If you feel that the United States government no longer serves you, but instead serves the interests of a small number of financial institutions and corporations that are “too big to fail”, then this book was written for you 

Taking back America – An Immediate Solution to America’s Economic, Political and Environmental Crises lays out a practical plan to put control of the economy and political system back in the hands of the American people.

The fact is that we are the economy and we are the government. We fought the British Empire to make it so.

We now face a new kind of empire, one composed of an elite class of CEOs and government officials who work for each other at our expense. Like the British Monarchy before them, they send our raw materials overseas for manufacture there and skew the tax laws and regulations in their favor.

We can stop this burgeoning plutocracy and reestablish democracy right now. The pathway is simple – make us the main source of energy, food and water for our communities and ourselves. Taking Back America outlines practical steps to accomplish this using current technology within ten years. 

This website is the beginning of the communication strategy that supports the plan. I intend to add a blog, interviews, videos and art to enhance understanding of the principles involved and to promote efforts across the country to reverse the decline in our economy, political system and natural environment.


This is a call to action to enable us, the American people, to supply our own energy, revive our economy and re-institute democracy in America’s failing political system. These three problems are inextricably interconnected and cannot be solved separately. “Taking Back America” outlines the steps needed to enable us to do this right now by establishing a decentralized economy in which we create our own jobs and political influence. The book shows how this will be accomplished by taking control of the real source of wealth and power: energy, water and food. Think of it this way: Two people are stranded on a deserted island. One has millions in cash and the other has wood, water, and food. Who has the real power in this situation? We are diverted from this simple fact by a shell game of obfuscation and we have no time for it. There’s no time to argue about whether there’s too much or too little government or whose ideology is the one that will save us. There’s no time to wait for the right legislation to create a fair and even playing field so that all of us can participate in America’s unparalleled abundance. Shall we wait while our own children go hungry? There is really no excuse for this here in the richest most powerful nation in human history. Shall we wait while our elderly parents and grandparents struggle to decide whether to buy either food or medicine because they can’t afford both? This is currently how we reward a life of productive work – work that built this nation and made an exquisitely small number of us very wealthy. The longer we wait the more powerful become the financial and industrial giants who own our government and are “too big to fail”. We must act now. “Taking Back America” is a blueprint for what we can do right now to create a healthy, diverse and decentralized economy of, by and for the American people.
