Purge on the Potomac

David Thomas Roberts

Defiance Press, 2018

David Thomas Roberts', "Purge on the Potomac," finds iconic Texas Ranger, Pops Younger, at the crossroads of his legendary career faced with defying his oath of office to defend the Constitution against all enemies-foreign and domestic. A bloated federal government that has overreached its authority and encroached on Texans' civil rights has ignited the passions and ire of an extreme element determined to alter the course of normal politics forever. Conflicted with his life-long dedication to the rule of law, Younger must choose between following the law or taking a stand against modern-day tyranny, leading to suspenseful cataclysmic events.

Roberts’ twisted tale is filled with motifs that seem almost like the new normal in the current American political life: rumors of rigged elections, Russian involvement, a power-hungry leadership, and the failure of moderates to act for a just cause - all for the sake of staying in office.

Purge on the Potomac by David Thomas Roberts, focusing on the grit and ethics of men like Younger and highlighting the dogged sense of independence that Texans, in general, seem to exude. A few glimpses of the characters’ private lives and tenderer feelings give emotional tone to this hard-edged and sometimes violent saga.

To call the vision David Thomas Roberts presents in this book “chilling” would be an understatement. This book will give you a good look at what would have been and possibly still could be our future. Lots of excitement, cloaks, and daggers along the way and even a few joyful whoops as our heroes deliver again! Whatever you may have been expecting, you will not see it coming when you read   “Purge on the Potomac”!   - Doc Greene, host, American Voice Radio
“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” we’re told.  Ted Cruz called the DC lobby the “Washington Cartel”. In the Texas legislature, we refer to it as the “Austin Cartel”. “Purge on the Potomac” is an engrossing and sobering read of what could come to be in the absence of a vigilant Texas. We must take back from those who wish to enrich themselves at the expense of our liberty. So goes Texas, so goes America.  - Honorable Steve Toth, former Texas State Representative
A government infested with power-hungry individuals who are willing to shred the Constitution for money and political gain. Texas now stands alone unbowed, unbroken as the U.S. government uses the power of the FBI and IRS to break her will. Weapons on both sides are cocked as both parties stand face to face and eye to eye. TEXAS will never blink!  - Durhl Caussey, The Focus Daily News
