The United States is in a crisis! Its people have awakened from their American Dream and found their government controlled by a plutocracy consisting of corporations and a wealthy elite.
Voting is suppressed, campaign cash rules, and voters are manipulated and misled by the corporate media. At the heart of the crisis is the startling revelation that the authors of the Constitution failed to include a fundamental right to vote.
Transforming America: A Voters' Bill of Rights is a handbook for a national nonpartisan movement by the People of the United States to transform their government into one that nurtures and cares for the society that elects it, instead of the wealthy elite and their corporations who bribe and control the People's representatives.
The United States Voters' Rights Amendment (USVRA) ensures the right to cast effective ballots and dramatically transforms the United States government into a true representative democracy.
The USVRA will reorient the government to the People and their society, and it will provide the means to force the government to work for the benefit of those who elect it.
Transforming America provides a brief background of the Enlightenment-which motivated those who founded the nation-their revolution, and the growth of freedom. The book also traces the destruction of that freedom, the growth of corporate citizenship, and the current American crisis in which the nation is ruled by political stooges hired and paid for by the wealthy elite and their corporations.
Reminiscent of the Federalist Papers, each section of The United States Voters' Rights Amendment is analyzed to provide a better understanding of its contents.
The book concludes with the belief that the USVRA will succeed only through a mass, nonpartisan, populist movement by the People of the United States-led by the Nation's youth.

About the Author
For more than 45 years, William John Cox has written extensively on law, politics, philosophy, and the human condition. During that time, he vigorously pursued a career in law enforcement, public policy, and the law.
As a police officer, he was an early leader in the "New Breed" movement to professionalize law enforcement. Cox wrote the Policy Manual of the Los Angeles Police Department and the introductory chapters of the Police Task Force Report of the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals, which continues to define the role of the police in America.
As an attorney, Cox worked for the U.S. Department of Justice to implement national standards and goals, prosecuted cases for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, and operated a public interest law practice primarily dedicated to the defense of young people.
Professionally, Cox volunteered pro bono services in several landmark legal cases. In 1979, he filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of all citizens directly in the U.S. Supreme Court alleging that the government no longer represented the voters who elected it. As a remedy, Cox urged the Court to require national policy referendums to be held in conjunction with presidential elections.
In 1981, representing a Jewish survivor of Auschwitz, Cox investigated and successfully sued a group of radical right-wing organizations which denied the Holocaust. The case was the subject of the Turner Network Television motion picture, Never Forget.
Cox later represented a secret client and arranged the publication of almost 1,800 photographs of ancient manuscripts that had been kept from the public for more than 40 years. A Facsimile Edition of the Dead Sea Scrolls was published in November 1991.
Cox concluded his legal career as a Supervising Trial Counsel for the State Bar of California. There, he led a team of attorneys and investigators which prosecuted attorneys accused of serious misconduct and criminal gangs engaged in the illegal practice of law. He retired in 2007.
Continuing to concentrate on political and social issues since his retirement, Cox has lectured, taught classes at the university level, and produced a series of articles and books. His primary initiative is the United States Voters' Rights Amendment (www.usvra.us & www.y4vra.org).
