In a bid to rekindle the torch of democracy, a longtime federal executive explores the political discord that has so many people fighting with each another. If you're concerned about the future of the United States and the shortcomings of today's political system, then you're part of an ever-growing club. Author William W. Robé, who spent more than Forty years in the service of his country, is deeply disturbed by the lack of harmony within the halls of government. Social, economic, and demographic changes pose challenges, but Tea Party activists, Wall Street occupiers, and others are only making our problems worse. In this detailed commentary on the current political system, Robé considers a different approach to understanding American economics; truths about the national debt and deficit spending; two flaws in Adam Smith's original version of capitalism; and ways to find common ground on important issues. If the country's citizens remain divided, democracy will collapse. It won't be because of an invading army; it will be because of internal strife. Even so, it's not too late to rekindle the light of freedom through unity. It begins by recognizing that Divided We Fall .


This book has been written to share my concerns over the future of our great country. I have witnessed several signs during recent years which indicate our form of government could collapse if we do not take remedial action. Yes, our democracy could go the way of past republics and cease to exist. What makes this even more regrettable is the fact that this collapse will be caused by internal strife and not from any invading army. So many citizens are misguided in their understanding of democracy and our form of government. They appear to be living midst a blinding fog. Reading, understanding, and applying the concepts contained within this book could solve the problem. I truly hope so for that is my intent! This book should not be read like a novel. A quick read is meaningless. One must read each paragraph and digest the thought being presented. In so doing, the many dots contained herein can be connected. A big picture begins to formulate. Soon the reader will visualize a clear and unobstructed view of the future—a future in which our form of government continues to prosper. Failure to connect the dots will lead to the end of our democracy. It becomes simply a matter of time before we will destroy ourselves.
