"Americans are already upset with the intrusion and overreach of government in their lives, but the president's latest threat to use executive order to pass amnesty for illegal immigrants has reignited the furor for independence by Texans - who predict a Constitutional crisis," says author David Thomas Roberts. His latest book, A State of Treason
(Defiance Press), tells the compelling story of fiercely patriotic, trail-blazing Texans who want to make independence and self-determination a reality!
Arguments justifying Independence have been a part of this country's politics since its birth - with many seeing Independence as a Constitutional right. Destined to be another bestseller for Roberts, his latest gripping thriller exemplifies the belief that the right of self-government is as crucial to the spirit of Americans as their right to free speech, prompting the question: "Would the U.S. government allow a state like Texas the opportunity to vote on independence, even if it was a non-binding referendum, or would they consider it treason?"
In Roberts' riveting cautionary tale, while many states are upset with their current leader and his scandal-ridden administration, Texas sees their actions as a blatant disregard of the limits of the Constitution and the intent of the Founding Fathers. After the Governor of Texas, already at odds with the president, orders the rescue of a Tea Party organizer being held illegally by the government, a massive power struggle erupts between Texas officials and Washington - and the effect is felt around the world. Using this crisis as a way to stop Texas' bid for independence, the president declares martial law. Will Texans allow this to stop them?
David Thomas Roberts does a masterful job of grabbing readers' attention from the first page, and propels them into pulse-pounding action and excitement all the way to an explosive ending! Following on the heels of his bestselling Patriots of Treason, Roberts' latest gripping tale confirms him as a hot contender in the political thriller genre.
"[Story] is very well constructed and the high quality of writing makes it a page-turner from start to finish?Will the Federal Government have its way or will Texas once again become a Republic. There are a lot of characters in this novel, and you might just want to keep a scorecard of them; and even note which ones might even reflect real people.
"Again, this book could be pulled from today's headlines. It picks up where the previous book (Patriot's of Freedom) left off. Exciting from the first pages. You will not be able to put this book down. I found the direction of the book to be very believable. I also loved the ending. If you like action and relevant subject matter, you will love this book. Hope the author has a third book in the works!
"Every freedom loving American should read this book.
"Wow... Very well written, keeps you coming back for more page after page. Good enough character development, great job with realism and tracking down all the moving parts in this book. Highly recommended!
"I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the third book. David Roberts takes you on a very possible ride to Freedom. Excellent series for all Patriots, not just Texans.
"Just one "tongue-in-cheek" hell of a book!!!
