Restoring America One County at a Time was a fun read. I was expecting some tactical manual for political action at the county level, but McDurmon’s book was much more than that. He has much to say on taxation, education, currency, markets, national defense, and more. McDurmon examines the biblical basis of government and then describes how America’s governmental role got started, got off track, and ended up as the lumbering behemoth that it is today. The historical material is refreshing, not the conventional material covered in high-school text books designed for today’s government schools.
Let the reader understand: Restoring America does not call for a few tweaks on the current system. Though McDurmon promotes restoring America to the values of its past, I’m not sure that the America that he describes ever even existed after its beginning. His approach calls for maximum personal liberty and minimum government.
I recommend the book, it is a refreshing and radical departure in governing philosophy from the two nearly identical big government political parties that exist today. Ron Paul would be proud.
