Overview

Do you believe America’s best days are long past? Do you feel that American politicians are more beholden to the special interests that put money in their pockets rather than to the citizens they have the honor to represent? Do you worry that America’s financial future is now in the hands of foreign interests? If so, raise your hand. If so, now is the time to stand up and be heard.

This is the challenge that is at the core of the thought provoking book, If I Were King. In it, author, K.J. Galt, takes a majestic approach to solving the problems facing America. With easy to understand, logical, step by-step regal edicts, Galt proposes fundamental changes to how the United States government interacts with its citizens and the rest of the world. The changes address daunting issues such as the War on Terror, a failing public school system, the widening wealth gap, a bulging federal deficit and rising health care costs.

If I Were King establishes the premise: The power in a self-governing society must lie with the governed and not with the government. This is the division of power envisioned by the Founding Fathers. This is the division of power that can only be realized by the collective efforts of the governed.

By the way, you can put your hand down now. People are starting to stare.

Meet the Author

Robert Kennedy once said: "Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream of things that never were and say why not." If Robert Kennedy were alive today I'm afraid I would be a big disappointment to him. I am one of those people who look at things the way they are and asks why. Even as a child I was always the one who questioned the status quo and was never able to accept the all too common explanation, "because that is the way we have always done it".

I am also a proud American who is worried that a day will come when my family and I are driven from the country we love due to either an overbearing government, civil unrest, or both. I desperately do not want this day to come. So desperate, that I have written a book in an effort to challenge the status quo and because I can no longer accept the way things are.

Frankly, I don't know whether the proposals in If I Were King are possible. The real purpose of this book is to create a sense of urgency in this country so that people who are a lot smarter than I am will think of some "out of the box" solutions to the problems that ail America. Otherwise, I fear, years from now historians will talk about the fall of the United States of America in the same way historians today talk about the fall of the Roman and British Empires.

I hope that you are interested in reading If I Were King because someone who has read it recommended you do so. I hope this person also recommended you purchase If I Were King so that you could make up your own mind as to whether it is merely the ranting of a wild-eyed lunatic or the writing of a person genuinely concerned with the future of all Americans. If after reading If I Were King you believe the latter is true, please tell others to buy my ebook. True change for America will only come to pass through the collective efforts of well meaning people who can no longer accept the way things are.
