Banksters, politicians, and sinister corporations aren't afraid of laws or regulators or voters. The only thing they fear is an uprising of the people.
The Man who now calls himself Thomas Paine lived his entire life by the rules. He went to college, served bravely in combat, raised a family, and paid his taxes. Then his employer went bankrupt, taking his pension and his wife's medical insurance with it. After her death he's decided that America needs a Second Bill of Rights, one that he is determined to bring about through an "American Insurgency."
How many among the desperate and disaffected who see the American Dream turning into the American Nightmare will join him? Can targeted vigilante violence really inspire true political reform and save democracy, or will it just provoke massive government repression, and perhaps even widespread martial law? Is it possible that the insurgency will spawn a successful non-violent third party, or will government seek to squash that as well?
And what about FBI Special Agent Darren Medlin? How far will he go to stop Paine before he draws his own line in the sand? What role will the beautiful young talk show host Crystal Dickerson play? What important decisions will she face, and how will her relationship with Medlin evolve?

About the Author
Raised in a politically active family, Jess Money majored in Political Science with a minor in Economics. He sold his first magazine article at the age of 16 and has since written everything from ad copy and political mailers to a screenplay for DreamWorks, which earned him membership in the Writers Guild of America. Along the way he had a career in professional motorsports, worked with the U.S. Women's Olympic Volleyball program, managed two of the entertainment industry's most acclaimed screenwriting programs, and worked as a bar bouncer when that's what it took to keep the wolf from the door.
No longer the handsome devil he once was, he decided against posting a picture, even though using an old one might boost sales.
