The America I Grew Up In
Posted by Literary Titan
The Rise and Fall of the American Republic give readers a look at how the US government was originally structured vs. how it is structured today. Why was this an important book for you to write?
I love my country but I felt it dying in my lifetime. I wanted to know why. I felt the need to share what I found to bring awareness to those who never knew the America I grew up in. .Without knowing what the disease is, you can’t treat it in order to survive. The people are the vital organs of the country- without sufficient recovery the country can’t survive. I hoped the book would enlighten enough people to encourage, not force, a turnaround, a movement towards a healthy lifestyle that will return each American to a thriving, strong and prosperous existence.
How much research did you undertake for this book and how much time did it take to put it all together?
It took over 6 months to research and write this book, I started with religion in the United States. Why has the message changed since I was a teenager? Originally, eternal life was the result of the lack of sin. Today saying you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior is sufficient to be saved from eternal death without the need to desire to imitate Christ. As a result, continuing to live a sinful life doesn’t matter. The change from “Revealed Religion” to a “Social Religion” led me to additional research on how the absence of the religious principles our country was founded on, allowed the progression of other ideologies into every aspect of our lives like the spread of a disease.
What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?
Self-reliance is critical to living a good life. When you stumble, you get up. Practice make perfect. It gives you self-respect, pride in your character, and it gives others someone to look up to, respect for you, and trust in you as a role model. It encourages others to be like yourself-reliant. You will cultivate appreciation, true friends and companions. Someday, when you can no longer care for yourself, others, who followed your lead, will be there for you. You reap what you sow. Should that spread across the nation, there will be no need for dependence on government, no ability for government to control every aspect of your life, because you have, with good reason, self-respect.
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?
The book was written to bring awareness, without being judgmental, that you have a choice: Live the way Americans lived before the 1950’s, or after the alliance of the Democratic Party with the Communist Party in 1953. It is since 1953 that the agenda towards government control began to infiltrate and degrade the education system, and never ending social programs proliferated to replace self-reliance, and guarantee votes from the poorly educated and the unmotivated. I believe without a return to Godly principles and the 2-parent family, a 3 R’s education system and a standard of self-reliance, the next best option will be, for those who do, to prepare to move to a country (like Costa Rica) whose monetary system is not dependent or linked to the U.S. Dollar. Because it seems inevitable that our policies will result in a total collapse of our government and it’s currency, bringing us all down into poverty and under the thumb of a new government that will control all industry, telling you where to live, to work, and paying you what they can afford (a form of Universal Income). We will be equally poor.
