Scathing and direct, this book makes a strong and factual case for how this generation's Washington and their uncontrolled spending are putting the next 2 or 3 generations in this nation at great financial peril. Not for the weak hearted, Levin almost pleads to current Americans to read, understand, and follow this book to change the way we are literally spending ourselves to death. The most disturbing aspect of this book is the case he makes for how this country will be spending more on social programs ALONE than the GDP of America within 20 years. Think Black Friday hysteria is bad? Wait until food, shelter, and clothing are in short supply someday unless deemed worthy by the almighty Federals. This one really makes you think.
