Paul A. Ibbetson is a published author and lecturer on the Patriot Act. He is a former Chief of Police of Cherryvale, Kansas, and member of the Montgomery County Drug Task Force. Paul received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Criminal Justice at Wichita State University, and is currently completing his PhD. in Sociology at Kansas State University. Paul A. Ibbetson is the author of the books Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating A Society and Feeding Lions: Sharing the Conservative Philosophy.

According to the book description of Feeding Lions: Sharing the Conservative Philosophy it “is a book that comes clean on just why conservatives and liberals can't get in the same room without a fight breaking out. Using a healthy dose of heartland humor, the author takes readers on a journey of discovery that will anger liberals and awaken the dormant conservative who sleeps in the majority of the nation. This book avoids reams and reams of boring statistics and gets down to business right away by laying out the fundamentals of conservatism and why they fall in diametric opposition to liberalism. The goal for this book is quality, not quantity, and each page is full of serious intellectual analysis on the battle being waged for the hearts and minds in this country, and why conservative views MUST win the day.”


One reader of Feeding Lions: Sharing the Conservative Philosophy in a Politically Hostile World said, “Another great read from a very talented writer. Without trying to hide who he is from anyone who picks up this book, Paul managed to write a book that will captivate readers of any political slant. He states from the very beginning that this book is based on his view and the lessons he's learned through life, which he shares throughout.  A lot more approachable then his last, more technical release (Living Under the Patriot Act: Educating a Society), Feeding Lions gives a look into the views of a man raised from conservative roots in the very heart of America. From his first run-in with the hippie culture to his discussion of liberal bias in today's higher education institutions and from his views of Reagan's presidency to Bush's stand against terrorism, Paul manages to express how he reached the views he did and why he will stick by them until the very end.  For those who do not understand the basics of the conservative movement to those who may just want another view of those beliefs, I highly recommend that you pick up Feeding Lions.”


According to the book description of Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating A Society, “The book is a comprehensive look at the Patriot Act, the most power tool in the war on terror today. The book is the product of three years of research and gives important information for people on both sides of this political issue. The books covers the creation of the original and the highly contentious renewal.”

Paul A. Ibbetson said of Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating A Society, “Shortly after 9-11 in 2001, a bill was introduced in Congress and passed despite the fact that most members had not even had an opportunity to read it. It is popularly known as the Patriot Act. In his new book, Living Under The Patriot Act: Educating a Society ($17.99, Author House, available from Amazon.com), Paul A. Ibbetson, a former police chief currently studying for his PhD in sociology, shares his three years of research on what he calls "one of the most powerful laws of modern day." Those of both liberal and conservative political orientation have expressed serious concerns because, while it expands the government's ability to find and jail terrorists, it also portends the possibility of its misuse by a government less attentive to the dictates of the Constitution. The FBI admitted to such abuses just last month. The author's purpose, as the title notes, is to educate the reader to the various aspects of the bill, from its passage to its current status. The bill is due for reauthorization and this timely book permits for a thorough review of the way it works. This is not light reading because it rather intensively looks at the bill section by section. Nor is the book a polemic taking sides. Those of a legal bent of mind will find it a masterful piece of work.”
