Norris, recipient of the 2004 Man of the Year Award from the Women for Constitutional Government, offers insightful analysis and perspective into the unique and specific American principles – no longer taught in most classrooms – that once liberated us from the politics of tyranny. Discover how to help restore the public education system – and, in turn, a constitutional government – by bringing back these principles, which were established on the belief “In God We Trust.”
Norris’ book and blog contain a rich treasury of historical information including pertinent quotes from the Founding Fathers and others – complete with references to the primary sources which provide a foundation for further research. A great resource for students of American History and Government!
“. . . And liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right, from the frame of their nature, to knowledge, as their great Creator, who does nothing in vain, . . . besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable . . . right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean, of the characters and conduct of their rulers. Rulers are no more than attorneys, agents, and trustees for the people; and if the cause, the interest and trust, is . . . wantonly trifled away, the people have a right to revoke the authority . . .. And the preservation of the means of knowledge among the lowest ranks, is of more importance to the public than all the property of all the rich men in the country.” ~John Adams, vice president under George Washington, and second president of the United States
