Showdown: Confronting Bias, Lies, and the Special Interests That Divide Americaby Larry Elder
Synopses & Reviews
America's battle to regain personal and financial freedom and safety, by the New York Times bestselling author of The Ten Things You Can't Say in America Showdown is a call to arms for a truly free society--one in which the individual both provides for himself and is responsible for his own actions--and a nation that is better defended, more humane, more efficient, and more prosperous. Elder is out to slay entrenched and enmeshed special interest groups, government agencies with the capacity to meddle in Americans' lives and businesses, lawmakers who continue a pattern of outrageous over-taxation, and those who would hamstring us all with good intentions. Showdown shows how the nation would be safer, stronger, and better with less government intervention and how individuals would not only cope but thrive without the so-called social safety net. In a new chapter written for this edition, Larry Elder has been inflaming listeners and influencing debate for nine years at the top of the competitive drive-time radio heap. Larry Elder's straight talk and common-sense solutions spare no one and will inspire his passionate and growing audience.
