Publisher's Summary

Written from a Christian constitutional worldview, American Meltdown, Book Two of The Economic Collapse Chronicles uses dystopian fiction to take an in-depth look at the economic and political trends that have taken America to the edge of bankruptcy. The book assesses the current course of the nation and projects it into the near future.

In Book Two, America has entered into a full scale financial meltdown. The members of the Bair family do the best they can to navigate a complete currency collapse and the social disruptions that come with it. Having relocated to a rural area in Kentucky, the Bairs fare much better than the unfortunate masses still trapped in the cities.

In an effort to cling to power, President Anthony Howe announces the confiscation of provisions and guns. Several states, led by liberty-loving Senator Paul Randall, stand up to assert their sovereignty.

Knowing the intentions of the Federal Government, Matt, Adam and Wesley Bair train with the local militia who have determined to draw a line in the sand and defend the last remnants of liberty. The political conflict escalates into military aggression and the gloves come off.

    "This book gives you a lot to think about!! "

    It makes a person think what they'd do in this very real and possible situation.
    One thing I notice is the author give the females in the book very passive rolls. Women are stronger than he writes and would work and fight along with men to defend our country, God, children and way of life.

    "Compelling story!"

    I am enjoying this series. The premise isn't as far-fetched as some would probably like to believe, too. When men and women care about style over substance, and vain glory over sacrificial service, are thrust into positions of power, they will stop at nothing in pursuit of their agenda. It could happen today. This author has a great awareness of current events and economic circumstances, and plays the potential realization of the consequences that may follow because of them.

    "Great depiction of the end of the dollar"

    This is a very real depiction of the collapse of our currency and what would follow if we do nothing to curtail the rampant borrowing and spending being done by our government. It is a wake up call to all of us not just the prepper or militia types.

    Story
    "No Constitution Cowards need apply"
    Would you listen to American Meltdown again? Why?

    Yes. Many Biblical and Founding Fathers quotes I'd like to hear again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of American Meltdown?

    Mark Goodwin doesn't play middle of the road and doesn't try to be politically correct. Many times he could have said things like there are some good Liberals but most are against the Constitution. No. He calls it like it is. Some will like that. Others need to read something watered down.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

    Adam


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really. It's a lot to digest. I walk daily and listened to it between calls. Its 4.5 hours long so you get yours money worth. I purchased book 1 and 2 from the beginning partly because Kevin Pearce was performer. Great voice. My favorite story teller.


    Any additional comments?

    Courageous. Biblical quotes and themes while not watering down how bad things would get in a economic collapse. Biblical quotes and words from the founders don't take over the story. They do help give it context.

    "Very Good - thought provoking!"

    Good followup to the first book. The story continues to be engaging and has plenty of little prepping nuggets scattered throughout. God bless.
