9781455522750: Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans Are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds

Government regulations are out of control. They dictate how much water goes into your commode, and how much water comes out of your showerhead. They determine how hot the water needs to be in your washing machine, and how many miles to the gallon your car must achieve. Since the Patriot Act, your banking records, your gun registration, and your phone bill are easily accessible by government snoops. Mothers are arrested for buying raw milk. Families are fined for selling bunny rabbits without a license. Home and property owners are strapped with obscene fines, entangled in costly legal messes, and sent to federal prison, all for moving dirt from one end of their land to another. Unelected bureaucrats, armed with arbitrary rules and no need to back them up, stonewall and attack American citizens at every turn. The damage can be overwhelmingly taxing---financially, emotionally and even physically.

And who is being held accountable? Government regulation and red tape run amok in Washington, and honest, tax-paying citizens are the victims of an administration's misuse and abuse of power. Now, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, takes an in-depth look at the legislation that is trampling the rights of ordinary citizens, strangling their ability to conduct private, everyday activities without egregious government interference. He highlights outrageous searches, seizures and arrests, and points to thousands of regulations that have been added to the books since Obama took office. Most importantly, he charts a direction out of this mess, and toward renewed freedom for all Americans.

These stories are of everyday Americans badgered and harassed by their own government---the very institution that is supposed to serve us all. This gross breach of our constitution is as frightening as it is real, and GOVERNMENT BULLIES is a call to action against it.

Review:



Praise for The Tea Party Goes to Washington:

"An exciting and needed call to change for all Americans"
--- Sarah Palin

"Senator Paul has given us a blueprint for limited government that would make Jefferson estatic...the Senator speaks in words we understand with conviction we all admire and an understanding of the issues that is breathtaking."?Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Senior Judicial Analyst, Fox News Channel

Book Description Little, Brown Company, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. 211 x 147 mm. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Since being elected to the US Senate in 2010, Rand Paul has been in the forefront of a number of debates and has drafted legislation investigating government wrongs that are regularly being perpetrated against ordinary citizens through misuse and abuse of power. In this book he discusses the many outrageous searches, seizures and arrests that are being unconstitutionally brought upon good, honest tax-paying citizens due to out-of-control government regulations. GOVERNMENT BULLIES is a book with many stories to tell-stories that are hard to believe. It s taking a U.S. Senator to use the power of his office to show all of us the insanity that is taking place in this country: mothers are being arrested for buying raw milk; farmers are being arrested for moving dirt on their own land-for moving dirt! The Gibson guitar company was raided by armed Federal Marshalls and the factory was shut down for using ebony that was purchased from Madagascar to be used in the crafting of their guitars; a family was fined $90,000 by the USDA for selling bunnies without a license!This is our United States of America running amok because thousands upon thousands of regulations have been added to the books since Obama took office and nobody is regulating the regulators. The America people are struggling enough during this financial crisis-and adding this kind of unconstitutional abuse to law-abiding citizens is a travesty-one that Senator Paul intends to stop.
