Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.

-Ronald Reagan

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.  -P. J. O'Rourke

Statistics about the fall of the U.S. economy…

*53% of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.

*According to Forbes, the 400 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined.

*Today, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless.  This is the first time that has ever happened in our history.

*Overall, the Social Security system is facing a 134 trillion dollar shortfall over the next 75 years.​

*There are less Americans working in manufacturing today than there was in 1950, even though the population of the country has more than doubled since.

*More than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been permanently shut down since 2001.

*Back in 1980, the U.S. national debt was less than one trillion dollars.  Today, it is rapidly approaching 17 trillion dollars…

​*According to The Economist, the United States was the best place in the world to be born into back in 1988.  Today, the United States is only tied for 16th place.

"America is rotting out from within. Long neglecting its needy and poor currently living in war zones called inner cities, an angry, growing, disenfranchised class that has also had enough finds itself with nothing left to lose. With more than half of this country’s two plus million Americans of color trapped in prisons, the US is but one false flag away from declaring martial law and unleashing its FEMA roundups. Targeted will be those fighting back, the activists, dissidents, dissenters, the destitute, any and all Americans not part of the one third of the US population that make up the military security complex will be considered fair game. All those Halliburton-refurbished and newly built, empty privatized prisons at tax payer expense await to be filled by shackled and betrayed Americans of all colors."

Roadbone is a fictional maze of misery, sex, and violence, as told by a man who is surprisingly likable and rational in his reasoning, if not necessarily justified in his actions. This book was written in one draft and was not edited nor proofread. The result is an improvisational novel.
