PRLog - June 8, 2014 - MECHANICSBURG, Pa. -- Sunbury Press has released the bestseller list for May, 2014. Terry Ray's novel "Revolt!" led the way.
Jihad arrives on American shores. The President lacks the courage to effectively confront the terrorists and would rather negotiate and capitulate than fight. The court system allows terrorists, represented by the ACLU, to use our own constitutional rights to tighten the noose around America’s neck.
It becomes clear that a terrorist victory is almost certain unless Americans are freed of a federal government that refuses to protect them and a court system that aids and abets the enemy.
When the U.S. military is unsuccessful in convincing the president to change course and engage the enemy in a state of war, the patient American people face the most fundamental question every country must answer at some moment its history – What are we willing to do to save our beloved homeland?
After much heart-wrenching discussion and debate, Americans finally decide. They must . . . Revolt!
