As we technique an important presidential election in America’s historical past, anything has been misplaced between all the debates, assault advertisements, and large- PACs—something that americans used to carry in very excessive regard: the reality.
Glenn Beck loves to say that “the fact has no agenda”—but there’s one other facet to that: those that have agendas hardly ever care in regards to the fact. And, nowadays, it kind of feels like everyone has an time table. The media leads with tales that price over those who subject. Politicians positioned lobbyists and electability over honesty. Radicals modify historical past which will swap the longer term.
In Cowards, Glenn Beck exposes the reality approximately 13 vital concerns which have been hijacked by means of deceit. no matter if out of spite, greed, or worry, those are the issues that nobody looks keen to have a good dialog approximately. for instance:
* How our two-party POLITICAL approach frequently leaves citizens without stable techniques.

Miserable or now not, the reality can now not be whatever we are hoping for; it has to be anything we are living. while braveness prevails, cowards do not—and this ebook used to be written to make sure that’s precisely what occurs.
