America’s most respected right-wing intellectual, syndicated radio commentator Chuck Morse, is the author of a new book of commentary on the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.
American Testament – The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution – Keys to America’s Future demonstrates the vitality and the relevance of our founding documents. Responding to critics of the Constitution from both the left and the right, those who call for a new Constitutional Convention or who view the founding documents as outdated and anachronistic, Morse, the author of 8 non-fiction books, offers a line-by-line analysis of the American founding documents demonstrating the enduring centrality of the American political theory that they codify and represent.
Morse argues that the Declaration of Independence and the U.S.Constitution continue to provide the foundation for the political and social progress that we as a people enjoy today and too often take for granted.
“The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution are so easy to understand that the average American teenager should be able to read them,” notes Morse, who is on a mission to raise the constitutional literacy of his fellow Americans. “The principle idea of America’s founding documents is that the sovereign citizen is protected from the government. The Constitution grants the government narrowly proscribed powers, and those powers not specifically granted to the government by the Constitution reside with the citizen who is endowed by God with inalienable rights,” explains Morse.
If every American carried around a copy of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution in his or her pocket, and read it while waiting in line or while stuck in traffic, then Americans would begin to decipher the complexities of politics more easily. Constitutional literacy would lead to the American people re-asserting their natural sovereign rights when government usurps those rights. At the same time, Americans would begin to demand that their elected representatives re-assert powers that they were granted by the Constitution, powers that they have in many cases turned over to un-elected and unaccountable private entities.
“Constitutional literacy would go a long way toward enabling Americans to take back control over their own lives and destinies,” contends Morse.
