Item description for The A Club: What is an American? by Ayceinr G. O'Wynn...
What is this place, this way of life, this "A Club" that so many risk so much to join and others look to exploit.from without and from within? Since the beginning, this place, we now call the US of A, has been built by people from all over the earth. Some as explorers, some as exploiters, some as settlers, and some as founding colonists.The USA has also been shaped by slaves, immigrants, convicts, and natives. America is a magnet that attracts the restless and creative from every foreign land. The A Club? What's The A Club? The "A" in A Club stands for "Americans." Therefore, "The A Club" is "The Americans Club." "The United States of Americans." Or as some pronounce it; Amrca. Specifically that group of American "Citizens" declared on the 2nd & 4th of July, 1776 starting as the "thirteen united States of America" at ~2.3 million people* and continuing unbroken to today @ ~289 million "citizens strong" and counting. ~4 million of these American Citizens are paying their dues to the A Club from their homes on foreign soil. There are another ~14 million foreigners living here, some legally and most illegally, some in our system to work and others to work the system. Some visitors are here waiting in line to contribute their part as full-fledged legal American citizens, some are here temporarily to soak up "America" and return to their countries to apply lessons learned and some are here to work the system, to sponge off our prosperity, exploit our open society, contribute the bare minimum (sounds like some native-born Americans we hear about), all while staying loyal to foreign soil. America is the Big Show that millions line up for miles just to get tickets to and for those entering from the south; we're the World Cup Soccer/Futbol Championship Game between Mexico and the USA. Will The A Club or the M Club emerge as victor? Or will both win for the common good? Of the world.

An Entertaining Take On All Things American! Mar 9, 2007
This is the best complete picture of America out there today. The book is short and sweet...156 pages...yet manages to cover politics, history, immigration, philosophy, civics, culture etc. all the essentials necessary to give the big picture of America...and it's entertaining along the way! The thesis statement of The A Club is that "America is a giant club--as are all the other countries of the world--and citizenship is just like being a member of a club." With this apt metaphor (the "club") author Ayceinr O'Wynn takes a complex system, the United States of America, and makes it understandable. If you care about America, where she's from, where she is today and where she's going you'll love this book!
