FROM THE BACK COVER: Thomas Paine said, "It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government." These days, while everyone is talking about the economy, health care, energy, climate change, and a host of other issues, most Americans are simply assuming that it is government's job to handle these "crises." Few think to even question the premise of the government's role in "fixing" problems it created in the first place! Government intervention in arenas of life that once belonged to the individual has turned too many Americans into a compliant mass of dependent government subjects! We have given our freedom away to a system that has grown too big for the britches our Founders gave it. For the past hundred years we have surrendered our liberties, bit by bit, law by law, tax by tax, to the Almighty State, and we blindly serve it out of complacency, fear, and dependence. In Spread This Wealth (and Pass This Ammunition), author C. Jesse Duke challenges Americans to take back their true wealth, their liberty, and their nation. In simple, common-sense terms, Mr. Duke briefly explains the philosophical reasons for our national perils and then offers simple, but bold, common-sense solutions. His Five-Step Plan will solve the immediate crises caused by socialist policies, save our children and grandchildren from debt slavery, and establish America as a wealth and freedom generating machine for centuries to come! In the spirit of the modern day Tea Parties, Spread This Wealth (and Pass This Ammunition) is both a call to action for concerned citizens and a "shot across the bow" of the current Congress. It shows how we can restore the traditional values of self-reliance, personal responsibility, and strong individualism that made America great. Will you be part of the problem, or part of the solution?
