Fighting For The Democracy We Deserve Kindle Edition
There is a financial reward for saving America from authoritarian rule by the corporate elite. If voters unite behind the strategy contained in this short book, each and every U.S. citizen will end up $14,084 richer.
From the Author
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
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.

Author and activist John Rachel has a plan that I think can and will work if we take it seriously and use it. The plan is to take back the political process by forcing candidates to sign legally binding contracts to support what we want. If they violate the contract, they are legally bound to leave office; failing to do that will cost them a lot of money.
How is all this done? John Rachel’s two books, Candidate Contracts: Taking Back our Democracy, and Fighting for the Democracy We Deserve lay out the plan in detail. The second book is as “a short course manual for constructive voting in the 2016 election.” “The plan,” he says, “is painfully simple. We just need to do it. So he’s get started.”
