Summary "Showdown demonstrates how this nation would be stronger, richer and safer with less government intervention, and how individuals would not only cope but thrive without the so-called social safety net." "Among the critical issues Elder discusses are: Why self-defense has to be job #1; how the country entered a spiral of poorly educated kids and fatherless families... and how it can get out; where a responsible government would put its citizens' tax dollars; why racial and sex discrimination are nonissues in the twenty-first century; what a Republican-led government means for progress; how the media and special-interest groups encourage a "victicrat" mentality; and what we ought to do about gun control. Showdown is a call to arms for a truly free, safe, and prosperous society."--BOOK JACKET
