A Manifesto for the Radical Center

America is frozen. We have failed to face our nation's most crucial challenges--and we are about to pay the price.

When it comes to solving our country's problems, we have become utterly paralyzed: bipartisanship has lulled us into a deadlock, preventing us from taking action. Yet we can no longer ignore the inevitable catastrophes or hand them off to Washington to fix--they must be addressed now, or we will suffer the long-term consequences.

In the New York Times bestseller Becoming China's Bitch , Peter Kiernan presents an unflinching manifesto in which he explores five factors that have sustained our national paralysis, then uncovers the ten challenges that pose the greatest threat to the future of America. Presented from a fresh yet informative Centrist perspective, these ten impending catastrophes include our semiconscious dependency on China, our lack of a centrally coordinated intelligence effort, our downward-spiraling health-care system, and the continually expanding problem of illegal immigration. In a logical, personal, and persuasive voice, Kiernan offers radical yet common-sense solutions to these challenges--solutions that every American must acknowledge and act upon before it's too late.

With provocative insight and analytical depth, Becoming China's Bitch is the answer to securing our country's immediate future and restoring our national soul.

A must read for those who are disenchanted with our current politics and the extremism of the alt-right and alt-left.

The author, former partner at Goldman Sachs, who made money from promoting the offshoring of American jobs, and selling credit derivatives to China, now tells us they are the "soft" enemy? They who created the problem and profited from it, always seem to also want to "create the solution" and profit from that as well? Sorry, Petey, but a bogus book is a bogus book, Goldman Sachs guy!
