Big money controls our local and federal governments, enriching the few at the top, and uses the media to brainwash the citizens so that they do not recognize the extent of their control.

Could a third major political party be the key to change for the working class? A new book supports this idea alongside an overview of the U.S. worker.

In “Anyone That Works for a Living and Votes Republican is an Idiot” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Clyde Coughenour brings readers an alternative to the typical calls for change in Washington. Intended for the working class with whom Coughenour himself so closely identifies, the book illustrates the need for a Progressive Workers’ Party against the backdrop of an in-depth look into the past.

“The book was written because I’m seeing the United States being destroyed,” says Coughenour. “Big money controls our local and federal governments, enriching the few at the top, and uses the media to brainwash the citizens so that they do not recognize the extent of their control.”

Touching on relevant issues and the U.S. worker’s lack of individual power, the book addresses an overall need to save the U.S. Constitution. Expanding along the lines of Teddy Roosevelt’s Progressive Party platform, the book aims to show that the worker is the losing target.

“Poverty and money are being engineered for political and monetary gain,” says Coughenour. “Laws are being manipulated for a private profit. This book truly illustrates why we need a Progressive Workers’ Party to salvage an independent, viable American democracy and establish the middle class for ‘We the People’ as intended.”
