Plucking the Eagle – The Book
This book will scare and inform you. If you think the current economy is a short term issue, you are misguided. The author explains this trend toward socialism has been a gradual accumulation of small unnoticed steps over the past hundred years that have now come to fruition to foster socialism in the United States.
In Plucking the Eagle, C. Francis James highlights systematic decisions made by the United States government that, according to James, have brought the United States to the brink of socialism.
According to James, the USA’s golden age ended in 1913. Before this date, the US enjoyed the highest standard of living without taxes, debt and a federal reserve. Today, with numerous forms of taxes, a Federal Reserve and over $13 Trillion in debt, the US is fostering government dependency. So, what happened? James explains.
The author blames this shift on a group of people he calls “Globalists” who have steered the US towards socialism over the last century. Building on this thesis throughout the book, the author looks at four sectors that have had the most impact financially on the US and the world: the Federal Reserve, Trade, Taxes, and Health Care. According to James, Globalists make use of – and sometimes initiate – “chaotic” events such as wars and stock market crashes that impact these sectors to introduce socialistic solutions.
Plucking the Eagle is ideal for anyone who believes our country is headed in the wrong direction and needs to return to Reagan-era conservative values.
