Midwest Book Review “Highly Recommended”
Billionaires and Bagmen: What Happens When A Small Town Takes Them On, offers a surprising solution to the question many people are asking since the Conventions: How can we take our lives back from an over-reaching government, Wall Street power brokers, lobbyist-written laws, the billionaires who buy them off and candidates we don’t like?
His answer is for local governments to simply ignore Big Brother’s rules and write their own. All across America, town by town, regardless of who is president or who big money controls. It’s called Civil Disobedience.
History is full with examples of people refusing to abide by laws they consider unjust or immoral. In Billionaires and Bagmen, Bourhis explores the possibility of a whole town doing just that. This entertaining political thriller, described by the Midwest Book Review as “deftly crafted and compelling,” also a blueprint of how it could be done. Read More…

Author Ray Bourhis
Ray Bourhis is uniquely qualified to be a political pundit and an enemy of unbridled corporate and political corruption. A lawyer practicing out of San Francisco and Santa Barbara, California, Bourhis has been at the forefront of the battle against greed and excessive power for most of his life.
Bourhis’ Billionaires and Bagmen reflects a lifetime of distain for what he considers the hijacking of America by an increasingly pro-business Supreme Court that has consistently ruled against “the people” and in favor of multi-national corporations. He believes and hopes that what happens with Sean Cogan and his friends in Fairview may well turn fiction into fact. Read More…
Billionaires and Bagmen Reviews
A rousing political thriller! I haven’t been this entertained since “All the President’s Men.”
–Thomas Steinbeck, Author of The Silver Lotus
With the perspectives of a skilled lawyer and longtime activist, Ray Bourhis captures the disenchantment many of us feel over government surveillance and political corruption, and the desire to regain control over a system that is clearly out of control. Whether you identify with Occupy or the Tea Party, Billionaires and Bagmen is an engaging, must-read. –Peter B. Collins, veteran radio host. www.peterbcollins.com
If I were in charge of education in the United States, this excellent book would be required reading for every single college student. The book is possibly the most powerful and poignant way to explain the serious problems that are destroying our once fine country (and what to do about fixing them). This is one of the most relevant and powerful political thrillers I’ve read in ages. Highly recommended. –Gill J. Ingalls
