Americans, politicians included, must take our founding principles seriously again. Unfortunately, our political leaders in Washington, and the elites in the media and in our universities, have concluded that America's principles do not apply to life in the 21st Century. But the real truth is that the timeless principles of our founding, even today, are popular among Americans, and, more importantly, are our best guide to solving today's problems. Dr. Matthew Spalding's book, "We Still Hold These Truths" is an informative book laying out the core principles of liberty, detailing the Progressive liberals' assault on those principles and explaining why we must vigilantly defend and reapply these principles if we are to save our country. He explains what's at stake and how a return to our eternal and guiding principles that is a necessary step in reversing the so-called "progress" that is making America look more and more like a socialist state.

Absorbing and thought provoking. A must read along with Mark Levin's Liberty and Tyranny, A Conservative Manifesto.

A well written book describing why our Declaration of Independence and Constitution were written the way they were. This book should be required reading for all who wish to learn about American history. I keep this one on the shelf alongside Payne's Common Sense, The Federalist Papers, and Levin's Liberty and Tyranny.
