Inhaltsangabe: "America is in a state of crisis. It is declining politically, economically and morally,", the author writes. The message of Reversing America s Decline are first, that America s decline could have been avoided, and it can be reversed. Second, the present strategy for reforming the U.S. Government and reversing decline is futile. Reformers complain about our government, protest its policies and actions, hold rallies, petition Congress to pass laws or propose Constitutional amendments. The strategy cannot work because federal civil officers have neither the inclination nor the power to reform government. But the people do. There are several ways. Author Neal Herrick turns to the Founding Fathers, specifically Thomas Jefferson. The Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Federalist Papers are the driving forces of American government. Thomas Jefferson held that the Federalist Papers contain the genuine meaning of the Constitution.Author Neal Herrick focuses on the manifest tenor,the general principles, structural principles and operational principles as they are stated and implied in the Declaration and shows how Jefferson s interpretation could be applied to today s government to reverse national decline.
