What People are Saying About This

Mike Lee

“Few understand the decentralized nature of politics today like Matt Kibbe. In Hostile Takeover, is a must read for anyone trying to understand where the freedom movement is going next.”

Geraldo Rivera

“Matt Kibbe is a warrior for the cause of limited government. He is a citizen activist who makes sense, and his well-researched and passionately argued book is a strong addition to the discussion that will eventually define the constitutional balance between government and people- power.”

Rand Paul

“Matt Kibbe brings an intellectual foundation to the national outcry for limited government. Hostile Takeover proves we come armed and prepared for battle, and that we are prepared to fight in the arena of ideas.”

Glenn Beck

Hostile Takeover is essential reading for anyone looking to understand how individual freedom can prevail in a world of decentralized information. Matt Kibbe and this book provide us all with a roadmap on how to take back our lives, liberties, and responsibilities. ”

Andrew P. Napolitano

“If you want to know how the free market can bring about prosperity when it is free of the heavy hand of government central planners, Matt Kibbe has a gift for you. It is the refreshingly readable Hostile Takeover.

So refreshing to see someone stand up to the Washington establishment.

I was interested in the history of the Tea Party, and this book covers that, as well as the criticisms and mis-reporting that has occurred in the majority media. It isn't an easy read and sometimes I glossed over parts that went on longer than necessary to make a point. Overall, it was good information about the Tea Party and all Americans who should be wary of any Federal Government that would continually takeover our Rights under the U.S. Constitution.
