How to wage a peaceful revolution to restore rule of law, ethics, and morality to the nation
With a title that satirically mocks Hillary Clinton, this book details how our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government have become thoroughly corrupt and failed the citizenry. This work is a call to arms during these times of crises, when government corruption has hit a “cancerous state.” The overriding message is that Americans should turn off cable news, get up off of the couch, and join the second American Revolution to restore the greatness of our nation in these perilous times.
