A must-read : A Government of Wolves

I just came across John W. Whitehead's book, A Government of Wolves - the Emerging American Police State (published in 2013). I'm only to Page 16, but this is a must-read for anyone concerned about his rights, as in his Rights.

This quote leads off Chapter 1: "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." Who said that? Abraham Lincoln!

I'm sure it's no coincidence that I'm reading this on the eve of September 11th. Whitehead hammers the USA Patriot Act. How many of us understand even a small part of it?

Whitehead writes, "The Patriot Act drove a stake through the heart of the Bill of Rights, violating at least six of the Constitution's ten original amendments."

Get this book and read it for yourself. Buy the hardcover edition ($13.72 from Amazon) and start marking it up with Government actions you don't like. You're going to make a mess of the book, but then you can buy another copy.

Right now, click on the link above (the book title). When you get to the Amazon webpage, click on the book cover and read a few pages. That part's free.
