For example, Jefferson is famous for editing the Bible to eliminate supernatural events the Jefferson Bible ; Franklin rejected most of the supernatural dogma of Christianity and seldom went to church. Most of the remaining principles Skousen cites relate to the importance of restraining the federal government property rights, individual rights, states rights.
In this area, according to Skousen, the US has gone far astray of it's founding document. But the intrusions of the federal government started way before the New Deal. The Federal Reserve established in , fractional banking, the income tax, any governmental attempts to relieve poverty--all violate constitutional principles. According to Skousen most of the unconstitutional stuff started around when organizations like "the Intercollegiate Socialist Society became popular on major university campuses".
By the 's, he writes "the inner spirit of the old America had been hollowed out".
The 5000 Year Leap
I wonder how the country made it through the 20th century? I also wonder if the people who read this book are thinking through the Skousen time-line? After all the major point of the book is that America is prosperous because the Founders limited the federal government.
So, it would seem that an expansion of the federal government's power should lead to a decrease in prosperity. Exactly the opposite is the historical fact.
For example, the Civil War saw a vast increase in the federal government's power. Not only did the federal government interfere with states by preventing them from seceding, it began promoting economic development, The Pacific Railroad Act of and the Homestead Act, Land Grant College Act, and so forth.
Contrary to the Skousen principles, the result of this federal intrusion was a huge economic boom in the final decades of the 19th century.
Except, I might add, in the very place that rejected federal involvement, the south. After Reconstruction failed, the south, holding high the Skousen banner of state's rights, low taxes, and no federal involvement, remained an economic backwater for decades.
Similarly, as Skousen demonstrates, the Great Depression and WWII saw a vast expansion of the government's involvement in economic activity. But for some reason Skousen doesn't seem to notice that the subsequent 35 years were an unprecedented increase in prosperity. Thus, U. Constitution incorporates enlightened ideas.
Ronald Mann's introduction to the 10th-anniversary edition praises Skousen for grasping the country for choosing "Christ or Chaos" and for acknowledging that its future depends on "accepting and demonstrating God's government. Princeton University historian Sean Wilentz , a self-described humanist, disputes the book's claims on taxes, the redistribution of wealth, the separation of church and state, and the "In God We Trust" motto.
Either proposition would have astounded James Madison, often described as the guiding spirit behind the Constitution, who rejected state-established religions and, like Alexander Hamilton, proposed a central government so strong that it could veto state laws.
Wilentz acknowledges that the Founding Fathers rejected what Samuel Adams denounced as "utopian schemes of leveling," but he notes that some of the Founding Fathers were quite pragmatic when it came to policy specifics.

Please help improve this article by introducing citations to additional sources. July Retrieved from " https:To support this and everything else in the book there is a profusion of quotations from the Founders. I'll admit I came in predisposed to dislike this both because of the arrogance with which people cite this as proof that everyone who disagrees with them politically is stupid, and because Cleon Skousen wrote a horribly, HORRIBLY false exposition titled "The Atonement" that is still circulating, especially in Brazil, and causing all kinds of misunderstandings of the doctrine of the Atonement.
These quotes are almost certainly cherry-picked in the extreme. The Year Leap does a powerful job of conveying a piece of their vision.
It was kind of like taking a medicine that tastes bad, and the best way for me to get through it was to read one chapter a day. Between the Constitution and the Ten Commandments, we have everythin According to this thoughtful book, we have lost our way in this country, and I agree.
