Some of the most important names associated with the push for limited government at America’s founding have been shoved out of history, contends Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who added that the effort has coincided with an expanding federal government.
Lee, who recently was elected to a second term in the U.S. Senate, is author of “Written Out of History: The Forgotten Founders Who Fought Big Government,” which he said is designed to give adults and children a better idea of the vision of the nation’s Founding Fathers. Lee told WND and Radio America limited government isn’t some anachronistic vestige of the colonial era but the fundamental premise of the U.S. system of government….. read more
Why is our history going away? Why are they not teaching America’s history? Below are a few articles explaining why.
Common Core ties to Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia
