Mark Steyn is a modern day Jeremiah with a quiverful of devastating one-liners, nailing what the liberals have done to our country. He presents an alarming—and frighteningly convincing—prophecy of where we’re headed. The choice is stark—we either listen to Steyn and act on his recommendations or face economic and cultural armageddon.”
Mark Steyn has done it again. In his new book, After America, he clearly defines the dangerous signals which show America is embracing the same doomed path as the failed European economies, and how vital it is to implement and avoid policies right now to prevent us from the same fate.”
Only Mark Steyn can write about the decline of America and leave you laughing.”

Overall, Mark Steyn is a fine writer and I greatly admire him for his use of literary references. The book is humorous throughout, typical of Steyn's style. The left-wing environmentalists and socialists will not be too amused with this book.Read more ›
In his previous book, America Alone (see my review), Steyn argued from a demographics perspective that the Islamic world was taking over the west and that the U.S. was the only nation in the west with a birthrate that didn't portend a hopeless national death spiral. In After America, Steyn looks at the world through the lens of economics and he determines that the U.S. has joined the rest of the west in a self-destroying debt spiral, one which will result in a short shift of power to countries like China and Russia, but which will ultimately end in the balance of power going to the new world order that radical, determined and forward-planning Islam is working hard to establish.
Since Steyn published America Alone, a lot has happened. Obama was voted in by a star-struck, celebrity worshipping, fiscally suicidal U.S. majority who believes that Obama's personal charisma can underwrite an eternal and bottomless credit line with China and other (often hostile) foreign creditors. But unlike most party-line republicans, Steyn recognizes that, while Obama has done much to worsen and hasten the U.S. fiscal death spiral, he is not the real problem.Read more ›
According to Steyn, the America we once knew is declining fast and will no longer be the guarantor of Western values that it once was. Rather than standing as a beacon of liberty and freedom, America has jettisoned the founding ideals of the Republic and embarked upon a Euro-trip of big government spending, over-regulation and unsustainable debt. The end result of this inexorable growth of government has been the suffocation of individual liberty. In the name of "progress", America has become an economically and spiritually bankrupt nation; unable to pay the bills and unwilling to defend the culture.
Lest you delude yourself into hoping that "Uncle Sam" can weather the economic and demographic storm by electing a Republican to the White House in November 2012; don't bother. Setting the stage for America's perpetual big government political environment, has been a bi-partisan effort.
Mark Steyn will have you turning pages quickly, just so you can alternately chuckle and then wave your fist at the many anecdotes produced to illustrate the point that America has become a land of "small citizens" living in a "big government" country.
Read "After America" to gain a full arsenal of real world examples highlighting the excesses of big government. The next time you hear someone say "the government needs to get involved", "why don't we have a law for that" or "celebrate diversity", you'll be glad you did.

It takes a lot of guts to tell the truth and Steyn is as gutsy as they come. This book is a sequel to America Alone, but updates the sad decline of unique American values. Read morePublished on March 31 2014 by Painter
