Author Chris Salamone offers inspiring action steps that every American can implement tomorrow and feel that they're making a difference. Exemplary citizenship requires learning the roots of our country's once-great promise and embodying the values of personal responsibility, gratitude, and sacrifice. Salamone presents revolutionary ideas for: revamping entitlement programs or eliminating them entirely; implementing a two-year mandatory national service, and investing in early childhood education -- in schools and in the home -- to create a greater sense of citizenship in future generations right from the start. While Salamone has strong conservative connections, this book attacks the weaknesses seen in both parties, and is intriguing regardless of one's political position. Working with Dr Gilbert Morris, the author analyses our founding documents and creates clear and specific connections between the loss of our founding values and the problems we face in our current political, economic, and cultural environment.
