Many Americans today are expressing.
Frustration with the direction of our nation some say it's a result of the overbearing nature of our federal government so our next guest says it's time to get back to our roots.
Founded in the constitution.
Brian Danielle is a US navy veteran and author of the new book.
The American ideology taking back our country with the philosophy of our founding fathers let me start -- -- Brian by saying thank you for your service.
-- and thank you and I know what inspired you to write this book was -- Well this begin this this is a three year project for me is to get in 2009 when the debates over obamacare.
Were really at their crescendo and for me it was astonishing to see so many congressmen and congresswomen.
Not have an opinion about whether or not a voluntary even.
Was constitutional these are people who raise their right hand take the oath to -- and defend the constitution and yet they don't even have an opinion on the constitutionality of something that is is just.
Huge regulatory burden on American people.
And by the way and John Roberts -- attacks that you -- that but it is it was really frustrating for you to have that -- his conclusion.
And you say overall this is bill to the bigger question the overbearing nature of our federal government -- which way.
Well I mean this this this is why wrote the book because you know I'm frustrated I think a lot of many millions Americans are frustrated with the direction what's our country is going and so I wrote this book really.
To go back to to look at our history and what the founding fathers intended for the constitution.
And so this really addresses a few points first of all.
It it it it addresses how we got here how the federal government really came to -- this overbearing burden in our lives today.
And -- it it shows.
Exactly where we're gonna go -- we continue down this road obviously the federal government is growing by the day.
Regulations continue to increase certainly with obamacare our national debt is growing immensely.
And so what's gonna happen for us in the future what's gonna happen for future generations we continue down this track and then.
-- -- -- -- -- -- How how we actually regain control of our government and in my researcher what I did -- I mean at the conclusion that I came to is that we have to go back to founding principles that are.
That establish liberty in the United States.
And and I think any reader what -- reads the book will come at the same conclusion.
And and what I the -- that I got away from your book Brian is that.
You said that the American ideology is based on the idea that our rights to life liberty and property.
Come from god.
And not from the government.
That's exactly right and that's something that's colossal a lot of people today.
This and the in the America that -- what I -- the American ideology it's really.
Like you said that this idea that life liberty or property or our rights that are -- to us by god not government this is really natural law theory.
Which has been around for centuries but I place the American tag on it because.
For the first time in the history of the world the American people took this theory and reduce it to practice and government our founding fathers.
Created the constitution they established the federal government.
Not so that government to control our.
-- that they could redistribute wealth force us to buy insurance -- -- like that what what they did was.
Established got a government under the constitution to unite a free people in society under laws that were designed to preserve.
Those natural rights right and Rick Santorum saw this book -- knew you endorse the book it's out there right now thanks much for joining us.
Thank you for having -- right all right.
