Overview

Government regulations are out of control. They dictate how much water goes into your commode, and how much water comes out of your showerhead. They determine how hot the water needs to be in your washing machine, and how many miles to the gallon your car must achieve. Since the Patriot Act, your banking records, your gun registration, and your phone bill are easily accessible by government snoops. Mothers are arrested for buying raw milk. Families are fined for selling bunny rabbits without a license. Home and property owners are strapped with obscene fines, entangled in costly legal messes, and sent to federal prison, all for moving dirt from one end of their land to another. Unelected bureaucrats, armed with arbitrary rules and no need to back them up, stonewall and attack American citizens at every turn. The damage can be overwhelmingly taxing---financially, emotionally and even physically.

And who is being held accountable? Government regulation and red tape run amok in Washington, and honest, tax-paying citizens are the victims of an administration's misuse and abuse of power. Now, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, takes an in-depth look at the legislation that is trampling the rights of ordinary citizens, strangling their ability to conduct private, everyday activities without egregious government interference. He highlights outrageous searches, seizures and arrests, and points to thousands of regulations that have been added to the books since Obama took office. Most importantly, he charts a direction out of this mess, and toward renewed freedom for all Americans.

These stories are of everyday Americans badgered and harassed by their own government---the very institution that is supposed to serve us all. This gross breach of our constitution is as frightening as it is real, and GOVERNMENT BULLIES is a call to action against it.

    Excellent book to read for those who wish to learn more about go

    Excellent book to read for those who wish to learn more about government regulations and how "unelected" officials are using their interpretations of our laws to go after law-abiding American citizens and take away their monies and properties - all in the name of out-of-control government regulations. Also good insight as to Senator Rand Paul and how he's fighting for every American to change Washington.

    Important for anyone who values freedom

    My respect for Rand Paul jumped several notches with this book. He shows how the EPA, FDA, USDA and other government agencies are above & beyond the law, and how officials at these agencies implement their megalomaniacal lust for power. Hopefully, this book will help to END these agencies. Not reform them; END them.

    A must read!

    The control over the citizenry of this country by unelected government officials is appalling to say the least. Senator Paul points out in his book the overreach of a bloated bureaucracy that needs to be constrained. If we are ever to have our republic back, we need to downsize this machine we call government to allow people their freedoms to live and prosper!

    Interesting book

    The book held my interest and gave me insight to a few goals the Tea Party is trying to do. It just gave me insight.

    Typical politician

    The author points out a lot of problems but doesn't have much in the line of solutions.
