In 1988, while remaining a Republican, Texas Congressman Ron Paul ran for president as the nominee of the Libertarian Party. In 2008 he ran in the Republican primary, arousing a lot of interest but losing to John McCain. In this book he argues that if the United States continues exercising extra-constitutional foreign and domestic policies, we will suffer bankruptcy and possible social collapse. Bob Craig is a convincing, low-key narrator for this sort of thing. His mature, low baritone is articulate, gentle, persuasive, calm, and orderly. There is intensity, but it's mostly in the writing, and even then the combination of author and narrator is soothing, rather than exciting. No rabble-rousing here, just rational common sense.
