It Is Dangerous To Be Right When The Government Is Wrong by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

It Is Dangerous To Be Right When The Government Is Wrong by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano makes you look at some of the real issues that our country has going on right now. If you also ask the big questions about how America is being ran, this is a must read book to give you information on all of the things that are being done – without the right to have done to us.

Book Description
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano examines the concept the government hates and fears the most: Freedom.
The United States of America was born out of a bloody revolt against tyranny. Yet almost from its inception, the government here has suppressed liberty. In his sixth book on the Constitution and human freedom, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano asks: Where does freedom come from? How can government in America exercise power that the people have not given to it? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom?
In this back-to-basics on freedom, Judge Napolitano addresses hard questions:
--Do we still have a Constitution?
--What are the limits to government power in a free society?
--Why does the government attack, rather than defend, our rights?
--If our rights are inalienable, how can the government take them away?
--Do we really own any private property?
The Judge gives a sweeping treatment of natural rights and all the philosophical, religious, and ideological principles that underscore the concept of human freedom.

My Thoughts
It Is Dangerous To Be Right When The Government Is Wrong is a very real and informative book about the government in America. If you think that our country is just taking away our rights for our own benefit, you are sadly mistaken. If you think that nothing is going on right now that isn’t out of the ordinary, you are even more mistaken. If you are an American citizen, you need to read this book before the next election. You may be much less informed than you think.

The author doesn’t just pick on Republicans or Democrats, he criticizes them both equally. Both parties have done things that they shouldn’t have, and he doesn’t hold back on explaining what, either.

Some of his views on things are very controversial, however, he makes strong points on why he thinks certain things should be legal. For instance, he is for legalizing gay marriage, for drugs being legal and even for prostitution being legalized.

Regardless of if you think these things are “right” or “wrong” – is it really the government that should make the decision on if someone wants to smoke marijuana or not? After all, cigarettes and alcohol are legal. The more they take away, the closer they are to taking away something that you enjoy doing “legal” right now that could be made “illegal” one day.

If you want to learn more about what is really going on in our country, or are just concerned about our Constitutional rights, this is a must-read! I highly recommend it.
