Independence Day

Two hundred thirty-six years ago, men constructed a written document that stood up to a government that they felt restricted the rights of the people.  

Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning) was written because David McKoy felt that our rights as individuals were being diminished.  The book is set in the very near future and is a work of fiction. Even so, to a degree some of the events are unfolding before our eyes. Some prime examples, that David just mentioned to me, are the latest Supreme Court rulings regarding Healthcare as well as recent actions by Congress and our current President

Our fictional band of brothers and sisters in arms, fight against a government that seemed to become tyrannical overnight.  Then again, looks can be deceiving. As you read further into the book, you'll see quotations by the Founding Fathers, such as Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. Both are signers of the document that we celebrate every Fourth of July. 

I highly doubt that one individual alone would have had the power to create our great nation.  Looking at the signatures on this great document proves to me that when a group of individuals who have a like-minded goal get together...great things can happen. Our Founding Fathers worked and fought hard to make a statement with the Declaration of Independence. Many have fought and died for this document plus the ones that followed it. Together they made the United States of America, what it is today. 

I'd also like to express my gratitude the Independent Authors' community for their ongoing support.  More importantly, a big thanks for those that blazed the path ahead of us. If there weren't programs already in place, our book may never have been born. One could consider our book controversial and definitely not for the main stream market.  Then again, I feel sure Patriots of yesteryear were considered to be upstarts who didn't know what they were talking about either.  If they had taken that guff, where would we be today?

Thanks for taking the time to 'listen' to my thoughts. Hope you have had an enjoyable Fourth of July holiday.
