Ever wonder what the Founding Fathers would think of America today?Edward P. Moser

In this humor book by a former writer for Jay Leno, a biotech firm brings Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and Abigail Adams back to life in contemporary Washington, D.C. These Founders  get into comic adventures with mad scientists, the TSA, befuddled congressmen, the Declaration of Independence, war games, a glad-handing president, crooked lobbyists, two characters named Fannie & Freddie, and a record-breaking storm.

The sometimes foundering, ever resolute Founders even take part in an epic sports race, and watch a horror movie about Ben Franklin, Werewolf Slayer. The idealistic Founders make their mission to restore thrift, common sense, ethics, self-reliance, and sound government to their troubled nation!
