Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure by Glenn Beck [Audiobook] THE FACTS. THE FUTURE. THE FIGHT TO FIX AMERICA BEFORE ITS TOO LATE. In the words of Harvard historian Niall Ferguson, the United States is an empire on the edge of chaos. Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because weve turned our backs on the Constitution. Yes, our country is financially broke, but thats just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has centralized power at the expense of individual rights. There is a lot of work ahead, but we cant move forward until we first understand how we got here. Starting with the American Revolution, Glenn takes readers on an express train through 234 years of history, culminating with the Great Recession and the bipartisan recklessness of Presidents Bush and Obama. Its the history lesson we all wished wed had in school. (Did you know, for example, that FDR once made a key New Deal policy decision based on his lucky number?) Along the way, youll see how everything you thought you knew about the political parties is a lie, how Democrats and Republicans alike used to fight for minimum government and maximum freedom, and how both parties have been taken over by a cancer called progressivism. By the end, youll understand why no president, no congress and no court can fix this problem alone. Looking toward them for answers is like looking toward the ocean for drinking water it looks promising, but the end result is catastrophic. After revealing the trail of lies that brought us here, Broke exposes the truth about what were really facing. Most people have seen pieces of the puzzle, but very few have ever seen the whole pictureand for very good reason: Our leaders have done everything in their power to hide it. If Americans understood how dire things really are, they would be demanding radical reform right now. Despite the rhetoric, thats not the kind of change our politicians really believe in. Finally, Broke provides the hope that comes with knowing the truth. Once you see what were really up against, its much easier to develop a realistic plan. To fix ourselves financially, Glenn argues, we have to fix ourselves first. That means some serious introspection and, ultimately, a series of actions that will unite all Americans around the concept of shared sacrifice. After all, this generation may not be asked to storm beaches, but we are being asked to do something just as critical to preserving freedom. Packed with great stories from history, chalkboard-style teachable moments, custom illustrations, and Glenn Becks trademark combination of entertainment and enlightenment, Broke makes the case that when youre traveling in the wrong direction, slight course corrections wont cut ityou need to take drastic action. Through a return to individual rights, an uncompromising adherence to the Constitution, and a complete rethinking about the role of government in a free society, Glenn exposes the idea of transformation for the progressive smokescreen that it is, and instead builds a compelling case that restoration is the only way forward.
