Disappointing. He did not even talk about the limitations on Federal power in the Constitution and seems to think that actions taken contrary to those limitations are okay. I would describe the author as a fiscally conservative democrat who does not really believe in a limited role for the federal government. He differs from democrats only in his support for Christian values. He has a very limited understanding of libertarian principles--limited to the adverse effects of excessive taxation, regulation, and spending.
His general conclusions are repeated throughout the book without much support. He thinks the country would be better off if both social conservatives and libertarians agreed with him. I do not think it necessary for members of the Republican party to suppress their differences. I certainly cannot agree with Mr. Berkewitz' view of the proper role of government.
