In a few years the struggle of our Revolution (1775-1781) will be come trivial and anecdotal and irrelevant as the Elitist globalists amass greater corporate wealth and power over the common people of a former America. What will constitute a mélange babble of many cultures, a tribal mix without honor, direction or purpose other than to get rich and be safe will be the furnishings of a socialist government. Our nation’s Founders possessed no grandiose plans to form a Continental Union, as our Autocratic Pariahs in power plan to do by their evil schemes of America for sale. But with the perversion of the American dream and an almost defiant ignorance of our history, we are destined to lose our sovereignty and all the bounty of gifts we have given to the world.
In my book I have tried to re-visit certain of the battles, the congressional scenes of debate and contention from which the America of today sprang. The will, within this century, become but quaint reminders of America’s genius as we try unsuccessfully to reconstitute that glorious two-centuries past. Our Founders never dreamt of world dominion or a continental empire-state; they only contemplated security, peace and the freedom of independence won from tyranny. By our mutual labors and our inalienable rights and our faith in our creator, we could achieve what we needed and envisioned.
Before that history disappears forever into the poisonous vapors of selfish intrigue, greedy globalism and self-seeking ambition, I thought it germane in our present existence to try to recover elements of that struggle to obtain the liberties which we now discredit as pandering values-enforcement and unfairness to the illiterate, the ignorant, the alien. For they have already proven their contempt for God and for our ways and our laws. They increasingly abuse our laws to destroy our traditions and our proven institutions. Ambition is dangerous when it knows not from whence it comes and possesses no vision for a future that values freedom as the gift of Sovereign God.
My scenes are not the work of an exhaustive scholarship, but are the work of a story-teller who finds it enriching to explore and illumine the human-ness of those courageous men - Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, Madison and John Adams – they who brought America’s potential to life. My book is the story of their selfless foresight, their courageous struggle and their preeminent sacrifices.
