Overview

The majority of Americans don't believe in the system anymore. We don't think the politicians really care about us. We don't perceive any difference between the two parties. We don't think the government acts in our best interests. We are disenchanted, fed up, and angry. The press doesn't write about this frustration: It's not a story because everyone accepts it as a given. But in fact this is a massive opinion shift that has gone unnoticed, unreported, and unresolved. We are in the midst of the Second American Revolution - and nobody is talking about it. This book not only recognizes this reality; it responds to it, and gives it expression. And it harnesses the people's frustration and rage into positive energy. The message is clear: "We can make the system work. We can fix America. Just let us be heard." James Patterson and Peter Kim, heads of major advertising agencies, found a way to combine the spirit of 1776 with the technology of the twenty-first century. Using advanced market-research methods, they located a typical American town, put several issues to debate in a town hall setting, and talked with thousands of Americans across the nation to determine what the people say needs to be done to solve the country's most pressing problems. Most important, Patterson and Kim conducted the most democratic referendum ever held in the country to determine the people's choice for president of the United States. This book is a clarion call, a shot to be heard 'round the land. It articulates loudly and clearly - and for the first time - the true voice of the people. No politics, no hype, no bull.
