This book is posthumously dedicated to my Great-Great-Uncle Richard Northam who, despite his extraordinary age, was one of the most lucid, articulate, and reasoned men I have ever encountered.

Late in the fall of 2010 the 112 year old man Richard Northam (1898 - 2011), who lived through a century of changes in America, sat down with his great, great nephew, Alfred Northam Stites, and allowed a recording of his unvarnished opinions on 30 topics concerning life in America. Northam conversed on a wide variety of subjects that included the national debt, politicians, the U.S. Congress, health care, religion, education, language, war, race relations, and freedom. While his observations may be controversial, they will make you think. The solutions the old man offered to the current problems of this country are logical and reasoned in the main, although he sometimes suggested the outrageous response we all have though of at one time or another. A great deal of what he has to say in this book is what most of us think but hesitate to express.
