Scattered across our website are books that focus
on what has made America great -- our invention of and dedication to
human liberty. This page gathers all those items here for easy review.
Americans invented the idea that the people are sovereign,
and that government exists to serve us, not the other way around,
a lesson today's public schools gloss over, if they cover it at all.
This stunning break from the way the world had always turned
led to the most abundant, successful and admired society in history.
It freed people to accomplish whatever they could imagine,
and when you set people free that way there's little they cannot do.
Fueled by the awesome power of wholesome self interest,
free markets, capitalism, individualism, government of limited powers
and a strong belief in moral values, America became a shining beacon
that continues to this day to draw people to its shores.
These books celebrate and explore what has made this nation
the linchpin of freedom for the entire planet.
A wonderful set of easy-reading books
that celebrates what makes America great!
A perfect gift idea for kids or anyone
who wants to understand this great nation
and help preserve its unique values.

AND PRETTY OLD!
ETHICS An Early (1890!) American Handbook By Benjamin Comegys 128 p. #ET Only $7.95
Who can live up to these simple, decent standards—but this spells out the America you’d like to see our nation get become again! A marvelous little book, a sharp reproduction of the original 1890 text that describes how good people behave, from honesty to industry, duty to playmates to “treatment of dumb animals.” May sound lightweight today, but only if you've been dumbed down: you will instantly recognize what America (and you?) have lost and need back. Worth every penny. I devoured my copy, underlined everything, got extras for friends.

By Marijo Tinian, 162 p. #HTR $17.95
Just what it says: Read the enormously warming stories of 13 patriotic Americans—rekindle the secrets to teach future generations the values that have made this nation great. Instilling the virtues that define the American character, Debbie Lee, the mom of Marc Alan Lee, America’s first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq, is helping the author bring this book to the public eye. It’s worth it. Find out how Newt Gingrich, Reagan’s AG Edwin Meese and other notable Americans were raised or raised their own, to have pride in America. Inspirational, with key points for sharing.

ORIGINAL INTENT David Barton, 552 p., $12.95
Based on thousands of primary sources, this book displays the difference between what the Founders put in our Constitution, and what the courts and legislatures have twisted it into -- a near-total destruction of the nation’s fabric. Get the info you need to understand and refute the revisionists, champion the true meaning of America, and help take the nation back to its roots. From absurd views of religion to powers it does not have, destruction of states' rights, eliminating separation of powers and more, government is far from Original Intent.

Intense insight into how bad work at the High Court has attacked our fundamental principles. Answers the questions about why America is sliding downhill, and provides the intel needed to help stop the damage. Destruction of the limits on government, expansion of federal powers and disregard for constitutional requirements have combined to redefine this country. Superb research, very easy reading, helps you see.
Organized by the type of harm the Court's decision does, with dishonorable mentions for other cases that pile on the injuries. For example, Taking private property, Earning an honest living, Gun-owners' rights, Lawmaking by bureaucrats, Equal protection and racial preferences, seven more.
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill
By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano 240 p. #ST $15
Grossman, a scholar, soldier, speaker, one of the world’s foremost experts on human aggression, issues this call to action to parents, teachers, citizens—he has trained soldiers to kill, and sees the same impassionate techniques aimed at our kids, with predictable results. We’re encouraging psychotic behavior, teaching the mechanics, getting sick results, read the science, digest the research, get tools to fight back.
AMERICA'S GODLY HERITAGE David Barton, 64 p., $5.95
Our gun rights and American exceptionalism are grounded in religious principles. All the messages you get daily to the contrary are basically lies, distortion and revisionism, and this book proves it. Our Founding Fathers said so in no uncertain terms, this inexpensive little item makes it crystal clear. David Barton has done it again -- wall-to-wall quotes and excerpts destroy left-wing myths about church and state -- the author makes the case, by quoting the Founders, that faith in God is crucial to moral and just government.
A CITIZEN'S GUIDE TO THE
DECLARATION AND CONSTITUTION Mathew Spalding, 110 p., $7.95
The easiest way to come up to speed about the documents that make America what it is, guard our freedoms and set the stage for all our rights. You’ll be knowledgeable about why we’re great, easily defend the principles and structure of the American Dream. The Heritage Foundation, one of the nation's leading think tanks, produced this basic guide to help fill in the gaps left by our deplorable school system -- which, if they even teach people about these documents at all, might provide a distorted view of what they are, what they mean and why they're so vitally important. Highly recommended.
THE SECOND AMENDMENT
Preserving the Inalienable Right of Individual Self-Protection
David Barton, $5.95
This skinny little book has more to say about what the 2nd Amendment means than many books three times its size. If you want the clear, concise, well-documented heart of the gun-rights debate, here it is. It relies on all the early thinking and writing from the Colonial days, gives citations for everything, and provides the verbal ammunition you need to make an authoritative case any time you speak up about the right to keep and bear arms. Why is the Second Amendment so important? This makes it clear.
EVERY MAN BE ARMED
by Stephen P. Halbrook, The Independent Institute, $19.95
Sets the historical record straight in a detailed scholarly way. Put to rest at last any questions you may have about the intent
behind the 2nd Amendment. With 1,300 annotations, Halbrook
looks at, reports on, and quotes sheaves of actual original
documents of the founding fathers. There is some invented confusion
on this issue in America today, but as you'll see, there wasn't
any back then. The title is from a quote by Patrick
Henry, "The whole object is that every man be armed.
Everyone who is able may have a gun." Henry's peers
make similarly unambiguous remarks, removing all doubt.

Includes original historical documents, many filmed here for the first time.

TALKIN' TO AMERICA
Bill of Rights or Bust
Produced and Written by Kelly Daley, $19.95
This made-for-TV production is the video to own if you want to help people understand the Bill of Rights, and why they should personally support our freedoms. By focusing on the entire BOR it gets the point across about gun rights better than anything else available. It is a heart warming, endearing video that instills great pride in what makes America great, and is perfect for showing to friends, relatives and people who need it most -- the ones who just don't get it about guns, liberty, personal responsibility and limited government. An excellent teaching tool for classrooms from grade school through high school.
The Politics of Gun Control:
Directed by Aaron Zelman, $29.95 Produced by Aaron Zelman and Dr. Ignatius Piazza
Screenplay by Claire Wolfe
Richard W. Stevens
You've heard that disarming the public is the first step toward genocide. This shocking video documents the unthinkable slaughter of unarmed human populations by their governments during the last century. The biggest killers on earth are not the criminals -- they're the tyrannts who run renegade government forces against their own people -- unarmed defenseless people. "If slaves had weapons there would be no way to keep them slaves."
The U.N does nothing or makes matters worse, and people who would disarm Americans bring us closer to the disaster "that can't happen here." Watch this alarming, gut-wrenching video, and show it to your friends. It could be a life saver.
