About the Book

We're currently living in a fantasy world of smoke and mirrors where almost one-half of our population is receiving some level of unearned welfare, financial assistance and/or various other “entitlement” benefits. The number of beneficiaries has not only grown steadily over the generations, but has now reached a point where it has become a way of life…the norm. We've all heard about the “special interest” groups in Washington, well, guess what? Government is its own special interest group…the biggest special interest group of all. With no term limits members become so entrenched, by catering to “their” special interest groups, that their reelections are almost guaranteed each reelection cycle. Government is now only the stooge perpetuating Ponzi economics. Wars are being waged to support the scheme. It is now job creation and economic growth at all costs, when jobs and economic growth are the problems, not the solution. Ponzi credit has created too many jobs. And most of those jobs have nothing to do with individuals making a living or creating tangibles. This planet no longer has government. It has disablement. The global Ponzi credit system is the greatest crime against humanity ever perpetrated. It has squandered the planet's resources and institutionalized un-sustainability. It has created money flow, control and power that make their way into the hands of the undeserving. It has created a global frenzy for profit. Humanity had almost defeated all its predation, competition and disease, only to find itself competing and preyed upon by the worst competition imaginable...itself. It has institutionalized necessity for economic growth and population increase when the planet cannot sustain it. The game controllers are poised to profit from dwindling resources through commodity investment and war. The world's jobs are dependent on the continuation of Ponzi credit creation.

About the Author

About the Author: Richard McKenzie Neal One should never equate education and/or intelligence to wisdom… Richard was born in Hope, Arkansas (Bill Clinton’s boyhood home), in 1941 and his father was gone prior to Richard turning two years old. He never knew the man, but attended his funeral as a sixteen-year-old. Before boarding a Greyhound bus for California, at seventeen, Richard knew two stepfathers and a number of others who were just passing through. During those teen years, before succumbing to the beckoning allure of the outside world, Richard worked at an assortment of low-paying jobs. Summers were spent in the fields…picking cotton and/or watermelons and baling hay. He also worked as a plumber’s helper and a carhop at the local drive-in burger stand. After dropping out of school, eloping and landing in California, he soon realized how far out of his element he had ventured. And without the guidance of his “Constant Companion,” Richard would have spent a lifetime floundering in a sea of ignorance and ineptness…and his books would not exist. Richard’s first book (Fridays With Landon) was driven by his son’s life-altering heroin addiction. He had hoped not to author a sequel, but left the book open-ended due to historical concerns, which did in fact…resurface. For 25 years the family has endured the emotional highs and lows associated with the chaotic, frustrating and more often than not…heartbreaking task of rescuing one of their own, from the always ebbing and flowing tide of addiction. The unintended sequel (The Path to Addiction…) was triggered by a mind-numbing relapse after 30 months of sobriety. The second book was then written to bring closure…one-way or the other. The author advanced several possible scenarios for the ending of that book, but only one of those possibilities was favorable. His third book (The Long Road Home…) is a philosophical journey that we’ll all experience as our time here begins to dwindle. The fourth book (We the People) was driven by what he saw as the dismantling of America and the circumventing of its Constitution. Additionally, the ominous cloud of socialism and a New World Order looming over Washington motivated him to speak up, in spite of political correctness’ muzzle. This, the fifth book was written to confirm and document the realities of those fears and concerns chronicled in the preceding book. While those fears and concerns were driven by the current administration, his nightmare now is the possibility of that same administration being returned to office, for another four years, in 2012. He has grave apprehension regarding America’s future should the unthinkable happen. All five books were written after retiring from a rewarding, thirty-six years in the oil industry. Our success should be measured by what we gave up (what it cost us) to obtain it...and not by what we accomplished and/or accumulated.
