America's Founding Fathers disagreed about many significant things-the abolition of slavery, banking systems, and the limits of government power. But no matter whether or not they were Federalists, all colonial politicians agreed on one thing: a unified, free nation not beholden to any foreign power.
What would our Founding Fathers have thought of our nation's status today, in which every issue is divided between party lines, basic facts are disputed, and winning the next election is more important than what is best for the nation as a whole? What would they have thought about foreign meddling in our elections?
Broken America: Ten Guiding Principles to Restore America demands that, in order to create a safe and prosperous future for all citizens, we must look at ourselves in the mirror and ask ourselves if this is the country our Founding Fathers intended or what we want to pass down to our descendants. Author Jim White, PhD, presents the case that our country is deeply fractured and far off-course; the world is laughing at dysfunctional and backwards America, and has stopped seeing our country as a beacon of Democracy and "the land of the free and home of the brave." Dr. White asserts that what has transpired the past several years in political rhetoric and behavior is not okay and certainly not sustainable; the ship needs to be steered in the right direction in order for the country to be able to regain its stature as a true world leader. Our politicians must represent all of us in order for the United States of America to once again become united.
Courage. Integrity. Tolerance. Compromise. Vision. Respect. Truth-seeking. These are just a few of the vital guiding principles of Broken America-a call to action for us to restore our guiding principles to those of what our Founding Fathers envisioned.
