Item Description...
Overview
"It ain't so much the things we don't know that get us into trouble, nineteenth-century humorist Josh Billings remarked. "It's the things we know that just ain't so." In this bold and brilliantly argued book, acclaimed author and talk-radio host Michael Medved zeroes in on ten of the biggest fallacies that millions of Americans believe about our country-in spite of incontrovertible facts to the contrary. In The 10 Big Lies About America, Medved pinpoints the most pernicious pieces of America-bashing disinformation that pollute current debates about the economy, race, religion in politics, the Iraq war and other contentious issues. The myths that Medved deftly debunks include: Myth: The United States is uniquely guilty for the crime of slavery and based its wealth on stolen African labor. Fact: The colonies that became the United States accounted for, at most, 3 percent of the abominable international slave trade; the persistence of slavery in America slowed economic progress; and the U.S. deserves unique credit for ending slavery. Myth: The alarming rise of big business hurts the United States and oppresses its people. Fact: Corporations played an indispensable role in building America and corporate growth has brought progress that benefits all with cheaper goods and better jobs. Myth: The Founders intended a secular, not Christian, nation. Fact: Even after ratifying the Constitution, fully half the state governments endorsed specific Christian denominations. And just a day after approving the First Amendment, forbidding the establishment of religion, Congress called for a national "day of public thanksgiving and prayer" to acknowledge "the many signal favors of Almighty God." Myth: A war on the middle class means less comfort and opportunity for the average American. Fact: Familiar campaign rhetoric about the victimized middle class ignores the overwhelming statistical evidence that the standard of living keeps rising for every segment of the population, as well as the real-life experience of tens of millions of middle-class Americans. Each of the ten lies-widely believed among elites and taught as truth in universities and public schools-is a grotesque, propagandistic distortion of the historical record. For everyone who is tired of hearing America denigrated by people who don't know what they're talking about, The 10 Big Lies About America supplies the ammunition necessary to fire back the next time somebody t

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  Nov 17, 2009
An excellent, well written book that gives the reader logical arguments for combating common criticisms of our country. If you want to be well fortified to argue against liberal myths about America read this book.

10 Big Lies about Amerika  Nov 15, 2009
The purchase of this book was for a 16 year old Student, the book will teach a young person or a old person, that you cannot believe anything the news or many times the teachers in school teach you. We are immigrants from Germany, and I want every child to appreciate America, like I have and enjoy its freedom. Excellent book for anyone who loves America

an eye opener  Nov 13, 2009
Michael Medved is arguably one of the most well informed minds on History or Politics; definitely the most interesting. He doesn't talk down to his listener or bore them. I am no history buff
but this was so contrary to what we learned in school, college or television and what my kids are learning today! It's so important to not let your kids be brainwashed with the wrong information. This is the
first step for my kids to think for themselves, not believe everything they hear, dig deeper. I wish I had a book like this in High School or College it would have made some fun conversations around
the dinner table. You will be more interesting at social events after reading this book. I highly recommend this book for anyone. It's not offensive, just fact, unless your more comfortable being lied to by the system?
 
No more lies.  Nov 8, 2009
This book will resonate with you if you're a baby boomer growing up during the 60s and 70s when historical facts were being rewritten and political correctness was being born. The lies about America just keep building on themselves through our media outlets as the truth becomes more diluted if not obliterated. Open your eyes. Read this book and pass it on.
 
Medved Nails It  Nov 4, 2009
I saw Mr Medved on an interview show recently and went to this site to see what he had written. I got the book on tape. He really goes after the 10 "politically correct" anti American beliefs. I loved the book
