The Last President: A Speculative Short Story by Martin Roy Hill is a futuristic story where the United States had gone bankrupt and corporations had taken over running the government. They changed all the textbooks about the history of the United States so that they only show the history back to when the corporations took over the government. In the story, Sgt. Frank Wengler was sent to evict an older gentleman from corporate owned housing that was refusing to budge. Sgt. Wengler goes in the house and talks to the gentleman who tells Sgt. Wengler about the real history and the last president. The gentleman his willing to go after he tells Sgt. Wengler his story.
Some people might classify this story as science fiction but there is no technology or science used in this story. When the gentleman is telling the story you can see similarities to whats presently going on in the United States. I like this story. Another good story by Martin Roy Hill.
