Straight from the living room of middle class America... There are plenty of political books out there written by "experts"-career politicians, economists, journalists, and Washington insiders who tell us what to believe based on whether they are "red" or "blue." This isn't one of those books. Thoughts of a Common American is a short, accessible message written by a regular person-a husband, a father, a former Marine, and a guy with a 9-to-5 job-who got fed up by the apathy and disregard that he felt from the political leaders who were supposed to be representing his best interests, not their own. This is more than a journal of frustration, though. This is a book of recommendations for what we can do to win back our country. Full of fresh ideas and perspectives on everything from campaign promises to education reform, taxes to social welfare, G.C. Gonzalez challenges the idea that politics is too complicated to be understood by the average American, and shows us that there are things we can do to make the political systems once again work for us, rather than the Democratic and Republican parties.
