Independents Day: Awakening the American Spirit

The bestselling author of War on the Middle Class looks at the critical issues and challenges of the 2008 election

In Independents Day, Lou Dobbs examines the public policy choices over the past thirty years that have eroded individual liberties, disenfranchised the middle class, reduced worker rights and pay, and led our nation into social and political division at home as well as into conflict around the world. Dobbs lays out the folly of continuing to follow existing domestic and foreign policies that have enriched and entrenched the elites, and burdened to the breaking point the rest of America. He posits a determined course for both prosperity and the survival of the American dream in a society that is desperate for new leadership and new ideas. Most important, Dobbs explores how we must and can restore the fundamental national value of equality of rights and opportunity for all Americans.

Independents Day is an independent populist s view of the critical issues and challenges that confront the presidential candidates and American voters as we approach the 2008 election.
