An incumbent minority president, losing at the polls in his re-election bid due to the economy, gas prices and scandals in his administration, pulls an "October Surprise" that swings the election. The night he is elected, there is an assassination attempt on him, which is blamed on the Tea Party. The assassination attempt causes major riots in urban areas throughout the country which seriously impact the economy, the stock market, as well as food and gasoline supplies. The Justice Department identifies the would-be assassin as a Tea Party sympathizer and, with the collusion of the president and his cabinet, uses the gunman's Tea Party connections to construct a diabolical conspiracy to eradicate the Tea Party once and for all.
The president and his minions attempt to keep the lid on the conspiracy by any means necessary, including issuing unconstitutional executive orders. Jack-booted federal agents are ordered to raid private citizens' homes and the first shots on America's own people since the Civil War are fired, resulting in several unnecessary deaths.
After an ordinary citizen in Texas, founder of a local Tea Party, is terrorized and held without due process, the governor of Texas decides to act.
An exciting and fast-paced political thriller, Patriots of Treason presents a "what if?" scenario that will keep you on the edge of your seat! This is definitely a must-read book, regardless of your political bent.
If you're looking for it, or an aware reader you might see some connections to the current situations that connect this story to the present day, but it isn't like the book was written with that in mind.
This is the kind of book that when you pick it up, you better be ready to be sitting for quite some time until you finish it, because you'll not want to put it down.
David does a great job at craft a tale that compels you to keep reading. You get invested in the storyline and the characters that are there. I'm not a fact checker and I know nothing of military things, I just enjoy a good action-y, thriller-y, political book.
I just moved to Texas when I got this book, so reading this was kind of fun! It was an interesting link into a state I know little about- I must say I still don't know it as well as my native California... or even Alabama (I spent two years there)...
It's a good read, check it out.

The story of The Alamo, the spirit of all its Texan heroes, and the fight for Texas independence left an indelible impression on him that has endured a lifetime.

Independence, and has been a speaker at Tea Party events.
