In order for Americans to turn things around, they must first educate themselves as to what is really going on in Washington and start demanding results.
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) June 22, 2015
Local Author Donald Bogard tackles the most pressing problems the Federal Government has failed to resolve in his latest book: Power Versus Country. The book is now available for purchase across the country via the author's website, donaldbogard.com, and Amazon.com.
Like most Americans, Donald Bogard is not satisfied with Congress’s inability to address some of the country’s biggest issues. In 2012, congressional approval ratings were as low as 10 percent, yet reelection rates of member of the House are typically well above 90 percent. The reality is that the American political system has created a “political elite”, who is motivated by power more so than the common good. And as long as voters keep reelecting them while they fail to provide the solutions our country so desperately needs, change will never happen.
Donald Bogard dives deeply into the problems of Congressional Perks, Pork-Barrel Legislation, Illegal Immigration, and Social Security; which he deems as the most pressing and solvable issues that need to be immediately addressed before it’s too late. Not only does Bogard reveal startling truths relating to each topic, more importantly, he takes a bi-partisan and well researched approach to offering the most reasonable long-term solutions for each. Congress has failed to address these issues because many of these hot-button issues because it is not in the selfish interest of politicians to deal with. In order for Americans to turn things around, they must first educate themselves as to what is really going on in Washington and start demanding results.
Every American voter can benefit by reading Bogard’s book, Power Versus Country: Are The Political Elite Willing To Solve Our Nation’s Problems? The author lays bare some shocking facts, large and small. For example, a path to Social Security solvency has been around—and ignored—since the 1980’s; our taxpayer dollars subsidize every single ticket to the tune of $100 per flight out of the John Murtha Airport in Pennsylvania; members of Congress can be reimbursed for mileage at a higher rate than the IRS allows for the rest of us; and illegal immigrants can obtain “legitimate” citizenship documents by renting birth certificates, easily obtained from public records. Appropriate action is unlikely to ever happen until voters educate themselves as to what is really going on in Washington and begin to to support the necessary sacrifices that are needed to turn these problems around. Americans who wish to start building a better future for themselves and for the next generation, should do themselves a favor and read Power Versus Country before the next election.
