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.
