Overview

The Founding Fathers of the United States of America created the first free people to survive as a nation in modern times. They wrote a new kind of Constitution which is now the oldest in existence. They built a new kind of commonwealth designed as a model for the whole human race. They believed it was thoroughly possible to create a new kind of civilization, giving freedom, equality, and justice to all.

The Founders created a new cultural climate that gave wings to the human spirit. They encouraged exploration to reveal the scientific secrets of the universe. They built a free-enterprise culture to encourage industry and prosperity. They gave humanity the needed ingredients for a gigantic 5,000-year leap, in which more progress has been in the past 200 years than in all of the prior recorded human history. All of this came about because of 28 basic principles the Founders discovered, upon which all free nations must be built in order to succeed.

This book is a gateway into the minds of what Founding Fathers really wanted for this first ever free nation. After reading the founders own words you will see that we are going completely in the wrong direction.

My dad made me a deal, where each book I choose to read is equalled by a book he chose for me. This is the third book or something. Now, my family won't let me read my copy of The Crown- or get it out of the package, nonetheless- until I redid all of my homework and finish this book. I am on page 124 out of 310. I only remember the amount of pages because 3:10 is when I get out of school for the day.
