Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The United States is on the brink of social, economic and political collapse. Large numbers of American families operate daily in chaos and whirl. The nation's economy is in shambles and much of the country's government is corrupt. Return to First Principles examines a number of socioeconomic and political events which have caused the United States to depart radically from its foundational roots grounded in First Principles. These developments have placed the nation on a Marxist-Socialist path to tyranny. The breakdown of the nation's banking system and the decay of corporate America has resulted in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. If these conditions are left unchecked, there is a high probability of a full-blown financial meltdown resulting in the destruction of civil society. This book defines what First Principles are, introduces a new political 'ism' and explores a number of ways as to how the nation can repair itself-namely by Returning to First Principles.
