Author Releases Book Showing How Much Damage Gov’t “Help” Does to Private Individuals

Meet David T. Hardy. He’s a New York Times bestselling author, a former worker in the Interior Department’s Office of the Solicitor with a decade of experience, and a practitioner of law in Tucson, Arizona.

He’s also the author of a just-published book, “I’m from the Government and I’m Here to Kill You: The True Human Cost of Official Negligence.”

The book portrays Hardy’s passion for government accountability with stories of how our government has, on multiple occasions, endangered (and sometimes ended) the lives of the people it is supposed to serve, and how the government continues to imperil Americans today.

“Federal employees have, with legal impunity, blown up a town and killed six hundred people, released staggering amounts of radioactive contamination and lied about the resulting cancer, allowed people to die of an easily treated disease in order to study their deaths, and run guns to Mexican drug cartels in hopes of expanding agency powers,” a statement from Skyhorse Publishing company reports of the book.

“Law enforcement leaders have ordered their subordinates to commit murder. Medical administrators have ‘cooked the books’ and allowed patients to die, while raking in plump bonuses. Federal prosecutors have sent Americans to prison while concealing evidence that proved their innocence.

“‘I’m from the Government and I’m Here to Kill You’ ends with proposals for legal reforms that will hold the government and its servants accountable when they inflict harm on Americans,” the company concluded.

That’s obviously not describing the work of a man who believes in the power of the state — or other pernicious liberal ideas. And some of Hardy’s previous works show he’s firmly on the right side of the political spectrum.

In 1986, he wrote about “The Origins and Development of the Second Amendment.”  In 2005, he published “Michael Moore is a Big Fat Stupid White Man.”

Sounds like a good guy to have dinner with.

Hardy was recently interviewed by Trending Today U.S.A., and asked as a man with a decade of public service whether Americans can trust their government any longer.

“I sure didn’t, and I was part of it,” he replied.

That’s good enough for me, right there.

We need more people like Hardy shedding light on the mistakes the government makes and holding them accountable. It’s been a long time since the government held a “divine right” — its agents aren’t infallible, and they should not be immune, either.

The book can purchased here. If Hardy’s previous works are any guide, I suspect it’d be well worth your time.
