We are at a critical time in America’s history. We as citizens have the responsibility to stand up for the principles of freedom that made our country great. This is inspired by the book, “The 5000 Year Leap” written by Cleon Skousen.

    Excellent book, Skousen goes through 28 principles that the Founders developed from their study of sources such as Cicero, Locke, Montesquieu, Adam Smith, and others. Skousen has done what most people don’t have the time or inclination to do: Study the original source materials and bring it all together.

    Obviously, it would be great if every American studied the sources listed above as well as The Federalist Papers, the writings of Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, and others. Since that is unlikely, this is a great way to gain a good general understanding of the roots of our nation.
    I also suggest reading The Naked Capitalist and The Naked Communist by the same author.

    In Liberty,

      I agree these are great books. You can find the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers and other important documents that established America’s foundation of Liberty under the Founding Documents section.
