Important Books About Our American Experience
So many want to change the conversation, but the problem is, too many activists don’t have a firm grasp on history. If you believe socialism is great, you haven’t read enough. If you think local police and fire departments are examples of socialism, you haven’t thought enough.
To get started on your road to enlightenment, download your free copy of the President’s Advisory 1776 Commission Report that Trump commissioned. It’s excellent.
Read the below list to inform and inspire you to become all you can be as an American citizen.
Don’t let heretical textbooks or Howard Zinn’s hateful, Marxist A People’s History of the United States be the only books you read about American History. As Andrew Klavan quipped, “That’s like saying I want to get to know you, starting with your porn collection.”
You deserve much much better…
The Patriot’s History of the United States provides definitive objective history of our country, presented honestly and fairly. The authors don’t ignore America’s mistakes through the years. “Instead, they put them back in the proper perspective, celebrating the strengths of the men and women who cleared the wilderness, abolished
slavery, and rid the world of fascism and communism.”
Also for cultural matters, if you want to know about why modern reparations are pointless, just read the chapter on tragic consequences of Reconstruction, and the destructive “Lost Cause” myth. There’s so much to know.
The 5000-Year Leap steps through 28 Principles of Freedom our Founding Fathers said must be understood and perpetuated by every people who desire peace, prosperity, and freedom.
“Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” –Alexis de Tocqueville”
n 1787, when the Constitution was being ratified, a woman asked Ben Franklin what the founders had given the American people. “A republic,” he shot back, “if you can keep it.”
In If You Can Keep It Eric Metaxas explains that America is not a nation bounded by ethnic identity or geography, but rather by a radical and unprecedented idea, based on liberty and freedom for all. He cautions us that it’s nearly past time we reconnect to that idea, or we may lose the very foundation of what made us exceptional in the first place.
Changing culture is not easy. You need all the information you can get. Unfortunately, accurate information is nearly impossible to find because global communists want you brainwashed. They want you afraid, ignorant and indoctrinated.
That’s why the below are so important for your well-being:
I will concede that Black Rednecks and White Liberals is a terrible title. However, Thomas Sowell’s book is equal parts history and cultural-renewal. It is an eye-opener, not just for the black community, but also for our perceptions of race, of outsiders in our community, and our approach to history.
First, Sowell explodes the notion of an “African American” culture that should be nurtured. In fact, the key elements that we think of as part of the “black experience” isn’t even black!
Quote to consider: “Group solidarity may not only seal a group off from the larger surrounding society, it may seal them off from the truth about the internal causes of their own problems, making a solution more remote.”
The Rule of Law
Don’t let Marxists undermine one of the foundational elements of the American experience: our courts and the rule of law. In other countries, citizens are subjects of the government. In the USA, the government is the servant. The principle is “small government, big citizen.” That’s how you remain free.
In Men in Black: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America, Levin exposes countless examples of outrageous Supreme Court abuses, from promoting racism in college admissions, expelling God and religion from the public square, forcing states to confer benefits on illegal aliens, and endorsing economic socialism to upholding partial-birth abortion, restraining political speech, and anointing terrorists with rights.
“America’s founding fathers had a clear and profound vision for what they wanted our federal government to be,” says constitutional scholar and radio host Mark Levin, “But today, our out-of-control Supreme Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones to suit its own liberal whims––robbing us of our basic freedoms and the values on which our country was founded.”
