An account of what author Patrick M. Andendall delivers about the current political climate and those responsible for the downfall. Deliverance from Stupidparty provides an in-depth microscopic look inside the Republican Party, its leaders, supporters and the man who is supposedly leading our country Trump. Hearing his speeches and listening to his words you begin to wonder is he really understands what he’s saying but that’s just some of what this author brings to light in this book. He includes charts that explain his viewpoints and explains his reasoning for why the blue states are better than the red ones. He includes numbers and statistics to create strong support for his reasoning. He even talks about why the GOP wants to profitize schools and what has been done to bring down our economy and this was written even before the Government Shutdown.
One thing I will say is that the author is straightforward, does not mince his words or thoughts and appears to have written this book because of the poor state of our political systems and it gets frustrating at times to just hear the news.
Reading this book, I focused on the many links, sources and graphs that solidified his viewpoints and he discusses in detail how the past or history brought us to this point. But, how do we move forward? Including the topic of religion which I will let readers read for themselves and his references to the Republican Party as well.
The first half of the book focuses on the Republican party and the second titled the Smartparty geared towards the Democratic party.
The author includes information dealing with economics, a discussion of the Real Christianity and the teachings of Christ. An area that hits and creates a great amount of controversy and ire with the public are tax cuts for the rich. What about food stamps and help for the poor giving them some type of assistance or even lowering taxes for the one class that suffers the most besides the poor the middle class which might help our distraught economy to thrive. Explaining trickle up and trickle down I will leave to the reader. A topic close to the heart of many is the topic of global warming which needs to be seriously addressed and dealt with. His way of expressing himself sounds like he is upset, ranting and yet presenting it in a humorous and colorful manner apparently to make people realize he does not favor the Republican Party and what it has become in the present. He even describes our present “leadership or country or state run by a greedy oligarchy with a narcissistic personality disorder. The chapters and references to false news, fake this, fake that and Fake Americans is quite enlightening. Even creating the Smartparty and their platform which I will include some for readers. The Smartparty platform as created by the author:
Implement campaign finance reform
End Voter Suppression
Ensure that any Tax package must address:
Income tax discrepancy trends and clean vs. unclean energy
Tax asset-stripping companies making them responsible for their environmental impact
Change Gun Culture
Each part of the platform is explained in detail on page 270.
He then expands on pages 272- 273 why the platform was constructed this way, Key details behind the platform pledge and on the next pages graphs and charts and figures. He takes all his platform points and relates the research and the facts and figures behind his thinking.
Of course, this book cannot leave out Whitewater, Muller, Russia and obstruction of justice. He even includes election results, the differences between the red and blue states and the quality of living within each for you the reader to decide where if you decide you might want to move.
Americans need to take off the blinders and really take a long and hard look at what is happening within our government, the economy, read the cartoons, take a closer look at the links and graphs are quite enlightening. Of course, you can tell which side he is on and that the Republican Party is not on the top of this want to be a part of list.
A chapter titled Deliverance with sub topics like Deliver Us from the Evil Ones, more graphs, charts and links review and references to the magnificent seven or the last samurai and the final: let the poker game begin.
Chapter 12: Who has a dream of deliverance, followed by several appendix: Why the Stupid Party the 67 percent? Let the Pope Speak, Ted Cruz the Anti-Christ, and let’s not forget a special appendix devoted to Mike Pence. It is aimed at both sides and the misinformation we receive daily. He does refer to Trump as the monster. He also states that Trump supporters are in his word lost causes.
Can we be delivered from the Stupidparty ideology? Can America bounce back? The book probably states what many thinks but have either verbalized in private or kept silent about. From what I understand this is the third book in this Stupidpartyland series which summaries his thoughts from the first two. What brought us to this point? How can we fix or mend this? What issues do we need to proceed with in the future? Like many others like myself who questions everything, and dislikes lies, and liars Chapter 3 encompasses that topic and he explains why both parties are not the same. The final appendix explains what Cambridge analytical does and how influence our electoral or election system.
To quote the back cover: How did the US voluntarily arrive at the doorstep of its own demise? “This homemade man-made Handmaid’s Tale where falsehoods and transparently mean-spirited claptrap trump facts and common decency-subverting naïve yet positive innocence into a malignant supremacist and myopic nationalistic agenda that is now inflaming the planet’s already temperature of rising harm? The answers to this and more you will find when you read this well researched and uniquely present book. Let’s hope that the start and our deliverance will awaken Americans in 2020.
