Welcome to: Beyond the NATIONAL MYTH

“For the great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie — deliberate, contrived, and dishonest — but the myth — persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” —President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), commencement address, Yale University, 1963

America’s founding concept and practices of self-governance arose out of a popular, eighteenth century philosophical perspective that set the country apart from a world ruled by monarchs. Yet, why have so many of America’s original governing principles disappeared? This is the big question requiring explanations that are more historically accurate than politically correct.

In the 21st century, the U.S. Government appears to do whatever it wants; how is it that only when the Constitution and Bill of Rights happen to benefit the government they are upheld? You are kindly invited to discover the rest of the American story: Find answers that will surprise you because a hidden platform of liberty already exists for those willing to claim it.

“Mind blowing history in your book; I had never thought of our Constitution in such a way. Awesome investigating is all I have to say.  ~Wayne Jones

“The author has ripped the mask off of our image of America. The sickness of arrogance, divine right and rule by force did not end with the defeat of the British but was inhaled and ingested and faithfully passed across the seas and from generation to generation upon the ratification of the Constitution of the United States. ~R.B.
