‘The American Dream,’ says another, ‘has turned into a nightmare, for millions of Americans who are now forced to live on the street, their homes and family possessions gone and no jobs to be had. Only the very rich are doing very well.’”
Carmel, N.Y. (PRWEB) September 21, 2013
In his forward-thinking new novel, “A New Brand of Patriotism: Getting America Back” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Paul Ehrlich uses fictional characters to describe the collapse of the U.S. economy in a story that could easily be ripped from today’s headlines.
Set in New York, “A New Brand of Patriotism” focuses on five former Air Force pilots who meet every week to discuss the deterioration of the country they risked their lives to defend. They’ve witnessed an undeniable downward trend take place over the past 30 years and feel that America is no longer the country they loved and fought for.
Together, the five former pilots recruit a wealthy couple, Jim and Vera Huffingston, to help finance their plan to get the country back on track. A new political party is created and the election of a new president grows ever closer to becoming a reality. Will this group of determined servicemen be able to change the course of history and succeed in their efforts to redistribute the country’s wealth?
An excerpt from “A New Brand of Patriotism”:
“‘Many people feel that this is no longer the country they loved and fought for,’ says one. ‘The American Dream,’ says another, ‘has turned into a nightmare, for millions of Americans who are now forced to live on the street, their homes and family possessions gone and no jobs to be had. Only the very rich are doing very well.’”
