A million Americans sacrificed their lives fighting for democracy throughout the world, while the whole time it was denied to them at home. Finally a book that tells the truth.
While doing research for a college term paper, Joe Howe, a young paralegal student, discovers a shocking truth about the American presidential electoral process. A bold faced lie taught in our schools followed by a charade of an election in adult life and the tragic results long forgotten in history.
The real power of electing the President lies not with the people as popularly thought, but rather with a band of nameless, faceless, unaccountable politicians known as the Electoral College.
Unable to persuade anyone already in power to address this fatal flaw, Joe Howe decides to run a pseudo-campaign for congress in hopes of drawing attention to the problem. But when the incumbent congressman dies just before the primary election, his pseudo-campaign suddenly turns real.
The Gambit is an entertaining story of a young and naïve man's odyssey into the strange world of modern day politics, a lesson in untaught history and a warning of a great constitutional crisis destined to befall us if not resolved.
