Do we have the courage to stand up to corruption and the oligarchy?

Many presidential candidates have claimed to be the “people’s president.” It’s a term used to indicate that a candidate is just one of the people, who cares about the issues that apply to the common man; not just the wealthy and powerful.

But what if the “common man” decided to run for president?

In John C. Bednar’s new novel, “The People’s President: In the Nation’s Service,” he gives readers a glimpse into an alternate reality, where money isn’t the ticket to political office and the underdog has a shot at turning the establishment on its head.

“’The People’s President’ sends to a divided America the necessary remedy for our political ailments,” Hubert H. Humphrey III, son of the late Vice President Hubert Humphrey, said. “The protagonist of this story has the most basic and fundamental cure: accept and act on your civic duty to participate in our American Democracy!”

Author John C. Bednar has spent his career teaching in higher education. He believes education and individual, civic responsibility are the keys to mending a politically divided nation.

“We are all individually responsible for the state of our democracy,” Bednar said. “Money has become far too important in politics. Do we have the courage to stand up to corruption and the oligarchy?”
