The Common Man - God, Home, Country
Growing up in the 1950s, The American Dream was very much alive. Anything was possible. Trusting was easy, so was taking risk. Oh, how things have changed. What happened? More than a personal memoir recounting life’s struggles and triumphs, THE COMMON MAN is a fascinating insight into today's world. Someone has said, “This is the stuff martyrs are made of.” Are you ready for the truth? More
The American Dream is fading fast. Everyone senses it, but it seems no one knows what to do about it – until now. THE COMMON MAN is an entertaining and remarkable book. But this is not dry academic research. This is one of those books you can't put down, absorbing and inspiring, woven together by the thread of life. It is the, “If experience is the best teacher, I should be President by now,” type of book.
After giving some childhood background, God & Home, the first section, begins with recounting the futility of my service in the Vietnam War, coming home disillusioned, using drugs and groping for the meaning of life. Graduating from college in Political Science and Philosophy, I set out to find truth at any cost.
Then, after the successive deaths of a good friend, father, brother and newborn son I accepted Christ - that was the easy part. Even as I committed myself to my family and a financial career the agony of job losses and business setbacks led me to seek a deeper relationship with God. I read the Bible through in its entirety year after year, more than 30 times now, and compared it to the Koran finding the unexpected.
In God & Country, the second section, I joined the Tea Party. As I lay very still in bed after a vivid dream night, God asked, “Are you ready to go to Washington?” Learning the core issues of our nation's decline, I was shocked to learn how far our Constitutional Republic has strayed from the precepts of the Founding Fathers. Not only is our individual liberty at risk, but the future of the world is in peril.
Leaning on my financial background and Biblical knowledge, I found two multi-faceted “smoking guns” in the hands of Democrats and Republicans that, unintentionally or otherwise, are killing The American Dream.
Again, this is not dry academic research, but a book filled with engaging, fact-filled, interesting stories that has the twists and turns of a great novel - except this is all true. Think of it like good dinner conversation.
There's no time to waste. Are you ready to turn on the light? Invest in your future. Invest in THE COMMON MAN today.
