Overview

This is a hard-hitting response to false statements about our nations values and ideals by rigid radical right-wing extremists. It unmasks their deceptions by using the actual words of the founding fathers—both brief quotations and longer passages. It pays tribute to the America you always knew was hidden behind smokescreens of rigid partisan ideological rhetoric and tells how to get it back. The spirits of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, Samuel Adams and others walk through these pages, telling you what they themselves said and meant. Throughout, the author asks you to think for yourself rather than accept his views or those of any party or partisan. This engaging work bares the origins of the widening gap between rich and poor, tells how religious imperialists are imposing their views on everyone, and lets the founding fathers speak directly to all that. It moves through the years to let you hear the thoughts and sentiments of notable Americans of the 19th and 20th Centuries. It examines the Warfare State’s never-ending aggression and beggaring of our nation’s treasury, and the twisted view of liberty that places freedom for corporations above freedom for people. It reviews women’s and African-American’s past and present struggles for freedom. Remarks by historic and contemporary humorists lend a lighter touch. The book’s three parts are: Democracy in Crisis; Dimensions of Our Concerns; and Heal Yourself, Heal the Nation, Heal The World. Each chapter is arranged around a topic such as liberty, justice, equality, and other foundation-stones of democracy that are under siege today. Each starts with an orienting paragraph, moves into the quotations that are its central feature, then provides the author’s comments and solutions. It challenges you to help rescue the America that most of us know and loved from the quicksands of right-wing ideology that threaten it today.

    Surprised myself

    Excellent book with a childhood slant. Many facts that I knew were in this book but most people are not taught therm in school. I was really surprised as I am not a Rush fan at all but I must give him credit for this book.

    Finally, A Book That Speaks the Truth!

    This book uncovers so much of the mischief our govenment is up to, and the outrageous lies and deliberate mis-interpretations of, and attempts to dismantle, our constitution, that it should be required reading for every concerned American, including those still in school from high school forward!
