As our society celebrates injustice opposed to those that stand for his or her convictions, it’s tough to overlook the phrases of John Adams who wrote, “justice is a brilliant Christian in addition to ethical duty.” With the decline of advantage in such a lot of components of our tradition – from twerking on degree to dishonest scandals at universities to company robbery via competitive bankers – we should always take heed of George Washington’s caution that “liberty, whilst it degenerates into licentiousness, begets confusion, and regularly results in tyranny or a few woeful catastrophe.”
Liberty’s Secrets exposes readers to the Founding Fathers as by no means sooner than.

Liberty’s Secrets is like having a entrance row seat to the congresses and conventions the place those leaders hashed out the profound problems with existence and society.

In so doing, Liberty’s Secretsequips readers to take advantage of the Founders' wisdom and understanding to neutralize the cultural myths presently undermining American liberty.
It is difficult to not wonder if disaster is upon us. If ever there has been a time to develop up as a state, now could be the time. it's time to recuperate the morals and moorings of our Founders. it's time to rediscover Liberty’s secrets.
