About the Book:What new crisis will the federal government manufacture in order to acquire more power over individuals? What new lies will it tell?
Throughout our history, the federal government has lied to send our children off to war, lied to take our money, lied to steal our property, lied to gain our trust, and lied to enhance its power over us. Not only does the government lie to us, we lie to ourselves. We won’t admit that each time we let the government get away with misleading us, we are allowing it to increase in size and power and decrease our personal liberty.
In acquiescing to the government’s continuous fraudulent behavior, we bear partial responsibility for the erosion of our individual liberties and the ever-expanding federal regulation of private behavior. This book attacks the culture in government that facilitates lying, and it challenges readers to recognize that culture, to confront it, and to be rid of it.

Judge Andrew Napolitano's new Political book is very interesting. He believes that the American people buy into lies pretty easily, and I can't disagree with him. In this book the author talks about 17 lies in particular the biggest and first being"All men are created equal". You can definitely tell by the way he writes that he is a big supporter in the Constitution. Being a political based book I really didn't know why I picked it at first to review because I thought it would be really boring! However, I found the lies that he talks about very captivating.
The lies talked about:
- "All Men Are Created Equal"
- "All Men . . . Are Endowed byTheir Creator with Certain Inalienable Rights"
- "Judges Are Like Umpires"
- "Every Vote Counts"
- "Congress Shall Make No Law . . . Abridging the Freedom of Speech"
- "The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed"
- "Your Body Is Your Temple"
- "The Federal Reserve Shall Be Controlled by Congress"
- "It's Only a Temporary Government Program"
- "I'm from the Government, and I'm Here to Help"
- "We Are Winning the War on Drugs"
- "Everyone Is Innocent Until Proven Guilty"
- "The Constitution Applies in Good Times and in Bad Times"
- "Your Boys Are Not Going to Be Sent into Any Foreign Wars"
- "We Don't Torture"
- "The Right of the People to Be Secure in Their Persons, Houses, Papers, and Effects, Shall Not Be Violated"
- "America Has a Free Market"
