This is not because of political calculation, as the President suggested the other day. “Before I was even inaugurated congressional leaders of the other party got together and made a calculation that if I failed, they’d win.”

You don’t have to be a constitutional lawyer to sense there’s a problem in America when the federal government defines to the last detail what a health insurance policy must look like and then forces every citizen to buy one.

Blackwell and Klukowski show that the departure point defining American exceptionalism is a nation rooted in God-given first truths and our constitution that defines a federal government, with limited and enumerated powers, that preserves and secures those truths.

Our president sees things differently. Rather than a nation of men who live by laws, he sees us as a nation of men who enact laws to implement particular agendas of what they deem to be fair and just.

Under this leadership, we’ve started up the path of becoming a social welfare state rather than the free nation under God that our founders envisioned.

As result, we’re now seeing unprecedented government expansion and intrusion into our private lives. And the bills that are piling up to pay for this new socialism are strangling us blue.

How it’s all playing out in health care, education, our courts, our media, how we do the census, and how we vote, is laid out clearly and chillingly in this powerful book.

Blackwell and Klukowski have given us a roadmap back to freedom, morality, and prosperity.

This is an important read during this summer of American discontent.
