A must if you want to better understand the Constitution Sept. 17 2011
By Mark Morris - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Have you ever wondered why it is OK to display the 10 Commandments at the Supreme Court yet the Supreme Court ruled you can't display them in public schools? How "Separation of Church and State" found its way into our laws but is not in the Constitution? This book shows exactly how this happened. While reading this book I found myself looking up Supreme Court decisions and reading the opinions and the dissenting opinions. It turns out you don't need to be a Constitutional Scholar to understand how we got to where we are and the Founding Fathers clearly wanted citizens to understand the Constitution. The "Separation of Church and State" concept has only been around since 1947. Seven of the nine Supreme Court Justices on the Court that made this ruling were put on the court by FDR. And it was still only a 5-4 ruling! His court packing scheme might have failed but it turns out he packed the court anyway. These ruling are not based in law, they are based in politics and it is time that we stand up to a Judiciary that is not concerned with following the Constitution but on rewriting the Constitution. I learned more about our Founders and the Constitution reading this book than I did in grade school, high school, and college combined. The more people that read this book the better off our country will be.

Did you know? Dec 22 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
That church services were held in the capital building and was attended by most of all the Founding Fathers and others? That at one time the federal government provided tax money to schools if the Bible was part of their curriculum and schools that refused to teach from the Bible the tax money was withheld? That many of the liberal, socialist-indoctrinating, ivy-league colleges and universities were originally founded to train young minds in law, science, history, etc. based on Biblical-morals and Judeo-Christian ethics? There is a lot more to this book than just these tidbits to show the truth of the founding of our nation and the Original Intent of those who gave their "lives, fortunes and sacred honor" (Declaration of Independence). If you are looking for the truth in history, don't read it from some revisionist historian looking for a book deal and the pitiful money and fame it will bring that person; read for yourself the Founding Fathers own words in their speeches, letters and personal communication with those who were their contemporaries. This is a most excellent source for their Original Intent.

The best book about the founders Oct. 5 2011
By M. Baldanza - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
David Barton brilliantly describes the real intent of the founders in this great book. Lots of references that help us research even further. We can get a glimpse on how the liberals and fake historians try to rewrite history. If we want to know about the formation of America we must go to the founders and read what they wrote. This is a must read and must have book, that we should use as a means of empowerment in our conversations about the founding of America.

Well researched March 20 2013
By Patrick C. Ferguson Sr. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Others can disagree. David Barton wrote this book with the help of many people. He uses more foot notes than I have ever seen in a book before. I find myself jumping to foot notes for sources. I believe what David Barton claims that you cannot trust history books unless they were written from 1920 to 1950. After that History books took on Destructive attitude by writers of history who would not even put foot notes as to where they got their research from. He cites at least two professors of history that wrote history books together and are being used in our University system that are full of serious error's. I only presume that why would a College student even question a text book that was issued to them or was in the book store and required reading. Our history is being watered down, our Constitution taken out of context. David Barton is refreshing to bring out the truth. I will be going back to the old history books to render opinion's on our forefathers so that I can see the correct meaning of those very important people.

A GREAT book for our time and for our future generations. Nov. 9 2009
By Saxman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Do read this book. Do check out the sources. Read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for yourself before passing judgment on this book. The book has alot of factual, historical information that you will not hear in public school education today. The author draws some personal conclusions which you may or may not agree with. However it will be hard to dispute the acutal words written by those who said them and lived them. It is a must read.
