America is deeply in trouble, with high unemployment and huge national debt often cited as the top two problems. But what is the root cause for these problems? To me, here are the two root causes: 1)The rise of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), led by China, as economic competitors to America. 2)The incompetence of America's political system, especially when compared with China's. Cause 1) was inevitable, but cause 2) was not. How, then, can we make America's political system more competitive? Introducing strict term-limits for the top political offices, with the American Presidency being one-term (e.g. six years), plus more Overall, I believe I have the most accurate diagnosis for America, as well as the best solution.

It's time to further expound on it by writing a book for one simple reason: the 2012 U.S. election is over, thus concluding my first phase of "saving America." This book is composed of 80 of my published articles, logically organized into a coherent whole in 12 parts as follows: 1)America: diagnosis and solution 2)What is an ideal government? 3)America: an overview 4)China: an overview 5)Democracy 6)China: in some depth 7)America: in great depth and breadth 8)America and China 9)America's foreign policy 10)Six democracy-communism similarities 11)Famous quotes and interpretations 12)My personal life Each part contains several chapters. Each chapter is an article previously published, with some significant] re-writing to fit it in context. Some articles have their original publication dates attached, with the events at the time as the background.
