Liberally Conservative

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Book Reviews NOT...Hate Mongering YES!

I was reading an article by Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard and decided to examine his new book, 'Rebel-in-Chief: How George W. Bush Is Redefining the Conservative Movement and Transforming America', at
The first thing I noticed was the extremely low review rate by people who supposedly read the book (2.5 stars). Unfortunately the left-wing hate mongers monopolized the review section with vitriol, and obvious lack of attention to the purpose of real book reviews. These people never read the book, they wouldn't take the time but they used the service to place one sentence slams on George W. Bush, some actually made lists of things they hate about the President.
I'm a frequent reviewer at Amazon, writing honest opinions and thought about each book I have used in research or read for enjoyment. I too have become a victim for any review I have written about a book with a favorable premise about conservatives or dialogue not favorable about liberals. I've gotten slammed for a favorable review on a book by Zell Miller because he depicted Democrats as losing their way. Historically they have.
I took the time to report these non-reviews, the unfortunate thing is Amazon will continue to allow "false reviews" under the guise of free speech. It's a review section not a chat room. This is the best we can expect from the socialist left and the Al Gore-Howard Dean screaming clones.
