Summary

You've been lied to by the government. We shrug off this fact as an unfortunate reality. America is the land of the free, after all. Does it really matter whether our politicians bend the truth here and there? When the truth is traded for lies, our freedoms are diminished and don’t return. In Lies the Government Told You, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how America’s freedom, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, has been forfeited by a government more protective of its own power than its obligations to preserve our individual liberties.

Great book

If you like Ron Paul this book will appeal to you. If you still think there is any hope in either Democrats or Republicans doing what is right then this book will just annoy you. Read it anyway. If there is the potential for men like Ron Paul or Andrew Napolitano having an influence on the national political stage then there still might be a glimmer of hope that things could get better.

Over the top in places but still good

Generally, I enjoyed the book and learned many things.

That being said, before buying this book, you should know: Napolitano is an ardent libertarian, 2)he is, to put it mildly, opinionated 3)in at least one instance, maybe two, in my opinion, his opinions "border" on conspiracist 3)some people will be offended by his treatment of Lincoln and other publicly revered persons - he ignores the tension Lincoln felt between his desire to see an end to slavery and his desire to save the union, saying (incorrectly) that he [Lincoln] was not concerned about slavery prior to the war - he also calls him a tyrant due to his actions re; the press during the War (actually, I'd agree on the latter, but still, some people don't like their idols torn down, so i am warning you) and finally, the Judge seems to use the argument of state's rights when it is convenient and the argument against state's rights when that is convenient.

Nevertheless, with those caviats, I highly recommend the book. You may not agree with Napolitano's opinions but the book is quite helpful for understanding the thinking behind libertarianism and those who believe original intent. It may even convince you.
