My god, what a terrible book. I've never seen so many historical inaccuracies, distortions, and outright lies before in my life. The author claims that he wants to restore America to its Constitutional roots, but then the book focuses on how the United States is essentially unsalvageable at this point and will inevitably collapse in a coming apocalypse, and he lays out a vague plan for establishing what is essentially a communist theocracy afterwards, and has the gall to label it as "Constitutional." He even makes subtle hints towards endorsing genocide by saying that there is a constant need to "cleanse" society of transgressors.

If this is the sort of garbage the fuels the Tea Party, I can see why they're so crazy. -_-
