Excerpts

The thirty-nine individuals shown above at the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 had risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor in order to create a great nation. They then entrusted the preservation and protection of that nation to “We the People.” Since we are charged with such a huge responsibility, it only stands to reason that we should be required from time to time to step back and consider how we are doing in carrying out our responsibilities. The purpose of this book is to force each of us to ask ourselves whether we are living up to the responsibilities that were given to us by our founders. The United States of America is the oldest surviving constitutional republic made up of a federation of states to ever have been formed. When you reflect upon the fact that the United States comprises just 5 percent of the population and geographic land area of the entire world yet it has created more new wealth than all the rest of the world combined, one is forced to admit that our founding fathers were on to something when they created this nation! “Are we being true to those people who sacrificed all to give birth to this great democratic experiment?” It is essential that “We the People” of the United States ask ourselves from time to time, “are we being true to those people who sacrificed all to give birth to this great democratic experiment?” In the pages of this book, you will be shocked to learn that not only have we failed to preserve and protect the nation that has been entrusted to us, but that “We the People” have actually allowed it to be substantially changed from the intent of our founding fathers. We have allowed our nation, and therefore the principles of our founders, to be abused and corrupted; and this abuse and corruption has, most recently, been accelerating out of control. “America’s real challenge of today is not financial. America’s real current challenge is that its very survival is at risk.” The past few years, particularly since late 2008, have been especially difficult ones for America. America is on hard times, but not for the reason that might first come to mind. Yes, our nation has been experiencing some challenges in the stock, bond, and real estate markets due to the fact that we are currently digesting some past financial excesses. But we have gone through these experiences many times in our history. What most people don’t understand is that America’s real challenge of today is not financial. America’s real current challenge is that its very survival is at risk. America is changing and changing very quickly. No one should necessarily be an alarmist, yet we should all be realists.” Please understand and be aware that America is changing and changing very quickly. No one should necessarily be an alarmist, yet we should all be realists. We need to examine very closely what is currently transpiring in our government. “We the People” have a solemn duty under our Constitution to watch over those to whom we entrust our nation. This book is about America. This book is about our responsibilities as citizens to preserve, protect, and defend America from enemies both foreign and domestic. This book is written with a few simple goals in mind. Those goals are to inspire, educate, and motivate the reader to thought and to action. America remains the same nation today as at her founding: the last best hope for man on earth. We dare not take this for granted, yet I fear that far too many of us have done just that. Read this book. Consider where you believe America stands today relative to when she was founded. Consider where America is headed. Consider carefully whether you should become more involved. It is important to constantly bear in mind what one of our nation’s founders and her second president, John Adams, told us at the time of our nation’s founding: “A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
