The author, John Larkin, is a "somewhat retired" Patriotic American from the Minneapolis/St Paul area of Minnesota.
He is the Founding Director of The 56 Club - an organization founded in the spirit of the fifty-six very courageous signers of the Declaration of Independence.
The 56 Club has a mission of bringing Americans together in hopes to preserve longstanding American values and principles; and to help preserve them for generations yet to come.
"I have my two children and their spouses, very soon-to-be two grandchildren; and I would hope and pray that they grow up in an even better America than the one I grew up in."
"For the first time in our Nations history, the current generation .. my generation .. may not leave America better off then when we .. when I .. got here."
"That saddens me deeply .. it disturbs me immensely."
"I do believe there is a way back to our greatness. I do believe there is still hope in reversing the tragic directions that we're going in."
"I believe that path is spelled out in the book .. "I'll Be Running for President .. will you join me?"
"Please .. read the book. Share it with others. Let's do all that we can to return this magnificent Country to its divinely inspired greatness."
