 My book "If I Had a Country” finishes with a question and answer section. After reading the book feel free to ask any question and I will do my best to answer it. Your question might appear (with your permission) in the next edition.

This book, if followed, will save America for the next generation who will be burdened with the waste and oppressive government caused by my generation, because my generation failed to stop the Progressives in their quest to make America a Socialist country, May God help America.

Ask any question that is not in the book already and I will post your question and my answer below.


Q=  I just returned from watching the movie, America by Dinesh D'Souza. What a great movie that I think all Americans should see. It parallels your ebook. Did you have something to do with the movie?

A= No I did not. I started this ebook in 2008 and finished it in 2010. Wish I was involved in such a great movie. What I have written about Progressives in this ebook has been known for a long time but hidden by the main stream media because they agree with Progressive policies. Because this has been done for such a long time great damage has been done to America, without her people not even realize it. Here is what Mr. D'Souza's book jacket says about Progressives:

Progressives are the architects of American decline, and progressivism is the ideology of American suicide. Here's a way to think about what Obama, Hillary, and the progressives are doing. Imagine if they were in charge of a basketball team with a fifty-year track record of success. We hired them as coaches to keep the team winning. Yet they designed plays to ensure the team would lose. They didn't do so because they hated the team, but because they thought it was wrong for the team to win so much. The long previous record of victories, they argued, was based on exploitation, and it would be better for everyone if our team wasn't so dominant. If we had such a coaching staff, there is little doubt that we would get rid of them. We would ask ourselves why we hired them in the first place. (Book jacket).

Q= The way you suggest the government of the Republic of New America be formed would not work. How would this government start?

A= If you mean there would be no federal or state governments in the beginning you are right. A country like I suggest would have to start from the ground up. First a local, then state and finally federal government would have to be formed by the people. I admit it would be difficult but no more difficult than what our founding fathers went through. We would already have a constitution (the U.S. constitution). Why not use it as a starting block. They (the U.S.) don't use it anymore anyway. We already know what mistakes not to make by studying the Progressives. All it would take is freedom loving, hard working, honest, moral people with a love of Liberty in their hearts.

Q= In your book you indicate how great you think our founding fathers were, when in fact I am taught in school, by my teacher, who says: They (Europeans) came here for gold and treasures. To plunder the land and enslave the Indians. Is this true?

A= No, what your teacher says is not true. It is sad that this teacher does not know American History. However I never said they were perfect. To my knowledge there was only one perfect man who ever walked this earth and they crucified him. The truth is that most Europeans and others came to America (the new world) for religious and personal freedoms that was not allowed them in Europe and elsewhere. Almost all of the world at that time was controlled by oppressive governments. These people risked so much to come to America. Can you imagine how dangerous the trip must have been on those old rickety ships? Freedom must have meant more to them than life itself.

It wasn't long after they settled in this new land that the Governments they fled from followed them (especially the British) took over and started suppressing their freedoms again. This is why 1/3 of the colonist took up arms against the English Crown. Yes, only 1/3 of the people had the balls to stand up to the most powerful nation in the world. This 1/3 of freedom loving patriots gave us our constitution, our liberty, our freedoms (which we are loosing at an alarming rate) our rights of free speech and the right to protect our self and love ones. It is hard to believe that just 1/3 of the population did this (with God’s help). However, in doing this they (most of them) lost their property, wealth, health and sometime their lives. Get a old history book (one written before liberals rewrote American history) and read this for yourself. By the way, today this 1/3 would be called Conservatives, Libertarians, grass roots or Tea Party folks.

You might wonder. What was the other 2/3 of the colonist doing? Well the first 1/3 of this group was on the side of England. They were loyal to the King. They believed in big government. they believe government always knows best. They were the folks getting special privileges. They were the ones that looked down their nose at others. They had no qualm dropping on bended knee and kissing the hand of the King or whatever he wanted them to kiss. This 1/3 today would be called Progressives (liberals, leftist, and socialist).

How about the last 1/3? These colonist were neutral. They did not want to get involved. They were happy just sitting back and joining the side that won. It was this group that George Washington feared the most because he did not know who in this group he could trust. This group, because they stood for nothing, owes the most to our founding fathers. They got liberty and freedom without lifting a finger. This 1/3 would be called zombies today. I know this sounds crazy but they are the ones who don’t care about anything other than them-self.

Q= You never indicate who asked the questions in your Q&A section. I would like to know who these people are?

A=Most of those who have sent in questions have requested that I not identify them. I believe they fear the scrutiny they will get from the left and the main stream media (one and the same). These people have helped me by reviewing my ebook and asking questions. Why would I want to put them in danger? Plus I don't know how legal it is to name them. They might sue me.

Q= You say in your book that 90% of Democrats are progressives and 60% of Republicans are progressives. How can you say this? I believe your percentages are much too high.

A= My percentages are right on target. Where are the conservatives in the Democrat party? In the late sixties the progressive Democrats started pushing the conservatives out of their party. Sure they used the few blue dogs left to pass Obama Care (AHCA) then they turned on them when they ran for reelection by not funding them and running liberals against them. A conservative in the Democrat party is as rare as hen's teeth. The Republican progressives started pushing conservatives out of their party after the Reagan years Republican progressives swore (in secret) “ Never another Reagan”. Just look at the voting records of the Republicans and you will see that they vote only 40% conservative and 60% progressive. However I do see some positive conservative shift in the Republican party thanks to the Tea Party. This is why the Tea Party is not liked by many Republican progressives, just as they did not like Reagan. In summarizing, I believe there is some hope for America with the Republican party but none with the Democrats. Unless you like living in a third world country.

Q= I did not even finished your book. I stopped reading when you said the U.S. is not a Democracy. How can you say this?

A= If you would have finished reading the book you may have learned why I say the U.S. is suppose to be a Representative Republic, with Democratization forced upon it by the Progressives of both parties. This was done illegally and is against the U.S. Constitution. The word Democracy is not mentioned in that Constitution. Not even once! Our founding fathers knew what they were doing but the Progressives undid much of the Constitution with out a wimpier from the opposition. What a shame!   

About the 2nd Amendment

Q= Why do you insist on the citizens owning guns? Isn't it unsafe to have so many guns around? Why can’t people just call the police or flee?

A= I believe gun ownership among sane responsible citizens is an absolute right. Guns in the hands of the good slows down or stops the evil. The simple answer is that there are evil people who could mane or kill you in seconds, whereas it would take the police many minutes to come to your aid. As far as fleeing is concerned, can you out run a bullet?

U.S. citizens depend on a firearm 2.5 million times a year to save their lives or the lives of others. You will not hear these true stories told by the main stream media because they have a agenda and this agenda is the disarming of all law biding Americans. They are just too marrow minded to understand that unarmed citizens are totally at the mercy of criminals and bad governments (domestic or foreign) (city, state or federal). This Progressive, so called, main stream media either don’t care or intentionally want Americans to loose their 2nd amendment rights. This bunch of elitist aren't even smart enough to realize that if the 2nd amendment is lost the 1st amendment (freedom of speech) will also be lost, because the man pointing a gun at you telling you to shut-up, wins.

Because of the dishonesty of the main stream media we have to turn to the many home town newspapers and broadcast stations to get the truth out about citizens protecting themselves against the thieves, muggers, rapist, and killers among us. I will be publishing articles from these papers here and will add to them as I find more true stories about citizens protecting them-self, their families, and fellow citizens with firearms, from evil.

Let the articles began:

Jessica Grayson was driving behind a pickup truck when the truck suddenly stopped in front of her, blocking her lane. A man exited the truck and approached Grayson’s vehicle. He began beating on the window and grabbing the door handle in an attempt to get in.
