A More Perfect Union: What We the People Can Do to Reclaim by Ben Carson, Candy Carson

By Ben Carson, Candy Carson

Expensive Reader,
Many humans have puzzled why I've been talking out on arguable concerns for the previous couple of years. they are saying I've by no means held political workplace. I'm no longer a constitutional pupil. I'm now not even a attorney. All i will say to that's "Guilty as charged."
It's actual that I've by no means voted for the cheap the USA couldn't find the money for. I've by no means raised anyone's taxes. And I've by no means promised a lobbyist whatever in trade for a donation.
Luckily, none of that truly issues. Our founding fathers didn't need a everlasting governing category politicians. They sought after a republic, in Lincoln's phrases, "of the folk, through the folks, and for the people." a rustic the place any farmer, small-business proprietor, guide laborer, or health care provider may perhaps communicate up and make a difference.
I think that creating a distinction starts off with realizing our striking founding rfile, the U.S. structure. And as an individual who has played mind surgical procedure millions of occasions, i will be able to guarantee you that the structure isn't mind surgery.
The founders wrote it for usual women and men, in transparent, distinctive, easy language. They deliberately made it brief sufficient to learn in one sitting and to hold on your pocket.
I wrote this ebook to motivate each citizen to learn and consider the structure, and to assist protect it from those that misread and undermine it. In our age of political correctness it's in particular very important to safeguard the invoice of Rights, which promises our freedom to talk, endure fingers, perform our faith, and lots more and plenty more.
The structure isn't history—it's approximately your existence in the US this present day. And protecting it's approximately what sort of nation our kids and grandchildren will inherit.
I desire you'll get pleasure from studying concerning the interesting ways in which the founders tested the best democracy in history—and the ways in which fresh presidents, congresses, and courts have threatened that democracy.
As the Preamble says, the aim of the structure is to create a extra excellent union. My objective is to empower you to aid defend that union and safe the benefits of liberty.
Sincerely,
Ben Carson
