Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "Bestselling author and respected conservative Senator Mike Lee sheds new light on America's Declaration of Independence--and explains its relevance in the fight against big government today. Most Americans are familiar with the Constitution as an outline of for limited government. Few, however, understand how significant the Declaration of Independence was as an initial blow in the war against government encroachment. A champion of limited government, Senator Lee reinterprets the inspiring story of the colonists who fought the tyranny of King George, and shows how we find ourselves facing similar obstacles today: presidents who fail to enforce the law, a massive regulatory state, and a creeping centralization of power. In the thrilling style of his bestsellers OUR LOST CONSTITUTION and WRITTEN OUT OF HISTORY, Senator Lee makes history come alive to educate, entertain, and rally all patriots who care about the survival of liberty in America"-- Provided by publisher.
"There is perhaps no more powerful sentence in human history, written in Philadelphia in the oppressively hot summerof 1776: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Despite the earth-shattering power of Jefferson's simple sentence and the document in which it is found, many Americans today don't understand or appreciate the Declaration's gravity. As a result, we have lost touch with much of what makes our country so special: the distinctly American belief in the dignity of every human soul. Our nation was born in an act of rebellion against an all-powerful government. In Our Lost Declaration, Senator Mike Lee tells the dramatic, little-known stories of the offenses committed by the British crown against its own subjects. From London's attempts to shut down colonial legislatures to hauling John Hancock before a court without a jury, the abuses of a strong central government were felt far and wide. They spurred our Founders to risk their lives in defense of their rights, and their efforts established a vision of political freedom that would change the course of history"-- Provided by publisher.
