    America's middle class, the driver of so much of our economic success and political stability, is rapidly disappearing, forcing us to confront the fear that we are slipping as a nation - that our children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living than we did. It's the dark flipside of the American Dream - an American Nightmare of our own making.

    Overall

    The book is definitely saddening. Even though I'm not American, just living here for the time being, I'm really sad to see how the rulers of this land (aka "representatives") are being bought to represent the "special interests" and don't give a damn about the people. That is until the election day.
    And here is the hope (according to the author): do not let the money win the election, do not vote for these, who spend the most campaigning!
    So, because the system is beyond the point of being able to fix itself from within, it must be fixed by the people. And the people will organize to do something only after someone, as the author says about Dr King, "turns up the heat across the country".
    I would really love to see the US to once again be by the people and for the people! Good luck America, before it is too late!
