About the Book
“Give me liberty or give me death!” cried Patrick Henry as he urged his fellow Virginians to send troops to the Revolutionary War for America’s independence.

Their sacrifices, even of life, enabled our freedom. Ultimately, the supreme gift of the Constitution of the U.S. (1787) was given us—but with a warning. When Benjamin Franklin was asked what manner of government we were to have his response was telling:
“A republic, if you can keep it.”

A republic is not a democracy. A republic means we have no king, but rather we live by the rule of law. (And the supreme law of the land is the U.S. Constitution which severely limits governmental powers and provides that most governance is to come from the people at the state level.)

We see that our own politicians have severely altered that delicate balance. Congressman Ron Paul understood what the Founders sought: “They feared democracy as much as monarchy and demanded a weak executive, a restrained court, and a handicapped legislature.”

We have gone far astray from that image of government. We have also come to be embarrassed by our prosperity and desirability—we feel guilty that we are the envy of the world and in the process of apologizing for what we earned, we are allowing it be destroyed from within and without by a bloated, controlling government and porous borders.

We need to reinstill pride in the real America. We saw such pride excellently exemplified by a Canadian broadcaster, Gordon Sinclair, in 1973 when he aired a speech “The Americans” which expressed his gratitude for our country and the ingratitude of a demanding world. Sinclair stated: “it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least-appreciated people in all the earth.” He was right then, he’s even more right now.

As the great President Reagan noted: “As government expands, liberty contracts.” His leadership by those principles resulted in great breakthroughs for America and the world—from a greatly improved economy to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

We need to return to the moral principles of the founding of our republic and respect for our Constitution. How to deal with many major issues affecting our freedom—health care, immigration, taxation, energy, education, national defense, and world development--are discussed in hopes that we can elevate the discussion of these vital issues and treat them with the respect Americans deserve.

America is the “shining city on the hill” and it’s time we took pride in that and helped other freedom-lovers to create their own shining cities of liberty.
