The author considers himself a radical. Radicals think outside the box and not limited by the Status Quo box. My career was in medical education. My time was spent in doing medical research, administration, and teaching, in that order. Thus much of my career involved the use of the Scientific Method. The methods and procedures of the Scientific Method have been used since the seventeen century to characterize natural science. The Method involves observation, measurements and experimentation. One generally forms a hypothesis from known data and designs experiments to test the theory. The process leads to the discovery of new knowledge. Price pointed out in his book titled: Little Science; Big Science, published in nineteen sixty most of the scientists, who have ever lived, are alive today. This is because of the rapid growth of population. The study of logic, decision-making, and problem solving have occupied much of my career time. I have always believed that the success in decision-making and problem solving by any institution was directly related to their organization. The organization chart and the ability to use the chain of command has a major effect on their ability to make creditable decisions and to solve problems. Observations have shown the nearer the decision is made to the people involved the less the adverse effects on the companies operations. It does not take a genius to know that when governments are deduced in number and size the cost of government is reduced. When the cost of government is reduced there are funds for purchase of items needed or used by society. When such Items are purchased there is an improvement in the nation’s economy. When there is an improvement in the nation’s economy employment is increased and the salaries are higher. When there is an increase in the number of people who are employed and the salaries increase the tax base is increased and the government can collected additional tax dollars. Thus, reducing the number and size of governments improves efficiency and provides effective results for society.

Sarah Rose, a disillusioned American activist, has retreated from Washington politics to her hometown in Minnesota to work for a friend at the Heavenly Hair Salon. Sarah has essentially given up on God, but one day is provoked by a conversation between customers at the salon about the state of the world and she begins to wonder what God would do as president of the free world. Sarah exclaims, "Imagine it...people would think twice before they act. Laws would be made with love. The water would be clean again. The fighting and wars would cease. God would never allow these atrocities!"
Out of nowhere, a mysterious, dazzling woman drops into Sarah's life and recruits her to help in a run for the Oval Office. Torn by her desire for a better world and her anger with U.S. politics, Sarah tries desperately to resist the woman's magnetism and call to help her country in the name of love.
God for President offers a poignant reminder that listening to each other may get us farther along than shouting, that no one person or party may have the corner on "right" and "the American way."

The Overstory, winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
