Overview

Why do so many Americans think the country has lost its way?

The country has changed dramatically since its founders first conceived of it as a republic with democratic foundations. The effects of history (particularly during the middle of the Twentieth Century) have pushed America closer to a centrally-planned state than any of its founders might have imagined. Their idea of America was a place where people could come to lead lives of their own individual design. Instead, Americans have become slaves to consumerism, convenience and a government that (like most governments) is eager to tell them how to live.

There's still time to reclaim the original idea of America. The tools for restoring America's promise are all around. People just need to look at politics and public life differently. They need to forget traditional choices of Democrat vs. Republican...or liberal vs. conservative...and see that the new choice is statism vs. liberty. This book shows readers how to understand the new political paradigm. And get America back on the track to greatness.
