For the McKinnon family in 2019, life is a bleak shadow of America’s past glory—an unkept promise filled with widespread want and unmet needs.
2019: Dystopia USA is the story of how we travelled from here... to there.
And what we can do today to prevent it.

2019: Dystopia USA is the story of America's all-too-possible future, a fact-based projection ripped from today's headlines. It is a chronicle... a 'history' of national economic decline and personal hardship vividly illustrated through a day-in-the-life of an American family.
As such, it is both a cautionary tale and a compelling fictional narrative... one that should be read by every American, regardless of political or ideological orientation.

In 2019, life is indeed perilous for Jason and Jennifer McKinnon. As middle-class professionals in the once-tidy Chicago suburb of Willowhaven, Illinois, they face the daily uncertainities of a long-lingering economic malaise– compounded by their concerns for Bradley and Kate, their teenaged children.
It is a long way from the life they lived, and expected for their children, in the times now referred to as "Back In The Day": a time of plentiful employment, full larders and a home of their own...
But that was then; this is... 2019.
