Book Description:



How did the US voluntarily arrive at the doorstep of its own demise? is homemade manmade Handmaid's Tale, where falsehoods and transparently mean-spirited claptrap trump facts and common decency--subverting naïve yet positive innocence into a malignant supremacist and myopic nationalistic agenda that is now in aming the planet's already rising temperature of self-harm? All this to cloak the true aspirations of the identi ed malevolent Oligarchs, who no longer lie quietly waiting.



The first book in this trilogy (Math v. Myth) exposed the blatant myths that now overshadow reality. The second book (Who is Jeb!!!) uncovered the horrible histories of the Bush dynasty--revealing how America, beginning with the JFK assassination, began its descent from being a force for good, to now having zero moral authority. Allies hold us in contempt; enemies nurture us.



We must understand the problem in order to visualize and actualize the solution. Since I fear the solution is unlikely to be enacted organically, we must prepare to seek a ballot-box-inspired intervention from a higher power--we must seek deliverance from our own collective folly, not from the heavens but from our own homegrown saviors, whom we created in the image of own inescapable delusions.

Meet the Author:

Patrick Andendall has always had an interest in politics and, being multicultural, he views issues from a more international perspective. In 2004, five days before the election, he flew to Cleveland and pitched in to help with the political process. What he discovered was the dissolution of the American Dream, which he writes about in his book, Stupidparty.



Educated at English boarding schools from the age of seven, Andendall went on to graduate from Lancing College. He started by sometimes working three jobs at once, trainee Underwriter/claim broker at Lloyd’s of London, his own one-man cleaning Company (cleaning the very offices of a Reinsurance Company he would transact business at) plus doing seasonal work on various farms.



Having made some windfall profits by borrowing money in order to be a “Stag” to take advantage of opportunities created by Margaret Thatcher’s denationalization policies of the mid 1980s, Andendall evolved into an entrepreneur with a core specialty in Reinsurance in London and New York where he looks for patterns in numbers. Self-employed in a field not normally conducive to self-employment, he is able to remain in control, juggle different jobs, travel and pursue his various interests.



Ending up in New York via romance in the African bush, Andendall now lives on Long Island with his wife, two children, and two dogs.

Interview with Patrick M. Andendall

What inspired you to write this book?
I realized that my first book, Stupidparty Math v. Myth: Unmasking the Destructive Forces Eroding American Democracy, simply explained how Stupidparty (the now-misguided Republican party) evolved from 2000 to 2016. It had skirted the prehistory leading up to 2000. This is the third book in my StupidpartyLand series, and I want to attack three more topics: 1) tidy up, update, and rewrite any strategic errors I made in the past; 2) write about the future, to complete the narrative arc of this long-standing cultural descent from JFK’s assassination in 1963 to the post-Trump era, around 2025, by which time all the trends I’ve been discussing will merge to create the perfect storm; 3) provide, by looking to the future, simple solutions to meet tomorrow’s needs that do not depend on people suddenly changing their DNA and all at once becoming self-aware.
Why do you like to write about politics?
I have always been interested in politics, so in 2004 I volunteered to help with the John Kerry campaign, an experience that lead to the creation of my StupidpartyLand series. When Kerry lost the election, I learned that face-to-face conversations are the most effective way to motivate voters. I also realized how the conservative media and other leading figures command a huge audience, an audience that consistently votes. I stopped working in the political field and later turned to political writing because I see it as my responsibility to combat the leaders of this audience and hold them accountable for the information they disseminate. Politics is all around us, and as such, the success of political policies and initiatives has a profound impact on our lives and wellbeing. Unfortunately, not everyone recognizes the importance of this.
Do you have another profession besides writing?
I have another job looking for patterns in numbers in the reinsurance industry.
What do you like to do for fun?
I am an outdoorsman—I greatly enjoy skiing. I also spend a lot of time with my family, which includes my two dogs. They help keep me relaxed and sane despite not being able to sleep regularly.
What kind of advice would you give other writers?
Get lots of reviews! Also, be patient. You might not sell the book upon exposing it to people for the first time but after a while, people may be persuaded. Additionally, hire a great copy editor, one who asks the right questions, and edits without changing your voice.
When and where do you like to write?
Writing is an exercise that helps me with my insomnia so I typically write at night. I don’t need to go anywhere extravagant. During the day, I like working in a small and quiet coffee shop, with lots of seating options, a good view, and is a cool 68 degrees.
