Most U.S. citizens are (or at least try to be) good, kind, caring individuals - just like the people in all other countries. We care about many of the same things: obtaining a job of our choosing that affords the necessities of life, to freely practice our spiritual and religious beliefs, to love and be loved, to live in a safe environment, to raise a family, to obtain education, to be healthy, and to be free to do as we wish as long as it doesn't harm anyone else or the environment. Why then, cannot we the people of the world get along? It is because our leaders have been manipulating events for decades: YES, even our beloved United States. "Defining America" looks at a handful of details that point to the fact that many policies of the U.S. military, government, business, and health industries are more interested in making a buck than in helping anyone. This book is a personal quest to enlighten the American man-on-the-street as to what is really going on, in a humorous and easier to digest sort of way. The purpose is to drop-kick the masses off their easy-chairs and out of the pubs and gets them to do something about it! This journey points out many common beliefs that most United States citizens hold, leading them to think America is a great country. However, a closer look reveals a completely different picture. The author covers many subjects including; defense spending, weapons of mass destruction, oil, depleted uranium, genocide, monopolies, mass media control, propaganda, skewed history, missing votes, secret government policies, WTO, NAFTA, FTAA, sweat-shop labor, the United Nations, the pharmaceutical industry, AMA, FDA, vaccines, fluoride, National Security, CIA, FBI, terrorism, the constitution, wars, distractions and apathy, and finally the events of 9/11/2001.
