Editorial Reviews

Review

''The President should've paid attention to the old advertising slogan: 'Don't Mess with Texas'... a gutsy political thriller with non-stop action, combining Tom-Clancyesque technical and political detail alongside dialogue and fast-moving action reminiscent of Western novels. The fast-paced action follows a broad cast of characters in both the White House and in Austin as Roberts weaves a tale that is very fanciful without being completely unbelievable.'' --Dave Mundy, General Manager & Editor, The Gonzales Cannon Newspaper

''...This book illustrates how important it is to elect liberty-loving leaders who are more willing to rebel than compromise. A State of Treason is ripped from today's headlines--the federal government is indeed lawless, anti-Constitutional, and oppressive. Tyranny is devouring our freedom and Texans must soon decide how long these evils are sufferable. Because when Texans finally say 'Enough is enough!' we will enter a long-delayed State of Treason and there will be no option other than to win--or die.'' --Heidi Hansing Theiss, Radio Host, Tea Party Activist, City Council Member

About the Author

Growing up in San Antonio, Texas David Thomas Roberts made regular trips to The Alamo with visiting family, friends, and schoolmates. The story of The Alamo, the spirit of all its Texian Heroes, and the fight for Texas independence left an indelible impression on him that has endured a lifetime. As a ''naturalized'' Texan, Roberts has become a staunch defender and admirer of all things Texas, including the Republic's rich history of fierce independence, self-reliance, liberty, unique history, culture and people. Robert is a serial entrepreneur and CEO of a technology firm he founded and owns several businesses. He is active in politics and is an accomplished public speaker. Roberts lives in Montgomery, Texas--the birthplace of the Lone Star flag with his wife of 30+years. Together, they have four grown children and one grandchild, all whom have been blessed to have been born ''Native Texans''.

Again, this book could be pulled from today's headlines. It picks up where the previous book (Patriot's of Freedom) left off. Exciting from the first pages. You will not be able to put this book down. I found the direction of the book to be very believable. I also loved the ending. If you like action and relevant subject matter, you will love this book. Hope the author has a third book in the works!

To anybody that's not a Texan this may just be a good book, for me a Texan first, it was awesome. Although a work of fiction today 10-20-14, those with eyes to see would acknowledge it could easily be fact tomorrow! God bless Texas. -Edgar, proud Texan, Montgomery co. Texas

“A State of Treason” by Dave Roberts is a fast-moving, action-packed story of a spiraling-out-of-control clash between Texas and the federal government and ends in a crisis threatening to unravel the nation.

After President Obama won re-election there was talk in some states of secession. “A State of Treason” provides a clear portrait of how that might come about if it were to happen. The novel also gives a clear look at Texas itself and how Texans think – a glimpse that is much different than how citizens of the remaining 49 view their states.

This novel, like its predecessor (“Patriots of Treason”), also gives an inside look at the Tea Party at the grass roots and what motivates patriots to join the ranks of this movement and what its members think about the federal government, the IRS, DHS and the mainstream political parties.
It is fascinating what happens when a state moves towards independence and succession and the issues that spring forth as the federal government responds. Is it right for the federal government to withhold Social Security, food stamps and federal pensions payments from Texans, is it right for Texans to seize federal military bases, is it an act of war for a Texas Air National Guard aircraft to shoot down a federal plane, and is it a unconstitutional act of treason to secede from the union.

Roberts does an excellent job presenting these issues and airing them out fully. And the reason the author can examine such issues with precision is that he is active in politics and the movement for Texas Independence and has been a speaker at Tea Party events.

Not only is “A State of Treason” a can’t-put-down book but it is a book that will keep your mind churning days after you finish it, wondering how much of the plot is real or could be real and whether you really want to know the difference.

The winds of secession are blowing again in the State of Texas.In this all too real fictional novel ,David Thomas Roberts creates an account of the unfolding of events as Texas proceedes to put into action processes that will lead to its independence from the Union.Although supposedly " a fictional narrative,the stotyline and the characters are for entertainment purposes only.It is not intended to imply any real person actually made statements,nor acted in any manner consistent with the storyline of this novel." As you read this novel,you will feel that it is uncanny in both the believability of the main characters and their actions;and some of what is taking place today;that it will send shivers up your spine.If this novel was written 10 or so years ago,it would easily be dismissed as pure hokum,;but not so today.
Texas has had more than it can take from actions by Washington and now are going to put it to the people in a vote to see if they want to secede.The Federal Government,decides to use any and every means possible,whether legal or not to prevent Texas from breaking away from the Union.
There are no holds barred ,and it doesn't take long for lives to be lost.
An interesting and appropriate concept used by the author is to start of each of the 51 chapters with a quotation from historical and recent American and world leaders who made profound statements concerning Rights,Patriotism,Tyranny,Liberty,Dissent,Consent,Protest,Constitution and the Right to Bear Arms,Revolution,Rebellion,etc.;all which are part of living in and believing in Life,Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Such things happened before in America's history and the abuse of power can result in such happenings again.

This book is one of the most captivating stories I have ever read. It is like the author is vividly describing a very possible tomorrow that I believe it is happening as I read it. Do not miss reading this book if you care about what is happening in this country! You won't regret it.

The sequel to Patriots of Treason is even better than the first. Ripped from todays headlines, you have to ask if David Thomas Roberts is just a good story teller or is he a prophet???? Most of the action takes place in TEXAS but it doesn't matter if you are a Texan or not, If you love great storys in the mold of Tom Clancy you will love this book. Read Patriots of Treason first then Find out why the spirit of Santa Ana is still alive and well. Find out why Pops Younger is what we need today! You will cry, you will laugh, you will stand up and cheer out loud. You will not be able put it down.
