Restore America – Continuum 1 – Protreptic Continuity – Prologue

The November 6, 2014 mid-term election presented the opportunity for American citizens to exercise their right to vote and send a firm message to federal, state and local officials demanding government reform and redefinition.

The 1776 rallying cry as characterized by the Boston Tea Party “Taxation without representation ” was the catalyst for revolution against an oppressive British Monarchy under the reign of King George III.
