America's best governor Ross Douthat The New York Times offers a plan for limited but effective government before it's too late Governments at every level keep getting bigger yet less effective while the freedoms of individuals continue to be diminished In the meantime our public schools have produced an underprepared workforce mostly ignorant of the rights and responsibilities of free citizens This is exactly what the Founding Fathers feared politicians who would give voters unsustainable benefits at the expense of societ. This book gets 2 stars based primarily on the strength of the final chapter The first 80% of the books is nothing different from the stock and trade Republican Party talking points When I read a book I want to learn something and what he writes about I have heard many time before from various Republican writers and speakers Also the first 200 hundred pages is heavily filled with what is wrong but very shallow on specifics Venom drips from many of his passages referring to Obama's minions and of course we all know who else has minions He particularly heaps ire on what he calls Czarista Kathleen Sibilius He seems to get much inspiration from a Texas novelist whose main character never takes a thing from the government maybe those big corporations shouldn't take any tax breaks He says he has read reams of paper on global warming but he can't make up his mind on itIs he reading tea Party tracts or real environmental science What did I like about the book in the last chapter His ideas on reforming social security and Medicare seem reasonable and he is a Republican who says there might be need for a reevaluation of our military use and possible cuts in spending One final thing he has about 10 charts in the book and he either says nothing about them or 1 or 2 sentences of little value He also has about 15 pages of photos of himself with famous people that have no value whatsoever other than to show he knows Ronald Reagan etc
