Overview

When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country by G. Gordon Liddy

G. Gordon Liddy reminds us what we loved about America, back when you could shoot off a firecracker, light up a cigar, or drive fast, and there wasn't a government bureaucrat telling you how to live your life. Liddy sounds an alarm for all freedom-loving Americans, warning that our liberties are being chipped away in the name of good causes, civic convenience and left-wing demagoguery "that there ought to be a law." Liddy also divulges new information in a shocking, tell-all chapter on Watergate-including court documents and crime-scene evidence that shreds Woodward and Bernstein's popular theory to bits.

Great book... but sad ... sad my kids can't go out and play in the neighborhood without neighbors yelling at them for every gosh darn thing .... list of things they have been yelled at for in the past 2 years: Climbing trees riding scooters playing kick the can walking down the street at night ... cutting through a neighbors yard ... playing with air soft guns ... NO WONDER KIDS ARE INSIDE PLAYING VIDEOS GAMES AND SITTING ON THE INTERNET... they can't do anything else !!!

Mr. Liddy makes some interesting and good points, but the bulk of his argument can be summed up as, 'Why can't things just be the way they used to be?' He does point out ways in which the country has strayed somewhat, but he offers no solutions that don't involve use of a time machine. I understand the man's concerns, but I wish he'd stop whining.

A fantastic truthful read. Growing up with Liberal parents, who were always mad about everything, I never had two sides of any coin. I am greatful to Liddy for helping me put things into an honest perspective! (I married a conservative who came from a conservative family....go figure!)

The G-Man does it again! As only he can, G. Gordon Liddy recalls the lessons of the past and applies them to present-day America in this entertaining and compelling masterpiece! This is a must read for every American interested in the past and concerned about the future of the republic!

G. Gordon Liddy never ceases to amaze me. His grasp on the important issues of the day and his strength in his conivictions is admirable. Like him or loathe him, you have to respect him. The GMan will forever be at the top of my list of writers and talk-show hosts.

Once again, G. Gordon Liddy has produced an eloquent description of how American freedom has been slowly attacked without waking the American public. If you want to read a great book that will increase your appetite to change our nation for the better, this book is for you. Long live the G-man!!!

Liddy's great wit and keen style make for an excellent book. He takes many key current issues and presents a cogent case for approaching them with an eye on America's heritage, and how the military, education, environment and even love have been warped in recent years. His humor is ever present and sharp. The appendix on Watergate, and alternative theories as to why the Watergate break-in occured is interesting, but somewhat misplaced in this particular book.
