Inhaltsangabe: Gun Control and the Death of Common Sense
The year is 2018, seven years after the successful end of an American-led world war on terrorism, but the nation is now faced with an even more horrible prospect: a war against an enemy it cannot defeat--itself. In the face of the gathering storm clouds of war, Jeremiah Kincaid, 59, the Republican Speaker of the House, struggles to mediate a growing firestorm of public debate over gun control. On the left is Alexander Webster, 49, the Democratic President, who halfway through his final term, decides to make the elimination of guns from America his legacy. On the right is Edward Morrissey, 61, the Republican Governor of Idaho, who bitterly opposes the President's position.
Exacerbating the situation, militia seize a gun club built on Federal land in the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho, which the Park Service had closed. After losing patience with Morrissey's handling of the problem, Webster sends in Army Rangers, and in the ensuing battle many men die. The militia's leader, Thomas Porter, 34, escapes. He is a billionaire with a past shrouded in mystery. The massacre on the mountain sets in motion a sequence of events that inexorably leads to civil war. First, Idaho secedes from the Union, followed quickly by six other western states to form the Continental States of America with Morrissey as its President.
Eventually, President Webster is left with no choice but to declare war on the new Confederacy. The short but brutal civil war that ensues lasts for seven days and involves the most ferocious and devastating tank battles in history. By the time it ends, the blood of over one hundred thousand soldiers has been spilled on the savaged soil of the sorrowed nation.

Buchbeschreibung Author House, 2004. Soft cover. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Very Good. Trade paperback. (ISBN 1-4184-0431-4) Very good tight copy, unread, very good glossy wrappers. R.A.R. Clouston's sweeping epic, "Where Freedom Reigns," is a story of love and war: the love of a father for two sons, a woman for two brothers, and a nation for two freedoms, and the civil war that — but for the hand of God — would have destroyed them all. It begins with "A Great Thunder from the Mountains" which describes the traumatic events leading up to the war and concludes with "The Wrath of God" which captures the tragedy of the war during which the blood of over one hundred thousand soldiers is spilled upon the savaged soil of the sorrowed nation. What makes this American saga so powerful and compelling, is its unashamed spirituality as it draws heavily upon the Revelation of St. John the Divine from the Bible. Regardless of the reader's religious beliefs, all who read it will find themselves either reassured by their faith in God, or questioning their lack of it. Clouston's spellbinding narrative skillfully weaves together the colossal forces of good and evil, patriotism and treason, and archangels and battle tanks. It challenges the mind, touches the heart and liberates the soul. It is the perfect story for our time. Fiction. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 7cb5b39118f2f27061cb0408a00bc92a
