Summary

"From right wing conservatives to Wall Street fat cats, progressive writer Jill Cody delivers a no-holds-barred look at a country that's becoming politically, morally, and financially bankrupt." - Thom Hartmann, nationally syndicated talk show host and bestselling author

The American people have been abandoned. Behemoth corporations, the uber-rich, the media, Congress, and the Supreme Court have withdrawn their support from “We, the People”, in spite of duty, allegiance, or responsibility to American citizens.

Billionaires and corporations are flourishing as they abandon loyalty to employees and America, both forces priming the environment to ensure their great success. The same wealthy people and corporations are hoarding billions of dollars offshore to avoid paying taxes while, at the same time, are privatizing their profits and subsidizing their losses. By doing so, they are intentionally abandoning their civic responsibility and culpability for the obscene accumulation of profit and impeding the government’s ability to serve the public good.

When you read this eye-opening expose, you will discover:
• who launched the Velvet Coup
• which seminal moments in U.S. history are threatening our democracy today
• what Citizen Voter Type you are, and how to become a powerful citizen
• what Living in the Black or Living in the Red means, and how those choices could either rescue or ruin America
• how we can reconstruct our lives and laws to save our middle class and democracy

Jill Cody, a well-known, influential educator, consultant and advocate, presents an expanded view of abandonment to illustrate how this calculated crisis is destroying our democracy. This book's optimism speaks to the hope that, when we realize we have lost something of great value, we will fight to get it back.

After reading America Abandoned, you will know it's time to be bold and recapture our democracy.
