I would like to start off by saying that there is some confusion with some of the negative reviewers on this book. Now, whether it was that Deneen Borelli's message was lost in translation or you just didn't read the book, I think it needs to be clarified that - while she may be conservative - she is a black woman, which means that she is just as much aware of what her ancestors went through for her to receive the freedom she and all other minorities possess today.

In the book, she speaks of how she has been cast out by other minorities because the idea has been drilled into their heads that - if you are of minority descent - you are SUPPOSED to vote Democrat. I am a minority, and I too am of the Conservative mindset, and I shame those who think Mrs. Borelli, myself and anyone else in our position are traitors to our own race for believing in the preservation of our freedoms.

Many of you against this book are most likely operating from a liberal mindset, and that is fine, to each his own. That being said, do not assume that she is strictly pointing the finger at the Democrats and no one else. She makes it clear that it is not a matter of party politics: it is politics PERIOD that is ruining this country. What she contends - and I side with her on this - is that the minority (Blacks in particular) are receiving a raw deal as a result of the established entitlements.

I grew up in the Northeast, and naturally jumped on the Liberal bandwagon, but I was not always sure if that was the right position to take. I mean, how could I decide if I didn't know anything about opposing views. Everywhere you go, you find different interpretations of history. It makes one wonder if there is ever such a thing as an unbiased truth. Well, I learned if you read enough from all sides, eventually you pick up on what is consistent from all stories: resulting in the truth.

Well, I think I walked a similar path - albeit less arduous and emotionally challenging - to Mrs. Borelli. I too believe that everyone should be granted the opportunity to succeed. What many confuse the word "opportunity" with is a guarantee. You deserve a chance just like anyone else to get what you want, but it DOES NOT mean you will get it. I learned that many Liberals feel as though they are "entitled" to things despite not working for them. I do not blame them for possessing this mindset as it is the people appointed over them that have influenced and brainwashed them into believing that they are owed some kind of debt as compensation for something that was suffered by people from 2, 3, and 4 generations ago.

Mrs. Borelli is a dedicated activist with the most genuine of intentions: to help the same people who chastize her to remove themselves from the "government plantation" and become truly free. She does not want the minority community to settle with living in a shadow of entitlements and collecting "Obamabucks", forever keeping them in a life of servitude and to depend on Nanny State politics to save them.

Again, to those of you who openly lash out at Mrs. Borelli, remember she is working for your freedom. She is fighting for your success, as well as the millions of minorities in the future. I can tell you right now, she is so much more of a guiding light than the Sharpton, Jackson, and others COMBINED!

timely book written by a very brave woman March 6 2012
By dc2 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I am the first reviewer of this book. It's very sad how liberals are attacking this woman. What a double standard... As soon as an African American steps out of line, they get attacked by the left. She's right - what's the difference between making people slaves to the govt. and slaves to the plantation owner? "I can't get a job or I'll lose my welfare and food stamps" is a sad tag line for the entitlement society. It doesn't work, it never has worked- this mind set leads to disaster. We need to follow Ronald Reagan's example - create a structure where people have the choice to flourish on their own - not rely on a Govt. program to take care of them...

Deneen Borelli Hit A Nerve March 7 2012

I pre-ordered this book and received it on my Kindle yesterday. What a great read. I am 75 pages in and this book will really strike a nerve with those that support the entitlement society. Deneen Borelli does a wonderful job of just laying out her case. She has a credible perspective that cannot be denied. So far I love this book! Thank you Deneen!

Superb! March 23 2012

This is an outstanding book. I live and work in Memphis as a teacher. Everyday I witness the plantation mentality that Borelli describes in this book. On an almost daily basis, I've witnessed ninth grade girls who have had their second child, students verbalizing defeatist and victimized attitudes and the expectation that someone will take care of all of their needs. Regardless of the positive, "you are your own destiny" message I try to instill in my students, they are inundated with a culture of welfare that oppresses them. Thank you, Deneen Borelli, for being the courageous mouthpiece that is needed to bring about positive change.
