Silenced: Consent Of The Governed Book One by B.D. Lutz
A new administration sweeps into power, promising unity, promising a fair and just society. They lied.
As the newly elected administration’s incompetence threatens to derail the aspirations of a powerful shadow government. A series of progressively more deadly events are exploited to chip away at the freedom of the American people.
They understand that to achieve complete control, they must answer one question: How do you control free people?
The answer is simple, and brutally effective: you control the flow of information, making yours the only truth. You silence dissenters, critical thinkers, and opponents of your truth. You use fear to limit their movement and destroy their livelihoods, rendering them dependent on their government. Then you wait… wait for them to willingly trade their freedom for safety.
They made one mistake; they underestimated Jack Stinger. Jack simply wanted to run his family business and live the American Dream. He and his wife, Lisa, worked hard to build the life they had. Jack struggles with the reality unfolding around him. He holds tight to the promise of America's system of government even as that same government attempts to drown him in bureaucracy, break his will to fight, to silence him.
The question they forgot to ask: How far can you push a man before he fights back?
Silenced takes the reader on a hypothetical dive into the allure of power and the corruption it breeds. It explores the question: What happens when you eliminate the concept that government exists at the consent of the governed?

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. I now live in NEO (Northeast Ohio) with my wonderful wife (she told me to say that). We recently became grandparents (young grandparents, mind you). That little angel is the apple of our eyes.
In my early adult life, I spent time as a Repo-Man for a rent-to-own furniture company and bill collector. Then I decided that was a tough way to earn a living and spent twenty-seven years working my way through sales management in corporate America. I've always wanted to write books, and I realized that we, you and me, have about fifteen minutes on the face of this planet and I needed to do one of the things I had always wanted to do. And, well, this is it.
