Revolution 2016-Rise of the Silent Majority: The Trump/Sanders Earthquake (Paperback)
THE TRUMP/SANDERS EARTHQUAKE The two politically polar-opposites are shattering the 'establishment' on both sides of the isle. Republican and Democrat candidate Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have thrown away the rule book on political campaigns, and as a result are drawing record crowds and supporters from non-traditional sources: young voters and traditional non-voters. 'Mad as Hell and not going to take it anymore', the nation's middle-class, is demonstrating their disgust with the leadership emanating from the Washington DC Beltway, as they choose their non-traditional candidates they expect will lead the nation out of the swamp of corruption and political impasse and back onto the solid ground of 'By the People, for the People' form of representative government our nation was founded upon. Whether either of these two candidates will become the nation's next president, remains to be seen; But one thing is clear, the 'Sleeping Giant' in the form of American citizens has been awakened and the 'establishment' had better take notice before something more damaging than words will be thrust into this unprecedented 'Revolution.' Many characters within these pages are real as are their quotes and many are fictional parodies. However, the message for the reader should be taken very seriously: Wake up America It's time to take back our country..........
