The debut political book by Colorado editorialist Kevin Loesch, Small Government My A**: Things Conservatives Say & Do That Aggravate Libertarians is a sharp criticism of the conservative wing of America's Republican party, from a Libertarian point of view. No topic is too hot to touch; Loesch discusses legalizing drugs and how the "war on drugs" has overcrowded the prison system; why he regards whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and Julian Assange as heroes; why America needs separation of church and state and why conservative's efforts to undermine that division are misguided and harmful; why he feels conservatives are not serious about balancing the budget; and much more. Whether one agrees with Loesch's views or not, he makes compelling, reasoned, and snappy arguments, worthy of extended contemplation. "It is a shame that more Republicans aren't like Amash or Ron and Rand Paul. If they were truly concerned about the out of control spending, they would cut military spending as well. As I stated earlier, the United States does have a huge spending problem, especially when it comes to the military, which dwarfs the rest of the world."
