Description

It's the near future, and thanks to a perfect storm of reckless banking practices, hyperinflation, a stock market gone mad, and the negligence of our elected officials, the entire social, political, and economic infrastructure of America has collapsed. Chaos reigns in the streets, medical treatment is no longer available, and a silent coup has placed a dangerous group of men at the helm of a false government. America's fate is in the hands of those few individuals who have the survival skills, the faith, and the forethought to return this country to the state its founding fathers intended.

    Decent book. Not as good as his others. The book would be much better if he didn't write as if the only people who would survive TEOTWAWKI would be Christians.

    James Wesley Rawles writes a story about a financial disaster that changes the world. The price of oil skyrocketed making it unaffordable. The U.S. dollar falters and electricity goes off the grid. This makes gangs and criminals able to get together to rob and plunder.Groups of people have prepared for the disaster and get together in various places to defend their freedom. Friends and family are very important and other significant things are a strong faith in a higher power, a belief in freedom, a supply of food and clothing and a desire to bring back law to where the founding fathers wanted.The plot is complicated but authentic and the characters colorful.

    More a diary of events than a continuous story with weapons selection and many religious contexts provided.
  • (2/5)
    I previously read Rawles' Patriots and Survivors books so when I saw Founders that it was going to be more of the same. However, it is connected somehow to his other two books, but I don't know if this is a sequel, prequel, or just part of the same story. This third book continues part christianity, part apocalypse and part gun catalog. This is an odd book with a lot of copy/paste from the other two books. In the end, the nationalism wins out and all good people go home. It demonstrates, once again, that all politics is local and political power comes from the barrel of a gun...I was disappointed by Founders.

    Loved it, really shows why we need to value our freedom.
  • (4/5)
    Overall a good book a out survival if the world ends. The author seems to have a real love for the Christian religion and a hate for tattoos. Once I got past the Bible thumping parts I enjoyed the books.
