After the surprising re-election of Barack Obama, many Americans are wondering what is happening to the United States of America — and what his re-election will mean for our country. How has America gone from being a nation based upon the concepts of limited government as set forth in the Constitution to electing leaders who oppose the very document they’ve sworn to uphold?
The title for the new book is “Our American Awakening” and the synopsis is:
Our American Awakening
The Twentieth Century was widely known the “American Century.” The United States of America led the world economically, militarily, and even morally. Her families and communities were strong, her currency was sound, and her military was second to none.
But as the new century opens, America staggers from one crisis to another and her leaders are bicker rather than lead. Her enemies openly mock her around the world and brazenly attack her vital interests. At home, her citizens are divided against one another more than they have been in generations. The nation is deeply entrenched in a culture war being waged between the Progressives and the conservatives, and every passing election only draws more vitriol and animosity from the opposing side.
As America’s problems continue to worsen, our elections have shown that America will not be saved by our elected officials. If America is to be healed and restored, her restoration must begin somewhere much more foundational – it must begin with her people. But too many Americans don’t even know what it means to even be an American any more, and few can even articulate why the United States was founded in the first place.
Americans need to relearn what made our country great, even when the Republic was only a few years old. Americans need to know what it means to be Americans once again. America will not be healed by politicians nor from the Oval Office, but around our kitchen tables, by our communities, and from our churches. But where do we start?
Why is the American Experiment failing today, and what must be done to restore our great nation?
