This book is a daring attack on some of the powers that be in the U.S. today and those that are left in the pages of world history. I am sure that a great deal of research and study went into the writing of this book. Mr. Watterson gives specific behind the scene details about important historical events as they relate to people in high government positions and secret societies. Some of the chapter titles are: "Who Taught America's Elites How To Subvert Their Government" and "How Does A Secret Society Use War To Advance It's Agenda". The main theme running through it all was that the average American citizen is being deceived by the powerful few into seeing only what they want you to see. Although I think at some point it became unclear to me who are the ones trying to destroy our country and who are the ones trying to hold it together. I still think that there are a great number of honest people in government trying their best to fight corruption and serve the best interests of the people and sometimes unfortunately they get overlooked. This is where Congressman Ron Paul comes into the story however it isn't till the last chapter. This book reminds me of how much I love my country and makes me thankful for those who are vigilant about defending it. I am sure there are some good people and some bad in our government but after all the U.S.A. is all of us and we need to stick together.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805978909, Hardcover)

Curious about different points of view on American history and politics? Wondering about the state of affairs in the United States and the current situation in foreign and domestic arenas? Thinking that somehow the media and the government's version of recent events doesn't quite add up? Then Mark Watterson has some insights and ideas to add to the discussion.

Starting with historical and literary analysis, especially concerning Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville, and The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli, Watterson marches through American history while looking through the lens of George Orwell's 1984. He combines current information with his own philosophy, urging the reader to action that culminates with an impassioned plea for a candidate for president, Ron Paul. Displaying a deep concern for his country, Watterson brings a fresh perspective to a lively political debate.
