Wake Up, America!

It is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government is Wrong
Andrew Napolitano

Judge Napolitano’s basic views are well known because of his role with Fox News.  It doesn’t take long to realize his anti-big government views.  While this book is not a religious book per se, the underlying principles to which Napolitano subscribed are decidedly biblical. 

The Judge’s critics, including compassionate Christians, sometimes decry the position that mitigates the government’s role in social welfare.  But he is correct that it is not the government’s responsibility to dole out to the needy.  That responsibility is clearly delineated in scripture to belong to families and churches.  Government seems to invade any vacuum created when responsible parties abdicate their assignments. 

I continue to see the overreach of all branches of government.  The rapid growth of government over the past few decades is frightening and is a great contributor to the social and economic woes we experience in our current culture.

Our nation is sliding down the slippery slope created by an overspending government.  Those who speak out against the wrongs in our government will increasingly be targeted for censure or destruction.  I have personally witnessed an abusive government multiple times and seeing the trend to become worse.

I strongly recommend this book and hope that Napolitano continues to warn this nation about evils created by an immoral and bloated government.
