Mother Should I Trust the Government {Book Review and Giveaway}

  This book, Mother Should I Trust the Government, was one I started my "relationship" with having not so good of opinion of. When I first heard about it I thought "That's a weird title" but thought that the content sounded of interest to me. Then I got the book and looked at the back cover and saw that the author had two people who had reviewed his book and one was his mother and the other was his daughter - both with very cheesy reviews. It made you wonder if he couldn't get anybody else to read it. And then I started reading the preface (which is what I normally do) and found it quite dry and really struggled to get through it. But.... After I got to the first chapter things started going much better!

   Mother Should I Trust the Government, The Making and Keeping of Our American Republic by Jake Jacobs PH. D. is about the forming of our country with it's Whig/republican ideals and then our challenges today with progressivism and then on to what we should be doing to protect our country and help in return to the godly principles that it was founded on.

   This book seems to be quite well researched, has a lot of interesting information and is one that I think I may use in the future to read aloud to my kids as a Government class. There are a lot of interesting facts about our founding fathers which is pretty fun. Throughout the book Jake suggests other books for further reading. It was fun to see that we already had several that he mentioned and I look forward to checking out more of them.

    This book reminds us over and over again that our country is supposed to be one that is run by the people. We the people simply need to remember to stand up, get involved and not just let whatever happens, happen. You have a say! Use that right. This is something I feel pretty passionate about and our family is actively involved in politics. I know that not every christian family can be actively involved the way we are but if more would be and if everybody would at least take the time to be informed and vote for christian principles our country would go in a much better direction.

  This book is available to buy on Amazon. I noticed that the Kindle Version is available free.

Sounds like a book I would like to read. I would love to be able to trust the government but unfortunately I don't feel I can at this time.

I have had the enjoyment of reading your blog over the past 4 years. (I found it through a Google search, which is funny because I also live in Minnesota!) My favorite time to visit your blog is when I am feeling a little discouraged and could use a little pick-me-up. That is what happened this past Friday, when the supreme court made their "ruling" on gay marriage. After reading your review, this sounds like book I would enjoy reading, especially in our current society! Thank you for this opportunity, and thank you for your wonderful, godly blog!
