An American Renaissance Begins

The secret guild, Ops Populi, has a grand vision for the future of the USA.

/EIN News/ Fredericksburg, VA – June 19, 2009 — A decade in the making, the plan for reforming the government of the United States is ready, but the members of Ops Populi know they may have only one chance to put it into action. Its leader, billionaire patriot and philanthropist, Martin Lochridge, is convinced the country is headed for an epic collapse and can only be saved if American people take control of the government, correct its systemic flaws and restore the delicate balance of powers envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

Like the Founders, the members of Ops Populi United to Save America are prepared to risk it all for the country they love. But instead of facing a king’s army, they must be prepared to confront the determined resistance of their fellow citizens – the power forces of those with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo.

“Inception” is the fast-moving debut of the “Ops Populi” series – the greatest American story since the Revolution itself. Almost 222 years after the Framers began the “Great Experiment,” Lochridge and Ops Populi want to ensure it survives and prospers, with the ideals of the Revolutionary heroes finally realized by those to whom they gave supreme power – the sovereign people of the United States. To accomplish this, though, they will have to break the stranglehold the elite has on their government – cut the chains that have kept their constitution out of reach for more than two centuries. Will Lochridge’s billions and the patriot fervor of the movement be enough to overcome the formidable opposition?

Today, it is more important than ever for Americans to be aware that above all else, the Founding Fathers believed the people should retain ultimate control over their national government. The federal republic they created during that hot Philadelphia summer was designed principally to promote the general welfare and to ensure liberty and justice for all. Yet many Americans doubt whether the current system fulfills the Founders’ aims, instead serving the interests of a privileged few at the expense of the many. With the future of our country now hanging in the balance, the choice is clear: its citizens either assert their supremacy and exercise their constitutionally granted sovereignty, taking control of their own destiny, or close their eyes and hope for a good outcome.

Though “Inception” is a work of fiction, its premise is certainly a plausible one. It is both timely and entertaining, infused with suspense and character-rich dialogue, and perhaps most importantly, a source of inspiration for Americans who want to do something more than go to the polls.
