The Business End of Government, by Dan Smoot

About Dan Smoot's The Business End of Government

The business end of government is a gun. Dan Smoot's book is "An in-depth look at how Federal regulators threaten to destroy the American businessman."

From the back cover of The Business End of Government:

The American Businessman has been the driving force in the economic success of our free-enterprise system. Today, his survival is being threatened -- not by the hazards of the marketplace or the pressures of competition but by the very government he is taxed to support and which was instituted to secure his liberty.

From the Introduction:

Mao Tse-Tung, the father of the Communist dictatorship in China, is widely quoted as having said: "Power comes out the barrel of a gun." According to a recent report of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, Mao has used that power to murder nearly 64 million of his own people -- many for no other reason than that owning a small piece of land has made them capitalists.

Identifying the same principle, George Washington, the father of our country, observed: "Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force." But Washington, loving liberty, devoted himself to binding down that force with the once powerful chains of the Constitution, defending, the right of free men to live, produce, and prosper in a free economy.
