About the Author: The writer is a retired FBI Agent. His second office of assignment was San Francisco, California. Autumn of 1969 was a tumultuous time in the Bay Area. The Free Speech Movement had started in nearby Berkeley in 1964, and students (mostly sympathetic to the Black Panthers and the Third World Liberation Front) were clamoring for San Francisco State to offer classes in areas of interest to them; Black studies and ‘Ethnic’ studies. Colleges everywhere were under intense pressure to conform, and the war in Vietnam added fuel to the fires of discontent. Brown attended most of the ‘peaceful’ demonstrations in the Bay area over the following three years and marveled at the level of hatred and rebellion in these young people. In retrospect, the demonstrations of that day were mild compared to the lawlessness of the highly organized demonstrators and rioters of today. A major effort is underway in America to change our government from a Democratic Republic to a form of socialism, which the organizers fervently hope will eventuate in communism. This book affords a guideline—a GPS, if you will—to help Americans find their way back to the America of which Alexis de Tocqueville wrote, when he said America was “…great because she is good.”—the nation our Founding Fathers established.
About the book: America is in trouble. We are divided racially, ethnically, politically and by gender as we have never been before. The Congress is so partisan as to preclude any positive accomplishments.
A large minority has concluded that the only solution is to switch from our Democratic Republic to Socialism. They promise it will not be the sort of Socialism that has bankrupted once-wealthy Venezuela, but do not concede that Venezuelans did not vote for the kind of Socialism Hugo Chavez delivered.
We have the same Constitution our Founders gave us, based upon the Judeo-Christian ethos. What has changed?
Our political parties have devolved into two hostile camps with vastly different interpretations of the Constitution. Some Americans fear and detest Socialism, while Progressives present it as our Utopia.
Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville visited America in 1834. Of what he had seen he wrote, "America is great because America is good". He went on to say, "When America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.
This book is a roadmap to assist us in regaining something important--the America that our Founding Fathers gave us.
