Overview

In 1976, Ronald Reagan, at the Republican Convention, announced he placed a letter in a time capsule to be opened in Los Angeles in 2076. In a speech given at that convention, Reagan expressed his concern that the people of 2076 would never get to read the letter because it spoke of individual freedom. America, 2076—the United States has been fundamentally changed, and the government controls every aspect of daily life—medical decisions, consumption, speech, transportation, even the right to be alive—all in the name of social justice. Michael Adams, a journalism student, writes an article about America’s Tercentennial and wonders if his generation understands what it means to be an American. He discovers a plot to destroy the Reagan letter, its message no longer welcome in a country where liberty has died and tyranny rules. He turns to the man who introduced him to Reagan’s ideas—Calvin Marshall, a history professor who is hiding, and only his granddaughter, Michael’s ex-girlfriend, Jackie Perez, knows of his whereabouts. Soon, Michael goes on the run, persecuted by a federal agent determined to silence him at any cost. To keep the letter from being destroyed, he has to face the agent, community organizers, rats, strippers, high-speed trains, bandits, Obamobiles, a terrible family dinner, and a bad movie. As he continues to run for his life, Reagan’s warning becomes all too real. “They probably won’t get to read the letter at all because it spoke of individual freedom . . .” www.2076reaganslastword.com

I must confess that the plot in this Novel is very plausible. Since the early 1900 special interest groups have been busy implementing very communistic/socialistic policies. Especially true when Woodrow Wilson became president. Since the early 60's these socialist policies have been implemented without Americans noticing. Michael Santos hit the nail on the head. I HIGHLY recommend reading the book. I grew up in a Communist country and know the warning signs.

Michael Santos, author of the fictional novel, "2076- Reagan's Last Word", spins a realistic tale of the progression of social justice in America by the year 2076. The premise is upon an address given in 1976, by Ronald Reagan, at the Republican National Convention, where he announced that he placed a letter in a time capsule to be opened in Los Angeles in 2076. In a time when the message of individual freedom that America was founded upon is no longer welcome, Michael Adams (journalism student) is forced to go on the run from the government while trying to get the message of Ronald Reagan's letter out to the public. Dr. Michael Santos's writing skills, the fluidity of the book, hooked me right away. If you have read, for example, The Left Behind series, by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins or The Christmas Sweater, by Glenn Beck you'll understand how quickly you will read through the pages and how difficult it is to put down. Dr. Santos captures the reader's essence, sucking you into scene after scene of action and suspense. 2076- Reagan's Last Word is the epitome of real heroism against all odds. Although 2076 is a work of fiction, it is prophetic of America's future.

That is what this intense thriller is all about. In the America of 2076 freedom is no longer in existence, and therefore a letter written by Ronald Reagan, which speaks precisely of freedom, becomes an existential threat to that society.
