If I Ran: I Would Be Elected President in 2020 by Jim DesRocher explores a retiree’s dream of changing America and in this book, he explains why he’d win the 2020 Presidential elections if he ran. As one opens the book and starts reading, one is struck by the depth of thought, by the clarity of expression, and the practicality of the project this author proposes to the American people. What would make his campaign so compelling and irresistible and ensure that the American people buy into his idea? It is very simple: He is solution-oriented and comes across as someone spurred on by his patriotism, determined to fix the malfunctioning of American democracy, the very idea that gives power back to the people. It is an idea that appeals to the masses and any candidate that will contest his idea will be acting against democracy.

If I Ran: I Would Be Elected President in 2020 by Jim DesRocheris packed with political analysis, compelling commentaries, and a powerful critique of contemporary American politics. It is a “could-be” true story about “solving a critical problem regarding the intentional, systematic dismantling of our democracy.” It explains why an old retiree is now contemplating the crazy idea of running for president in 2020. What can an unknown, old, non-politician, patriotic American citizen offer that other presidential candidates can’t? The book is just irresistible with strong ideas that are written with clarity. This book spells out very clearly that what America needs most is a critical structural and procedural change to our outdated and abused federal and state legislative bodies. Jim DesRocher’s book is classic. Intelligently delivered and written in prose that is accessible, it is one of the best things I have read on providing solutions to American political problems. As insightful as it is practical.
