Overview

In five years, we will really start to wonder what happened to America. In 10 years, our kids won't know the same America of our youth. And in 25 years, we won't recognize America at all. The Constitution will be a relic, tossed on the same heap of living, breathing, ever-changing trash pile as the Bible. The notion of God-given rights will be replaced by government control and privacy rights will have crumbled along with Fourth Amendment guarantees that protect us from warrantless searches of home, possessions, and self. The arrival at this brave new world has been surprisingly quick-paced. Most of the ideological changes have occurred in the past few decades. Police State USA explains how America is standing on the cusp of a police state, what led to this state - including environmental and corporate influences, as well as media spin and lies - and how we might overcome and recapture our freedoms, as envisioned by the Founding Fathers. But it's not too late to reverse the police state.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
06/15/2014
Journalist Chumley (Washington Times) sets forth an aggressive and brisk case that the federal government, and the Obama administration in particular, has been steadily eroding constitutionally guaranteed liberties. The author covers everything from National Security Agency (NSA) wiretapping to overly aggressive local policing methods in a manner that is accessible. However, while a persuasive plea is made, particularly in regard to disturbingly aggressive law enforcement tactics, it is often watered down by the book's excessively wide scope; the author covers too many topics, providing little more than information that is widely available from other news sources. The extremely partisan tone also dilutes the effect of the material, especially when more balanced titles, such as Russ Feingold's While America Sleeps, are available. Chumley's excoriation of government overreach may be well served, but her glossing over of abuses by the private sector and selective outrage make the book fall short of convincingly making that argument. VERDICT Even if the partisan tone may turn some casual readers off, the timely subject matter and accessible writing may create interest from readers of topical nonfiction. But overall, while this will speak to the choir effectively enough, it will likely create few converts.—Ben Neal, Richland Lib., Columbia, SC
