    Our founding fathers acknowledged that Christianity was the core of our country. In Levin's words, "philosophy and practical politics are linked and, therefore, have a real effect on the life of the individual. Progressives, on the other hand, believe that mankind is perfectible and that centralized government is the means to achieving this social engineering, and they have been working steadily toward that goal in America for more than a century.

You can pre-order a copy of the book and we will send it to you when it becomes available. The book debuted at No 1 on the NY Times bestseller list.

If leaders repress their own people, we must make clear that it constrains our ability to cooperate with them. And if rights come from government, then they can be taken or altered by government, and thus they are not rights at all, but privileges to be granted or revoked by the whim of our government masters.
