The Second American Revolution - The Building of an Empire.
As a child, Jerrick Ray Davis dreams, he delivers powerful speeches to the people. He also dreams he builds an Empire that spans across the North and South Americas. These are not simple day dreams, but ideas that map out Jerrick's destiny. Jerrick rises up out of the wreckage and devastation of the Michigan economy and turns his dreams into reality. Jerrick Davis and his political party, the National Workers' Party, take over the United States government and then the rest of the Americas. Jerrick Ray Davis becomes the most powerful man...
How did the greatest democracy on the earth collapse? Why did people lose faith in their democracy, their political leaders, and allowed one man to seize all the power?
It began during the final days of the democracy after the 2008 Financial Crisis had struck a deathblow to the U.S. economy. Government at levels in the United States created a massive, complicated legal system. Entire U.S. government had transformed into a giant lawnmower, mowing down every grass blade that grew too high. After a person had appeared on the government’s radar, the government sent its storm troopers, tax agents, regulators, inspectors, and attorneys. Government arrested many people for petty infractions of the law and seized their property.
Businesses did not survive under such a punitive legal system, and they fled to other countries, taking the jobs and wealth with them. Across this great land, factory buildings shut down, becoming dormant, gradually rusting away from exposure to the elements. Unemployed can’t find jobs, and mobs formed as people rioted for food and basic supplies.
In the Republic’s final days, some powerful members of government plotted to overthrow the U.S. federal government, such as Richard Woodland.
Richard was a tall, muscular man, built like a marine. He had blonde hair and the coldest, bluish eyes. He sat on a chilly green bench, overlooking the pond with a great view of Jefferson’s Memorial, within two blocks of the Whitehouse in Washington, D.C.
Winter was brutally cold in 2016. Richard placed his gloved hands over his bright rosy cheeks, keeping warm while he exhaled icy mists.
Richard was a government agent, well not an agent but a person who fixed problems for the U.S. President, Charles Gibson. Richard was an expert at hiding bodies permanently, ensuring the skeletons stayed buried inside the closet.
Richard watched a family of geese swim across the pond, scampering for food. Mother goose swam in the front with the young ones following in tow. He wanted to pull his nine-millimeter out and have a little target practice. However, he kept his gun in his shoulder holster underneath his jacket because gunshots in this neighborhood would attract attention.
Richard pulled out his touch screen cell phone, scanning for any messages. Then he played a video clip of Jerrick Ray Davis.
Jerrick Ray Davis was a revolutionary, who turned into a big pain in the ass. He formed a new political party, the National Workers’ Party and spoke about creating the American Empire. He claimed an empire would save the United States, and he attracted a large following as his speeches hypnotized half the nation.
Richard stretched his legs out, preventing them from going to sleep. As he stretched his legs, the tensed muscles popped several joints in his legs. Then he relaxed and listened to Jerrick’s speech.
Jerrick’s voice rang out from his cell phone.
Enough is enough.
Our government is ruining our economy.
Our founding fathers had given us one of the greatest gifts one can bestow upon their children.
They gave us a system with great laws with a great government.
Now look at the people in government today.
They are pigs!
They fatten themselves at the public trough.
What have they accomplished?
They keep increasing taxes, regulations, and laws.
They fatten themselves with high salaries and benefits as they feed off the hardworking and industrious.
Those fat pigs in government took over the economy, and nothing makes sense anymore, except the pigs are becoming fatter, literally while the hardworking have sick and are dying off like an extinct species.
Unfortunately, our government is broken, and Congress and the bureaucrats have become the people’s enemy.
We must purge ourselves of these charlatans, thieves, and misfits to fix our economy.
We must unite and fight this common enemy.
We must rid ourselves of these people and create a new government!
A stronger government!
A more intelligent government!”
Then the audience chanted his name in unison, Jerrick! Jerrick! Jerrick! Jerrick!
Richard abruptly switched the video off and returned the phone to his inside coat pocket. He rubbed his hands together, gently exhaling through them, keeping his hands warm.
