UPDATED IN FEBRUARY 2017
The old guy is back in operation after some health setbacks, just turned 96.
The original analysis for USGOV.FIX was done following the 2008 meltdown. A retired Computer plus Information Technology pioneer I have followed government for my adult life. The original analysis was a broad overview of the nations government. Originally published in 2010 USGov.Fix was updated in 2012 to reflect the upcoming election. The primary intent was to initiate a citizen dialogue to address the very obvious problems in the institutional government.
In 2013 the second book of the USGov.Fix series was published. Titled USGOV.REBUILD it dealt in more detail concentrating on the institutional government and the economy. Up to that point I had reached the conclusion that while there were basic governmental flaws they were fixable.
With the continued governmental erosion I went back to the analytical drawing board and determined there are deeper flaws which are destroying the nation. The nation is in decline and in the new century these flaws have coalesced into critical mass. This initiated the third book in the series. The Nation in Decline is now available on Amazon. At age 94 I didn’t have time to write a long book. A very concise book it can be read in an hour and provides a powerful message on the Nations decline. I priced it at six bucks so anyone can afford it. It’s also available on Kindle.
Starting with the Constitution the book identifies the flaws which have allowed the creation of an inadequate institutional government which is simply inadequate to manage this great nation. The major factors leading to the decline are identified in a conversational mode intended to initiate a citizens dialogue. That was my original objective with USGOV.FIX. Both the original books and the new one is available on Amazon.
In summation the nine years I have worked on the project has seen only continued erosion of our Federal Government. The latest election was unquestionable testimony to that fact. My focus is now shifting to one single objective. The need for Congressional term limits for Congress has been recognized for decades and certainly been a key point in the USGov.Fix evaluation.
I will keep you posted on requirements to meet this objective.
