Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Founders v. Bush brings the wisdom and eloquence of the Founding Fathers back to the people, while unmasking the fraudulent PR machine that is corrupting their words and stealing our legacy." Jim Hightower Best selling author, radio commentator and editor of The Hightower Lowdown

Review:

"As Thomas Jefferson prophetically said, 'The only sure guarantees of our liberties are the people.' Especially now, that requires the people knowing why they are Americans. And this book Founders v. Bush is an illuminating beginning of that essential knowledge." —Nat Hentoff, The Village Voice

Review:

"A brilliantly put together book. " —David Swanson, democraticunderground.com

George Washington: "Beware of pretend patriotism." -1796

John Adams: "Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God s service when it is violating all His laws." -1816

Thomas Jefferson: "By oft repeating an untruth, men come to believe it themselves." -1813

James Madison: "Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad." -1798
