The answers to each of these questions establishes your moral identity, defining how you view yourself and others. How our nationits governors, legislators, presidents, and judgesanswers these questions, and how it uses these fundamental principles in establishing our laws, lays the foundation of our national moral conscience. It is that moral conscience that has consistently driven this nation forward in achieving justice and equality. Today, though, that moral conscience is being corrupted by a sinister ideology. A principle that is utterly antithetical to the one that has compelled our leaders to the highest moral standards.
This book looks at that original principle and how it guided our leaders as they steered this nation safely through the rough waters of change. It looks, also, at how that great principle has been undermined, leaving us adrift in a turbulent sea of crisis. Mostly, though, it seeks to point us back to that great principle as the source of strength, courage, and honorcharacter traits sadly missing from many of todays leaders in American politics.
The Founders created a new cultural climate that gave wings to the human spirit. 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 made in the past 200 years than all of 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.
