Customer Reviews


If you are thinking about getting this cause you think you've heard of the author or you like the title, STOP thinking and get out of here. This is a book completely about law, and it bores me to tears. Be smart, and kick yourself out of here- for forever. I'm only giving this a one star because I have to rate it. If I had a choice, I'd give it a negative trillion. Thanks for reading, and hopefully thanks for not reading.

@ the other review

The book is categorized under "law" but you were surprised/disappointed that it was actually about law. At least I understand why the title was so appealing to you. Good luck in your search for common sense.


Without Thomas Paine's words of wisdom America could still belong to Europe.
