Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I have watched both the ineffectiveness and frustration of progressives build and build over the past 15 or so years. The more blatant the transgressions of our politicians, the more fragmented and directionless the agenda and response of the liberal-progressive class has become. The voice of the left has been both silenced and marginalized. Now, for example, when political demonstrations are held, they either get no media coverage and are promptly squashed by our militarized police forces. The 60s are over.

There are many people who want to turn things around. Thus there is a tremendous reserve of energy to be tapped. Yet I read and read and never see a detailed strategy to FOCUS all this potential activism. A lot of whining. No plan.

Moreover, I am astonished at what enormous agreement there is across political parties and ideologies on many key issues ... fair taxation of the rich, ending the pointless wars, leaving social security and medicare as full functioning programs, raising the minimum wage, GMO labeling, ending corporate welfare, on and on.

My approach is to get people focused on what they want vs. what they get from Congress, then to demand enforceable contracts from all prospective candidates, but especially from incumbents. Fight for the Democracy We Deserve offers a hard-ball strategy of coercion which openly but legally blackmails candidates into doing the right thing or replaces them with ones who will. It establishes an ironclad, enforceable platform for demanding our elected representatives do our bidding as their electors,instead of taking their orders from the deep-pocketed lobbyists and corporate puppet masters who are eviscerating our democracy.

Will it work? I believe it will. I didn't spend four years developing this strategy as mental gymnastics training.

About the Author

John Rachel has a B.A. in Philosophy, has traveled extensively, been a songwriter and music producer, political activist and is a bipolar humanist. Since 2008, when he first embarked on his career as a novelist, he has had eight fiction and three non-fiction books published. These range from three satires and a coming-of-age trilogy, to a political drama and recently a crime thriller. The three non-fiction works were also political, his attempt to address the crisis of democracy and pandemic corruption in the governing institutions of America. His numerous political essays have appeared at OpEdNews, Russia Insider, Greanville Post, and other alternative media outlets.

Never knowing when enough is enough, the hyperthyroid Rachel continues to be very busy. He has three more novels in the pipeline for publication late 2017 through 2018: Sex, Lies and Coffee Beans, a spoof on the self-help crazes of the 80s and 90s; Love Connection, a drug-trafficking thriller set in Japan; and finally The Last Giraffe, an anthropological drama involving both the worship and devouring of giraffes, which unfolds in 19th Century sub-Saharan Africa.

John Rachel's last permanent residence in America was Portland, Oregon where he had a state-of-the-art ProTools recording studio, music production house, a radio promotion and music publishing company. He still writes music and, much to the annoyance of his neighbors in the traditional rural Japanese town where he now lives, attempts to sing his original songs.

John Rachel has a B.A. in Philosophy, is a novelist and established political blogger. He has written eight novels, three political non-fiction books, and a fantasy/travel/cookbook about the dietary preferences of mermaids. His political articles have appeared at OpEdNews, Russia Insider, Greanville Post, Dissident Voice, Nation of Change, and other alternative media outlets.

Since leaving the U.S. in 2006, he has lived in and explored 34 countries. He is now somewhat rooted in a traditional, rural Japanese community about an hour from Osaka, where he lives with his wife of four years. Daily he rides his bicycle through the soybean fields and rice paddies which sprawl across the surrounding landscape. As of the date of the release of this book, he has a small but promising organic vegetable garden which begs his attention.
