Brian Vanyo has written a book The American Ideology. In it he explains how the Founding Fathers helped create a country where people were encouraged to keep and treasure their God-given rights. The individual was supreme and the state was merely intended to protect the individual’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Fast forward to today, we have large portions of the populace dependent upon the generosity of the state. So many of the nation’s ills can be traced back to the failure to honor the Founders’ intent. But it’s not too late to change and Brian’s got some great ideas about returning to our ideals.
