Not only are we "taxed" without "real" representation, we are "surveilled," and "monitored" without probable cause, in direct violation of the Bill of Rights. King George could only dream of possessing the power that our current leaders have over us today, all in the name of "patriotism," and the prevention of "terrorism."

But who are the real "terrorists?"

Who wields the he

Recommends it for: anyone of the 99% of Americans described in this book.
Recommended to Kelly by: Goodreads Firstreads Gvieaway
This writer is spot on...making him one of the biggest dreamers in America at the present time.

John David writes several essays in consecutive order regarding the state of America, the facts behind the current political elections and candidates, and some ideas for returning America to her previous glory. His writing his eloquent and concise.

I agree with most of what John David writes; however, it is unlikely that what he suggests can or will ever happen. That doesn't mean that he is writing fant

This book contained numerous essays, but it really felt like most of them just repeated the same things over and over again. It's a quick read and I do agree with most of what the author says, but it really didn't contain any particularly new or interesting opinions. A for effort but I didn't really enjoy it or think it was super useful.

These essays were really not what I was expecting. I thought they would be more diplomatic, but I found it to be very harsh. I think most people would agree that there are problems with the government, but I doubt they would be able to agree on the same root problem or agree on a solution. I can understand where the author is coming from, but I did feel uncomfortable with how it was presented. This is just my opinion of it and I am sure that many other people would see it very differently than I ...more

Well if you want to hear what most of us are thinking read this book. NO HOLDS BARRED!!! Best line in the book "ask yourself why anyone would spend $100000000 for a job that pays $250k". This is non partison and right to the point. The flip of the coin analogy is perfect for me as I have been saying for a while, it doesnt matter who wins in November because NOTHING will change and these "servants of the people" will do what the 1% wants.
