A review by Zach Foster
Glenn Beck’s Common Sense is a fascinating read that takes American thinkers on a journey back to 1776, and through political and social events outlining the alteration and nullification of Constitutional law and the American principles outlined by the National Founders. The book covers a multitude of issues that have only been exacerbated in recent years: the rising national debt, crooked politicians, outsourcing, and both major parties being completely out of touch with the American people.
This book is highly recommended to readers from all over the political spectrum, since it is very thought provoking, well reasoned, and Beck substantially backs up his arguments. Furthermore, unlike Beck’s television and radio programs, this book is surprisingly non-partisan and level-headed. The foundation of all arguments in this book is Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and his grievances against Great Britain, nothing more. The book also contains the original Common Sense in its entirety, all for a low price. This book is well worth reading.
