Description

The U.S. lauds itself as a land of opportunity for both citizens and immigrants, but the country now faces a rash of issues and policies that have sharply divided us. If we do not address them, we face chaos...both domestically and globally.

With the election of Donald J. Trump to President in 2016, Middle America and conservatives rejoiced. Meanwhile many liberals melted down, not comprehending that a divided America did not start with President Trump. In actuality, the division was instigated by a left turn in politics enshrined in the courts, including unions which propped up the liberal agenda; a corrupt and incompetent Washington D.C.; an overall disgust with lawmakers; a failed education system; class warfare championed by liberal whites; a news media that believed its job was to tell us what to think; failed economic policies; rampant unemployment; the use of race as a weapon; a contempt displayed by liberal elites; and an out of control immigration system, where the "rights" of illegal immigrants were placed above Americans' rights and foreign policies. But despite the mounting evidence, naysayers still fail to admit that the current state of division is, in part, because of the failed policies of the left.

In the 1960s, America embraced a sharp turn to the political left. Those policies included an overly-broad view of illegal immigration, unlimited entitlement, federal control of the education system, welfare as a handout and not a hand-up, an attempt to assure government control of healthcare, a collegiate system that has systematically silenced conservative voices, a federal government that gets in the way of providing solutions rather than solves issues, and a judiciary that makes law rather than interpret law. This book debunks the opinions behind these myths, allowing readers to make their own decisions about both the cause of these problems and the potential solutions.
