I will admit that the books in this series have a definite right wing slant to them, and they do get into some very dark areas of a persons soul, I find them somewhat interesting and anyone that takes them seriously (LRS1969 comes to mind) they arent looking for something to entertain them even if its only mildly. They are only looking for something to preach about. Read the book. I admit they arent for everyone, and theres parts Im not thrilled about, but its still ONLY a book.

Kildar is the 2nd book in the Paladin Series (or often as known as the Kildare Series).

It too is incredibly bad.

Not only does he have viewpoints - throughout this book and all of the first 5 of this series - that are extremely Far Right (*) but that are just plain wrong when viewed from the "step back and look at the whole picture REALITIES of things!

I have come to realize that the only books of his that I have actually enjoyed have been those co-authored by other (true) authors - like David Drake, David Weber, etc. The few authored solely by Ringo have been atrocious (see this Paladin / Kildar series in its entirety for my point).

Also I find it so interesting that Ringo is Far Right Wing Conservative ONLY in those areas that he personally favors while being EXTREMELY non Conservative - at least I hope that real Conservatives don't believe in his perversions as shown in his personally written books - in his personal beliefs that are truly perverse as shown in those books.

Also, so reader KNOWS that these are his beliefs, check him out under Wiki and look up his Works and find the Paladin Series and see what his publisher says about why Ringo wrote that series.

The series itself is politically biased to the point of psychotic paranoia (and incorrect factually in almost every instance). It is highly racist.

It is filled with not just sex (I am an adult and have no problem with consensual adult sex), but constant examples of perverted sex (just as one example from book 3 of series, where "Kildar" gets an erection when a nude 12-yr old girl - a child - is forced to sit on his lap while he is negotiating buying her from a couple sex slave traders and he becomes aroused at thinking of the rape and abuse that she was put through -- as that is the way HIS feelings are)!!

Additionally he is not only completely anti Muslim (occasionally refers to "Islamic terrorists" but too often slips and just refers to "Islamics" when talking about the bad guys) and constantly refers to them as "black-asses" - apparently in the belief that all Islamics are very dark skinned and Mideasten (like Jesus???) ... but also speaks despairingly of "fundamentalist Christians" and rich people (as in "the politicians and those rich bastards" - who caused such and such problem)!

Apparently in his political adolescent naiveness does NOT realize that fundamentalists and the wealthy ARE the Core Base of both the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party! In the first five books of this series (written well prior to 2008 and generally just a few months apart in 2005 / 2006) in those first five books of series, he simply loves everything American military and President Bush (President Cliff in his series) and hates everything liberal (or that he simply labels as being liberal and paints ALL in such a category as being that way with a very prejudiced brush!) - especially Senator Clinton (Senator Walker [??] in his books, other than his January 2013 book 6 of the series which he outlined for a co-author... while then claiming top billing!), the Senator Clinton that he repeatedly references as being THE Dem presidential candidate in the next election (first 5 books written well before 2008, so Obama getting nomination must have truly shocked him - and Obama winning must have totally infuriated him)!!!
