Summary
Politicians may be sleazy and spineless, but they're not stupid. The candidate who tells the people what they want to hear is usually the one who wins-- facts be damned. The only way to break the cycle is to understand why Americans fall for the deception over and over again. Beck reveals the startlingly simple answer: fear. Progressives from both parties exploit this by offering solutions that are based on two things: lies, and an unrelenting hunger for power and control
Summary
The controversial radio and TV host and best-selling author of Arguing With Idiots presents a scathing critique of progressivism that traces its history and what he believes are the dangers it poses to the future
