What would the Founders do?
How many times have we asked that very question? What would the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Hamilton, and the Adams cousins say to our current problems, challenges and crises? Joseph Connor and Michael Duncan, authors of The New Founders have taken a stab at unraveling the mystery.
In their novel, the authors bring them back to life in today’s America and record their reactions as they address the growth of the federal government, our overly partisan political environment, and massive national debt and our economic malaise.
Each of these magnificent men left a lengthy written record of their opinions on almost everything. By going through original historical sources — their letters (often to one another), documents, speeches, and writings — they provide the answer to the key question: What would our Founding Fathers do?
It's good to talk.
