“What Happened to America?” is about the last forty years and a little about the 1897–1929 eras. This book unravels what led up to the recession of the thirties, how long it took to get people going again, and the systems that were designed so people would have safety nets.

Author Cecil M. Bryar Sr. remembers that in the year 2012, he saw a familiar name running for president. Knowing what this man did in Massachusetts, he decided to start writing. He made a bunch of fliers and started to hand these out to people randomly, explaining what he knew to be true—about what he had done to the people of Massachusetts. Mr. Romney believed that it was okay for him to outsource jobs, force people to buy insurance, and do everything possible to benefit the conglomerates and millionaires, but his idea of helping the people by outsourcing jobs was not the best. As people know, this does nothing to benefit the people in their daily lives.

“What Happened to America?” aims to help readers understand what really happened to America. For forty years, the country has been outsourcing jobs; people have been getting paid by someone. Republicans have outsourced their oil production also. Food and other great deals of daily necessities are from other countries as well. The lack of job had made the welfare system grow to the point where this has become a way of life. They have altered the ways they get jobs to the point where the employment system works for the conglomerate, not the people.

Tax on unemployment—what does it really mean? America as a society need to wake up and understand what these representatives of the past have done to the American people as a whole.

Bryar hopes to tell a story about of what he experienced firsthand in his daily life and his personal experiences. No matter what people said, all the farmers went to Washington and there was all that protesting from 1980–1981. Once again, it fell on deaf ears. Hopefully, people are now doing what is right for the benefit of everyone, the one percent. The trickle-down effect will soon benefit the people sooner or later.

“What Happened to America?” was featured at the 2013 New England Library Association/Maine Library Association Book Exhibit on Oct. 20 - 22, 2013 Portland, ME and will be featured at the 2014 Connecticut Library Association on Apr. 28 - 29, 2014 Cromwell, CT.

About the Author
Cecil M. Bryar Sr. has been on his own since he was 12. His love for cars turned out to be his means of support and tarde. Growing up in the fifties and sixties was truly living the American way. The muscle car era was an unbelievable experience. His varied life experiences in the streets and meeting different people have instilled in him the values of honesty and hard work. His father also taught him how to judge right from wrong. The Vietnam days taught him about propaganda and how to distinguish what was what. The eighties taught him who was about benefiting themselves. Also, watching the speech about the North American Accord be created and seeing Mr. Romney during the republican debates reminded him of Richard Nixon. This prompted Bryar to start writing about his life experiences and this is how this book was created.
