LIES THE GOVERNMENT TOLD YOU by Judge Andrew P Napolitano

Lies the Government told you, Myth, Power, and Deception in American History by Judge Andrew P Napolitano, with foreward by Congressman Ron Paul.

From the very beginning , it seems our governing forefathers had one set of rules for the 'masses' and another set of rules for themselves. Judge Napolitano uses 17 chapters, starting with Lie #1-'All men are Created Equal', to explain how the people were told one thing,when it was completely different for the ones in control. It gives examples of how the Government, be it Local, State, or Federal pretty much can twist things around to give themselves the upper hand.

Chapter #14-'Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars' has personal meaning for me, because my dad actually discussed how we ended up in WWII, and that he knew before Pearl Harbor being bombed, that it was coming, because of the way our government was handling things.

Judge Napolitano has really outdone himself. This is a book that I'll keep and reread many times, and use it as reference material. It isn't light reading, but it is very interesting, and it makes you think.

I was not paid for this review, and all opinions expressed are my own. I was provided with a free copy to read and review.

This sounds like a great book! I am a history buff....and really, don't you always wonder when you watch the political news what they are REALLY doing? Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but I know they can't be telling us the whole story......
