Gratuitously violent revenge porn cartoon

As mentioned by others, Jack Carr's service to our country is something that should be appreciated and admired. However, this appreciation does not extend to his writing abilities. If you like a total lack of nuance, cartoonish one dimensional characters, a "hero" who savagely tortures his foes and terrorizes innocent women and children, this is the book for you. Also, if you're a right wing zealot who thinks all of the problems of the world are due to liberals, yeah, you're gonna love this one. But you also have to be gullible enough to swallow one of the most far-fetched tales of corruption that I've ever read.
To use the divisive vernacular of our time, I'm no snowflake. I grew up on a farm and starting shooting and hunting at an early age. I am a life-long Republican, although the party's support of an obviously amoral leader have me reassessing my political affiliation. But this kind of simplistic drivel, regardless of which party it comes from, is part of what's driving us further apart. We only read and listen to the B.S. coming from our tribe which then further motivates our tribal instincts and our visceral hate for the other tribes.
The author seems to think that avarice and corruption is limited to one party. Every character appears to be either a hero or a villian. If you are a conservative, law-and-order proponent who is threatened or challenged by shades of gray, don't worry. This book is completely devoid of complex thought and will not challenge you at all. It will fit perfectly into your confimation bias.
