In any era, great Americans inspire us to reach our full potential. They know with conviction what they believe within themselves. They understand that all actions have consequences. And they find common sense solutions to the nation’s problems.

 

Thomas Paine was an ordinary man who changed the course of history by penning Common Sense, the concise 1776 masterpiece in which, through his extraordinarily straightforward and indisputable arguments, he encouraged his fellow citizens to take control of America’s future—and ultimately, her freedom.

 

Nearly two and a half centuries later, those very freedoms hang in the balance. And now, Glenn Beck revisits Paine’s powerful treatise with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government’s easy solutions, two-party monopoly, and illogical methods and take back our great country.

    " I really enjoyed Glenn Beck's Common Sense. I loved how he put it into the perspective of our society today. It was really an eye opener! We can't keep avoiding the lies,hypocrisy, and mischief that is taking place in our government today. Glenn Beck brings to light many of those issues and explains how we can use our " Common Sense" in standing up for what is right! I very much recommend this book! "

    " A little to dooms day for my liking. He had no problem listing what was wrong but then what do we do with the information. It seemed to leave me feeling helpless more than inspired. But had some interesting thoughts to ponder about our countries future. "

    " I found some valuable insights in this book. "
