Endorsement 

"This is a 'must read' book. It needs to be placed in the hands of all thinking persons. It is a masterpiece on the role and responsibility of any good citizen, especially the Christian citizen. It should be the textbook for all high school courses in Economics and required reading (if not a course) for all college students. In fact, all the leaders of our civil government, from the President down to the bureaucrats, should read it and then consider and ponder its contents and the results of not heeding its instructions, warnings, and encouragements. The comparison between the philosophy of socialism and communism and what the Founders envisioned and what the scriptures enjoin is masterly presented without animosity: just clear and straightforward. At 68 years of age, with all my reading on this subject, no book has been as helpful to my understanding, other than the Holy Scriptures. One must wonder how different the situation would be today in America if it had been used consistently in our educational institutions!" - Pastor Don Scott
