From the Publisher
I have to admit, this is a book I almost refused to publish--not because I didn't like it, but because, quite frankly, I was AFRAID. Perni pulls no punches in exposing the dark side of the United States Government. Starting with the first settlers, and working his way through the present, he shows that Americans haven't always behaved in a manner consistent with our self-righteous self-image.
Ultimately, ANGER replaced fear. How DARE they subvert this country, about which I would like to feel pride, but, faced with undeniable evidence, must instead experience shame?
This is not a book of conspiracy THEORIES. Perni backs up his thesis with actual documents recovered, despite overwhelming resistance, under the Freedom of Information Act. This is a book for patriots -- REAL patriots, who aren't content to believe catchy slogans and manipulative distortions. It is a book for those who want to make this a country about which we can honestly feel pride.
From the Author
As the description suggests, this book evolved from my efforts to come to grips with America's place in the 21st.century world. How is it that the country I was taught was always good, clean, fair, and righteous could be such a target of international rancor. I very much WANTED to believe the our government's assurances that they simply hated our freedom and our way of life. As I began my research, this was quickly revealed to be no more than simplistic propaganda. And, the more I researched, the angrier I became. The truth is undeniable: A cynical, self-serving Republicrat junta had, in every sense of the word, executed a coup, subverting every aspect of the Constitutional government of the United States! The evidence is there for anyone with an open mind to see. While this book only exposes the tip of this insidious iceberg of corruption, it should serve as an eye-opener, and will demonstrate the necessity of taking back OUR government from those who have long ago abandoned event the pretext of serving the will or wellbeing of the American people, and whose sole allegiance is to the big business interests that finance our corrupt two-party system.
