Book Review

Glenn Beck's Common Sense

This is Glann Beck's modern day version of Thomas Paine's 1776 publication of Common Sense. Beck looks at six major themes in this book:

  • Reshaping & Redefining of America
  • Money
  • Taxes
  • Political Class
  • Progressivism
  • America Today
The point of the book is to open the eyes of Americans and to see what the government is doing. Evaluate what the politicians are saying and doing and use common sense. If it doesn't seem right then it probably isn't.

The last half of the book is a reprint of Thomas Paine's Common Sense from 1776.

While I understand the purpose of this book, I didn't find anything in it that was new to me.

We do need to return to our roots and take back our government. The family is the backbone of America. We cannot let government destroy it. We need to remember the government works for us; we don't work for it!

After reading Thomas Paine's Common Sense from 1776, I wonder if some of these old American writers could read and understand our language and writings of today.

Overall, unless you are a big Glenn Beck fan (and if you are then you have probably heard him talk about everything in this book already) you can safely skip this back.
