Sirota's Hostile Takeover Book Review

by Bill Bolton

Overview

The David Sirota's book "Hostile Takeover, How Big Money & Corruption Conquered Our Government -- and How We Take It Back", details many issues. However, it skipped religion!

Some excerpts

In a footnote on page 4, he writes:

" ... Federal election law technically bars corporations from using the company treasury to make political donations to candidates ..."

Well, Sirota continues in detail as to how corporations get around it.

Avoiding Religion

His avoiding of religion gives an indication of the fear we have of religion or how brainwashed we are. How can Sirota, endorsed by many, avoid such an issue. Is he brainwashed by religion to look the other way, brainwashed to say it is divine corruption so it is OK, or scared to mention it because of consequences?

No Loopholes

Sirota's book is really a collection of loopholes, and can be simplified just by saying, stop all loopholes. Oops, I included the church.

How much does it cost to believe in God? zero dollars. How much does it cost to brainwash everyone to believe in God? Billions of dollars.

He Signed my Book

I bought his book at a book signing, and we talked briefly before he signed it. I explained I ran for Governor of Georgia and part of my platform was to stop all loopholes. He signed it by writing:

"To Bill -- Keep fighting the hostile takeover! David Sirota"

Multi-attack is Needed

What he wrote in the signing is true for all of us. Meaning, we all have to "keep fighting the hostile takeover" in spite of doing it in our own way.

GOD-Nation v. JJ-Nation

Sirota quotes Jefferson by writing just before the Table of Contents:

"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of monied corporations which dare already to challenge our Government to a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country."
Thomas Jefferson, 1816.

Again I say GOD-Nation v. the JJ-Nation.
