America Vs. Americaby Cody Weinmann
With the beauty of a nation, struggling in the midst of a ravished economy, Weinmann attempts to unify the breadths of patriotism within all Americans, with the more than utter distaste for the current political system, and some solutions, lavishly written for real change. Weinmann seeks to blend self-sufficiency, and lowering bureaucracy in the lines of fifty-two eloquently, bluntly written poems that do more than hint at our recession of lost wages, inflation, outrageous devastation, apparently lost hope, and yet, a shining eagerness that the author says will change our society for the better-that is, if we decide to trust our own minds for the creation and delivery of value, and have the consistency to govern our own needs-the definition of our rights. This anthology is to be the 1st of a set of anthologies to set the century. Hoping for an end to the war and peace and prosperity at home. It's a poetry anthology that speaks to the heart while saving generations from ruin. It is hoped that our nation will provide and prosper despite the ever-toughening political, and social boundaries.

In a country (and a world) of hyper-partisanship, America Vs. America does not coddle a cause, political party, ideology, or entity. That alone may cause some readers to dismiss the book, or deride it as indecisive. That was my initial impression until some poems forced me to step outside the partisan pigeonholes and look at the bigger picture. The author tends to lead the reader into a complex maze of irony until the pattern appears to suggest the bigger picture is so obvious I fail to see it. The problem starts with me, and the solution is found in the same place. The poems are short, flow nicely, and has plenty of re-readability. Approaching it from different perspectives can change the tone of some poems, such as "Sounds of Fire", may have an interventionist feel to it, yet at the same time, leaves an open end to isolationist lamentation. With that said, this book is not for everybody, and may even anger some. However, if one does dare to take the partisan blinders off for a moment, it may at least entice the reader to question a position.
