Description

New York Times bestselling journalist John Stossel shows how the expansion of government control is destructive for American society.

Politicians--and we voters--can dream of guaranteed incomes or green energy. But the mature response to cries of "Yes, we can " should be "No, we can't"--not when "we" means government. There is nothing that government can do that we cannot do better as free individuals. --John Stossel in No, They Can't

John Stossel debunks the most revered of society's sacred cows in this spirited New York Times bestseller: our belief that government can solve our problems. Stossel insists that we discard the myth of the "perfect" government--left or right--and retrain our brain to rethink our lives as independent individuals in light of such topics as

HEALTH CARE - DEFENSE SPENDING

JOB CREATION - GUN CONTROL

PUBLIC EDUCATION - ENERGY

MINIMUM-WAGE LAWS - CLIMATE CHANGE

THE NATIONAL DEBT - POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

THE ASSAULT ON FOOD . . . and much more.
