#1 New York Times bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense.

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 commonsense solutions to the nation’s problems.

One such American, Thomas Paine, was an ordinary man who changed the course of history by penning Common Sense, the concise 1776 masterpiece in which, through 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 once again 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.

And of course, as with any book advancing a political point of view, it should be read with a critical eye and — yes — common sense.

Anyways, this group is closely tied with the local 9/12 group and as a result, I’ve heard people rave about how great Glenn Beck is and how his book “Glenn Beck’s Common Sense” is “must read.” I decided to check it out from my local library and apparently, there was quite a queue to check out the...
