By day, Robert Clouston is the president of Sargento Foods Inc., but he moonlights as the author of the novel Where Freedom Reigns. Its a modern day Civil War story that erupts in 2018 when the current President attempts to outlaw guns in the U.S. and several states secede from the Union.
Clouston says the controversy lies among the people who havent read the book. He says people reading about the experts who are anti-guns think its written by a gun nut, and people who are pro-guns think hes trying to get rid of guns.
But he says its neutral and points to a Major General in the U.S. Army in Baghdad who loved it and wanted more copies to give to his soldiers.
Despite being the big cheese in the cheese industry, Clouston says he had to self publish the book because it was too hot for the publishers to handle. Clouston says before it was a book, he wrote it as a screenplay in 1999, but Hollywood studios thought it was too controversial.
