Well written, well researched book by an ex-Republican who clearly exposes the hypocrisy, corruption, and double standards of a party that has gone completely mad and radical. It is clear they do not concern themselves with the problems of ordinary Americans, but only with the mission of gaining control, power, and money for themselves and their twisted ideology, while destroying the USA and its Constitution.
And now, currently they have the audacity of stupidity to question why there is no resolution in creating jobs, and can't find a way to balance a budget and fix deficit spending that THEY created with TWO wasted wars, and policies of letting big business take jobs from the USA and put them overseas where profits are higher, and businesses can avoid paying taxes.
This book is very highlights what the problems are concerning each of the 3 branches of government. What is broke, how it got broke and suggestions on how the government can be restored, providing it's not already too late.
John Dean has written an excellent overview of what the modern GOP has done to America's system of government. It started before the infamous "Contract on (sic) America" and may even precede the Nixon administration of which John Dean was a part. His introduction "Process Manners" explains why the American voter should pay more attention to politics than simply concentrate on one or two wedge issues. The first three of the four chapters each deals with a separate branch of government and how Republicans have used them to aggrandize more and more power. In the Congress they completely cut the minority out of the legislative process. The Republicans in Congress have acquiesced in the Executive branch's development of a 'unitary executive' (a euphemism for dictator.) Collusion between the Republicans in the Senate and Republican presidents has led to a tilting of the Judicial branch toward a fundamentalism favoring the few over the many, the rich over the poor, and corporations over everyone else, The fourth chapter "Repairing Government" doesn't seem to offer much except one should not vote Republican, and I would include not voting Conservative Democrat. There are three appendices, the largest of which discredits the prime architect of Bush's arguments on the inherent powers of the President. I recommend this book, even if it only reinforces one's factual based understanding of the current Republican party.
