A Highly Entertaining Walk through the White House
Reviewed By: PapaBear
The underlying fictional story of the “American Common Man” becoming President harkens back to Mr. Smith goes to Washington. With little doubt that our politically-split society, from any point of view, has lost touch with critical-thinking, President YOU, lays out an extraordinary (and well researched) outline of issues well suited for any high school history/civics, or college political science class. Augustus Treatise is an unlikely candidate for U.S. President, but he wins – now what? Each chapter focuses on a political issue that President Treatise must deal with against the cabal of Washington D. C. insiders trying to maintain “business as usual” from the pressures of big-money, lobbyists, and special interests where Congress has operated as their mouthpieces for policy and monetary enrichment while the interests and voice of the “citizen” remains buried under a rock in the desert. The book does not tell the reader how to think. Rather, it inherently calls upon the reader to discern how (and more importantly) why an issue has or should move in a particular direction. Anyone who has had a passing thought of, “well, if I were President,” should consider President YOU a must read.
