Our country is in self-inflicted decline, and in a position to be permanently weakened or even destroyed by those elected and appointed to lead it.

As many current U.S. Senators and Representatives look toward re-election in 2012, a new book is proposing a solution to steer America off of what some consider a path of self-destruction by removing re-election from the congressional picture.

In “American Manifesto” (published by iUniverse), author Robin Fawsett brings readers a call to action. By recommending and explaining a mandatory one-term limit for the House and Senate, Fawsett discusses his thoughts on how beneficial this change would be for the restoration of America by keeping arrogant, self-serving and irresponsible elected politicians out of Washington.

“Our country is in self-inflicted decline, and in a position to be permanently weakened or even destroyed by those elected and appointed to lead it,” says Fawsett. “Senators and House members are fueling the fire by proposing legislation and voting in ways calculated to keep themselves in power instead of in our interests.”

Aiming to educate readers on what Fawsett believes to be the critical importance of federal legislators’ official actions, the relatively short and easy-to-read “American Manifesto” proposes a proactive solution that would eliminate the expensive and often corrupt cycle of self-interest and re-election. Fawsett offers a strong foundation of ideas for making federal lawmakers work for us instead of, as he believes, for themselves, thus preventing further damage to the United States in a way that stimulates interest and encourages critical thinking. He identifies and explains organizations and causes which have their way with both Congress and us because of congressional hunger for re-election, including the American Left, labor unions, trial lawyers, environmentalists and far-right causes.

Addressing her views on the severity of Washington’s current path, Fawsett highlights the important stake that all American voters have in changing the future.

“The book does not advocate a conservative approach, a liberal approach, or any specific ideology-driven action,” says Fawsett. “Instead, it contains original ideas and examples all directed toward solving the problem of a declining America.”
