Summary
Job outsourcing. Perpetual busy signals at government agencies. Slashed paychecks. Stolen elections. A war without end, fatally mismanaged. Ordinary Americans on both the Right and Left are tired of being disenfranchised by corrupt politicians of both parties and are organizing to change the status quo. Author Sirota takes us far from the national media spotlight into the trenches where real change is happening--from the headquarters of the most powerful third party in America to the bowels of the U.S. Senate; from an ExxonMobil shareholder meeting to a vigilante force on the Mexican border. This is on-the-ground reporting that immerses us in politics at its most personal. Sirota also shows how the uprising is, at its core, a reaction to faux "bipartisanship"--whereby Republican and Democratic lawmakers join together in putting the agenda of corporate interests above those of ordinary citizens.--From publisher description
