The Founding Fathers of the United States of America created the first free people in modern times. They wrote a new kind of Constitution which is now the oldest in existence. They built a new kind of commonwealth designed as a model for the whole human race. They believed it was thoroughly possible to create a new kind of civilization; giving freedom, equality, and justice to all. 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. This eBook includes the original index, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format, and also new illustrations.

The United States of America has been blessed with the world’s greatest political success formula. In a little over a century, this formula allowed a small segment of the human family—less than 6 percent—to become the richest nation on earth. It allowed them to create more than half of the world’s total output in production and enjoy the highest standard of living in the history of the world. In this book, we learn how the Founding Fathers discovered this success formula. Much of this discovery is told in the words of the Founders themselves, so that the reader can feel the power of their minds sweeping away thousands of years of bad government and illogical laws to formulate a whole new society based on human freedom. By returning to the roots of the Founders’ thinking, and contemplating the logic that they used in establishing the Constitution, we can better understand the challenges and solutions that confront us in today’s political world. This eBook includes the original index, illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

Both a manual and a program, "Teaching Children the 28 Principles of Liberty" expounds upon the principles in Cleon Skousen's book, "The 5000 Year Leap," and lays out a program to help adults teach the principles to children.This is not just a rewrite Skousen's book, but a manual for adults to teach children ages 8-11 these principles. The principles are not difficult to understand, but Skousen wrote his book for adults, not children. Each lesson teaches one principle per each hour-long meeting, with fun games, activities, role-plays, crafts, songs, and thoughtful, reflective discussions. The book is also a program. To present these lessons and entice children to want to learn them, the children join a club, called the Constitution Club. Each club member has a leadership position in the club. Every club has to have a president. This club also has a secretary of defense, a secretary of the treasury, a secretary of the interior, a chief of staff, and so forth. The club members all have specific responsibilities in their club. Club meetings start with an opening ceremony, including a prayer and pictures and quotes from our Founding Fathers supporting the principle learned about in that club meeting. They get to wear club uniforms. They receive immediate rewards for good behavior, such as participating in the activities, showing up on time, fulfilling their duties in their leadership positions. At the end of the 28 club meetings, if they fulfill all of the requirements they receive a beautiful plaque with their name engraved on it, the coveted James Madison Award.The layout is much like a cookbook: each club meeting lesson spells out what supplies the adult leader will need and step-by-step instructions for every activity. We are living the results of generations of people NOT knowing these principles. We elect leaders from the president on down to city councilmen who don't know these principles. We are how many trillions of dollars in debt? Our economy is stagnant. Our country is declining morally. Property rights are ignored. Religious liberty is allowed only if it doesn't interfere with the government's interests. One may like to elect leaders who will govern and lead following principles of liberty. But campaign trickery will only go so far. What needs to happen is for adults, especially parents, to teach their children these principles. When that happens the people will not have to be tricked into voting for the virtuous candidate, but they will seek him or her out and know what to look for. This will not happen in one election cycle. It has taken 100 years for Progressive Socialism to infiltrate our country; it may take a generation or longer to turn things around, one child's heart and mind at a time.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas delivers an extraordinary book that is part history and part rousing call to arms, steeped in a critical analysis of our founding fathers' original intentions for America. In 1787, when the Constitution was drafted, a woman asked Ben Franklin what the founders had given the American people. "A republic," he shot back, "if you can keep it." More than two centuries later, Metaxas examines what that means and how we are doing on that score. If You Can Keep It is at once a thrilling review of America's uniqueness—including our role as a "nation of nations"—and a chilling reminder that America's greatness cannot continue unless we embrace our own crucial role in living out what the founders entrusted to us. 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. From the Hardcover edition.

Fantastic Victory tells the brief but exciting account of Israel's 1967 miracle war, and how this conflict split the world into two camps--those for and those against Israel's fight for its life. With less than 3 million people facing the combined strength of 110 million Arabs supported by the Soviet Union, Israel should have been wiped off the globe. Instead, after six miraculous days, Israel shocked the world by defeating her enemy and winning back not only her ancient capital of Jerusalem, but hundreds of miles of enemy territory as well. Fantastic Victory explains the complexities behind the decades of failed negotiations and subsequent wars to conquer the Jews. Israel's past and present are uniquely central to the world's three great religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--and in the pages that follow, a framework for understanding Israel's future can be seen intimately tied to the outcome of its miracle Six Day War of 1967.
