America stands, not at a crossroads, but at the edge of an abyss. We have a crushing national debt that can never be repaid, live under constant government surveillance, and are regulated in every aspect of our lives - right down to the amount of water that can flow out of your showerhead – by unelected bureaucrat thugs in Washington.
Americans are bewildered about how we arrived here and are confused and disgusted by the empty babble from our political masters and news industry “reporters.”
For the first time, Todd Douglas has provided Americans with a comprehensive history of how the constitutional government of the United States was undermined and ultimately destroyed. This destruction was not always deliberate, and was perpetrated by members of both the Republican and Democrat political parties that have ruled us for a century and a half.
Readers will understand what the analysts fail to see; that the counterrevolution is complete – “Conservatives” have nothing left to conserve, and liberals will suffer alike under the same growing tyranny from our political masters.

All the usual suspects are mentioned: Abraham Lincoln, FDR and the present POTUS. There are surprises: John Adams, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson; some more surprising than others - to me this illustrates how purposefully "uneducated" even people of my generation were. And he leaves no one out - Republican or Democrat...
