Author: Alfred Drum. Publisher: Atlantic Publishing Group, Inc. Author Bio: Alfred grew up on a small cattle ranch in Northern California where he learned the importance of hard work and self-motivation. He also grew up in a very religious, yet economically modest, home where he was taught not only integrity and moral cleanliness, but also how to be thrifty and conservative with money. As a youth and young adult, Alfred received many opportunities to be a leader and to invest his own money, mostly in the cattle business because that was what he knew growing up. But when he failed to make it financially in the cattle business, he had to let go of some of his old ways of thinking, be willing to try new things, and open his mind to other business ideas and opportunities. That's when he was introduced into the world of real estate investing, a world which he knew very little of at the time. About the time Alfred got out of the cattle business and was forced to get a regular job, the real estate crash of 2008 was taking place, and, suddenly, single family housing was very affordable, and foreclosures opened the door for anyone looking to invest money in real estate to get some fantastic deals. He was lucky enough to eventually jump at the opportunity himself, and through a lot of study and trial and error, he was able to build a very successful business in just 9 years. He started with very little but was able to leverage himself through intelligent loans and effective partnerships that helped him to build a successful real estate business in a short period of time. But it was his past experiences and the mindset he had to learn to develop overtime that prepared Alfred to have the ability to see an opportunity and make the most of it. At the age of 36, he currently owns over a dozen multifamily properties, which include apartments and trailer parks, and continues to flip 7 or 8 single-family homes per year. He hopes to continue building his real estate business for years to come, but also desires to be an inspiration to others looking to better their own lives by teaching them through his writings. He feels it is his obligation to pass on what he has learned to the rising generation or anyone looking to be successful in their own life or business pursuits.

By now most Americans realize that our Republic is in crisis, countered by Donald Trump and 74 million voters. The challenge is (1) comprehending the danger; (2) identifying what is necessary to reverse it; and (3) providing effective plans to accomplish that goal. Those answers are the theme of this book.
How will we unite? Our Republic is rooted in Christian values but Christians are declining in America; many are atheists or in-between. From theology, Dr. Mike explains that atheists and Christians are essentially compatible, everyone united by common values.
Dr. Mike refutes the obsession with racism and slavery, quoting the slaves themselves. He proves that Jefferson and the founders of the Republic were their heroes, not oppressors.
He then exposes the dysfunction and irrationality of communism and reveals how it has permeated America. Drawing from scripture, he contrasts communism with universal values that can restore our civilized way of life.
Most important, then he outlines plans to salvage civilization and our Republic. This is a call to action.
