UPDATED IN AUGUST 2015
The old guy is back in operation after some health setbacks. Used the time to write a new book which will be described below.
The original analysis for USGOV.FIX was done following the 2008 meltdown. A retired computer and Information Technology pioneer I have followed government for my entire adult life. The original analysis was a broad overview of the nation. Originally published in 2010 it 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 on fixing government was published. Titled USGOV.REBUILD it dealt in more detail with 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 fundamental flaws which are destroying the nation. The nation is in decline and in the new century these flaws have coalesced into critical mass.
My new book 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. The bottom line is a 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 are available on Amazon.
I have picked up several hundred twitter followers on fixing government and hope we can get the ball rolling again. I have a WordPress blog called govf.wordpress.com. Use this to express opinions.
