This book could be dubbed ďNot quite ready for prime time.Ē Itís difficult for the average individual to get a book published. Literary agents donít like to work with the unknown and mainstream publishers want writers to use an agent. Then there is the conservative and liberal factor. Liberals seem to strive in the book business. Liberal I am not. But Iím not exactly a conservative either. Some of the ideas presented could be construed as very liberal.
The best way to use this book is to read the chapters that you are most interested inófor example Social Security reform or health care reform. If you have your own ideas and you should, Iíll be happy to add them to this blog, but keep in mind itís about being rational. Tell where the money is going to come from and donít add to the national debt or raise my taxes. Congress has approved bills, presidents have signed bills into law without figuring out where to get the money. The politicians running for office in 2008 must thinks its 1960 and taxes are low, the budget deficit is nonexistence, and the national debt is near zero. They keep offering up programs and costly fixes for problems while promising tax cuts. It canít be done without cutting programs, attitudes need to be changed.
I have consolidated some of the chapters. Chapters 1 thru 5 are in the first section, named Poverty is a Choice. Most chapters follow the outline of the book and this web site. If the chapter isnít listed, itís been consolidated.
This writer is convinced that the wealthy and poor in America will keep riding the middle class until we all live in poverty. The only way to get true reform is force it on the government. That means a constitutional convention and forced reform that doesnít include the Democrats or Republicans. Or we can just keep going as life spirals downward while we wonder what ever happened to our great country.

Note: Blogging a book was a bigger chore then I expected. The formatting went awry. The tabs didnít stay in place. The spacing moved about and the program I used was sensitive to the touch. Change one item and others changes were made. With 200 plus pages it became a chore with a lot of deleting and starting over. Sorry about any mistakes, like the content, I take full responsibility.
