About the novel, excerpts

An Act of Self-Defense is set ten years into the future. The nation’s federal (and state) governments are nearing economic collapse as a result of political corruption, an un-repayable national debt, the selling of House and Senate legislation for power and money, massive devaluation of the national currency, etc.

All of these problems are the result of power hungry members of Congress who keep themselves in office by buying votes and with legislation making it nearly impossible for a challenger to defeat them.
