The American Dream, the yearning for freedom inside of all Americans, no matter what race, creed or color, has lost its luster in recent years. American Dream? How about staying ahead on my bills? Dazed and confused by the endless maize of government regulations, most American’s have reduced their dreams to keeping their head above the water. A new book has the map out of the maize. Robert Ringer, the author of three number one best selling books, a true lover of liberty and justice, has captured the principles in his newly re-released book, Restoring the American Dream, to return America to greatness. What Margaret Thatcher famously quipped, while leading Great Britain back from the brink of disaster, still holds true today, “The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money to steal.” Mr. Ringer eloquently captures the fundamental errors in our national policies, sharing where we have veered off track from the Founder Father’s vision, while gently directing us back to the principles that made America great. Whether you are a Democrat, a Republican, a Libertarian, or undecided, this book will awaken inside of you a hunger to learn more.
The American Dream is not dead, only sick from heavy doses of government intervention. Our economy shakes like a drug addict suffering a downer from his latest hit, searching for the next government quick fix, instead of cleaning out his system of every bad habit. It’s time to put socialism and Keynesianism where it belongs, on the ash heap of history. People did not travel to America from around the world to seek the latest government program. No, people traveled to America for an opportunity to succeed or fail based upon their own efforts. Mr. Ringer explains that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were the only guarantees that government was to insure, the rest would be accomplished by your efforts and God’s Providence. Restoring the American Dream is a clarion call for individualism, self-responsibility, and personal freedom, a perfect fit for small business owners who proclaim this message every night.
Entrepreneurs from all over the world flocked to America for freedom. I pray the trend doesn’t reverse, entrepreneurs flocking away from American to escape oppressive taxation and policies. Whether you agree with every point isn’t as important as thinking through the points and Mr. Ringer’s book will make you think. Every concerned American needs to get informed on what government has done to our liberty, our money, our taxes and thus our futures. God Bless, Orrin Woodward
