Revitalizing America takes an in-depth look at the promises of democracy made to Americans and the world, and the betrayals of those promises. The promises laid out in the Declaration of Independence, the Preamble to the Constitution, the Gettysburg Address and the Pledge of Allegiance have created a Santa Claus type myth about our government that is shattered every day in the world of real politics. The victims are "we the people." Our grievances can be recited just as the American revolutionists called out the king's offenses in the Declaration of Independence. They run the gamut from violations of human and civil rights, massive secret tests using poisonous materials on the citizenry without public knowledge or consent to old fashioned bribery and greed of public officials. It's our duty to remember our country was born through a revolution, and we must revitalize our democracy through a political and economic revolution. The people need to take back the government.
