The book details the historical development of the federal government. It describes how the American middle class has been abandoned by those who control the federal government. Career insiders, since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt, have used their influence and power to promote their love of big, tax-and-spend, centralized government and a radical social ideology, while providing high paying taxpayer-funded jobs for themselves. Further chapters outline the loss of inalienable rights in so many areas of life.
Twenty-four examples of constitutional usurpation are thoroughly explored. Finally, techniques are suggested whereby citizens can organize to restore the freedoms originally guaranteed by the Constitution.
