Overview

Each day when Americans awaken, our laws, rules, and regulations grow and become more complex. Thus, each passing the day, the government becomes bigger and more monstrous. Unfortunately, taxes and incarceration rates rise along with the government’s expansion. However, government cannot continually grow at the expense of the economy. A capitalistic country reaches a breaking point, when the economy starts to break down and stagnates. Then a stagnating economy becomes a dangerous time because government claims that capitalism had failed, and it must take over large sections of the economy, fueling and accelerating the stagnation.

This book presents a broad view of the U.S. legal system and defines the relationships between the people, businesses, and their government. The author does not use complicated statistics or high-level economic jargon. This book is written for any intelligent person, who wants to understand why government takes over its economy. This book uses numerous examples and cases from the United States, but these ideas can apply to any country.

    Not my favorite.

    As I read this book it felt like I was talking to my brother. The author discusses loosely related ideas with very few facts to support them.
    Many grammatical errors made it difficult to read.

    Get your facts straight

    This book is lacking many facts. Taxes have only fallen since the 80s and our defecit only has increased. Theonly time we had a surplus since then is when taxes went up in the 90s.

    Social programs are going broke because the Trust Fund that should only be applied to them are being robbed for other spending.

    Get your facts straight, this book is wrong.

    Taxes are at their lowest rate in over 50 years.
