ABOUT THE BOOK: First published in 1988, the author's family sought republication after his death. The subject matter is still relevant to today's political climate.
A compelling, moving, life-or-death story about thee survival of American democracy and Christian morality. A Paper Pauper on the Whistle Perch is a heart-rending sensitive, moving story of fear and danger, pain and struggle, futility and immorality in American democracy, which, like all other democracies throughout history, is destroying itself. Franklin Jefferson Adams represents the rank and file American - a non-politician who wants all Americans to be able to pursue "the American dream" and to be able to vote in a system in which he is no longer forced to vote for "the lesser of two evils." Adams is the average American caught in a deteriorating government and society. In his fantasies, which are complete vignettes, he suffers the agonies of almost all social and religious problems in American today.
