal agenda. The fact that he claims it is for the American people and tries to call those who don't support it cowards makes me ill. I found his constant remarks that every Demacratic leader has failed the american people, and basically saying that all Republican presidents were saints, quite hysterical. I also find it interesting that he continuously states Bush has the American people's best interest in mind, and yet what is he doing to help us. Maybe Bush should try to make jobs for the thousands of unemployed. Maybe he should try to help our struggling economy. Maybe he should stop letting foreign imports dissolve what's left of hard working laborers in our country. And maybe he should stop trying to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. The worst thing about the book is the fact that it just drips with hypocracy. Hannity repeatedly says that all Democrats actions are purely for political gain, when that is in fact all his book is for. He hides it well at first, but it always comes back to vote for Bush, do the 'morally correct' thing. Plus he states over and over how as a Christian, he thinks evil needs to be stopped. I'm a Christian and I don't have the urge to kill anyone I think is 'evil'. But what mostly disturbed me was that I have a hard time believing he is a good, loving Christian when he clearly states how he despises anyone who isn't a Republican and has a different opinion as him. Doesn't seem that he lives or thinks in a Christian mindset but rather becomes just like the people he opposes throughout the his whole book, using it for political gain rather than truly caring about the cause. He is clearly a hypocrit and definitely needs to stop condemning everyone who doesn't allow Republicans to shove their beliefs down their throats. Hannity, Stop being a sheep and think for yourself.
