25363503Plunder and Deceit by Mark R.Levin
Reviewed by Nic Colvin, API Intern

Plunder and Deceit is an insightful glimpse into the fiscal future of America and the major financial burdens that the federal government continues to pile on to America’s young people. Levin presents his message with solid statistical evidence and writes with a no-nonsense tone that hammers the fact that decentralization of the federal government, partnered with fiscal responsibility, is necessary if America’s future generations are to inherit the greatest republic in the world. Levin’s book is not only a crash-course in conservative fiscal and social policy, but reads as a call to arms to the millennial generation to speak out against the federal government’s overreach and take action to protect personal liberties enshrined in the Constitution.”
