Most of this book is probably a Michael Moore ish version of Lou Dobbs' latest book In other words it deals mostly with how the middle class is being sueezed and and that it's mostly the Republicans' fault However the author is not beholden to the D as in Democrat label He lumps in Bill Clinton with Reagan and Bushes I and II primarily due to his support of NAFTA and GATT His good guys are FDR and Dwight EisenhowerThe most interesting and chilling passages occur in chapters 7 and 8 Really really interesting parallels are drawn between the rise of fascism in Italy and the rise of the corporatocracy in the USLargely I agree with the book's themes However the book tends to jump around too much The editing could have been professional too
