the truth hurts. not sure why if you do not like obamas politics you are considered racist and a far right extremist. i am neither. this is an honest look at what this administration has done, right under our noses. regardless of your political afffiliation you need to know how his policies are dividing this country more than ever and the price you and your kids will pay.

"gangster goverment" is very hard to to put down. the arthur has documented the many promises that president obama has made to the american people and has not kept them and the book also shows how he has totally ignorned the constition and goes into great detail to use the american tax dollors to bail out the gm and chrysler car companys went they went out of bussiness and there is also great research into the many tzars that were not approved by congress but have so much leadership over our country this book would make a great gift idea for a friend or family member

Freddoso has compiled a serious list of charges, and has provided adequate empirical support for some and circumstantial support for the others. Whether you voted for "O" or not (and I did), the material deserves careful consideration as the next election gets closer.

This book is so carefully documented and fact checked it is difficult to ignore what we as citizens are facing today with big government. A MUST READ!

David Freddoso sounds a warning about the changing role of government in his new book, Gangster Government. He describes the policies, laws and tactics that have already reshaped interactions between citizens and their government. Beginning with the auto bailout, he reports the facts in a journalistic and engaging style. He draws on his prowess as a reporter to explore Obama's relationship with unions, his questionable treatment of political opponents and the Administration's sustained efforts to undercut the political process. While clearly not a fan of the Obama Administration, Freddoso uses factual information to reveal some deeply disturbing events. This book is not a political rant, but a well-crafted wake up call!

A "must read" before the 2012 election. Looks like Chicago politics deserve the bad reputation they've held for decades.
