Patriotism and citizen activism have been declining in the United States since 9/11. At the same time, we citizens face political, ideological and cultural threats to our freedom. These threats are not only by foreign adversaries, but threats coming from within our own country. In this book the author has detailed these threats: an out-of-control federal government, regulations by millions of unelected bureaucrats, anti-American individuals, and radical organizations that work to divide us and transform our constitutional republic into a Marxist-socialist state. Why and how is this happening? Have apathy and fear of speaking out against the curtailments of our liberty settled into the American mind-set? If we expect to preserve our freedom, it is up to each of us to be willing to defend it as did the first American patriots in the American Revolution. Colleen Roberts profiles four people who are standing up for America and taking action. Their stories illustrate how constructive citizen activism that builds on the best of America is the antidote to the efforts underway to destroy our nation as we know it. These citizens are the "New Patriots". Suggestions for what you can do, a resources section, and a suggested reading list of books highlighting the finest aspects of America and Americans are included.
What has happened to the patriotism and pride in America that citizens felt and displayed after our homeland was attacked on September 11, 2001? In the aftermath of that event, the outward signs of patriotism were everywhere. American flags were flown, chants of "USA-USA" were heard in communities across the country, at public ceremonies, and on the steps of the Capitol Building by members of both political parties. The American spirit of unity in times crisis was on full display. In the years since, Americans have lost confidence in themselves and in their nation. American solidarity has fractured along political, ideological, cultural and racial lines. Citizens are losing their freedom due to the explosive growth of the administrative state and its massive bureaucracy. Intrusive mandates and regulations now control every aspect of our lives. What was once a free press is now just a propaganda organ for government policies. Anti-American organizations and social justice agitators funded by billionaires are creating deep racial division and societal chaos in the country. Destructive ideologies such as Marxism and Critical Race Theory are transforming our educational system, our military services and American society as a whole. At the same time, our founding principles and the Constitution are also under assault. Many citizens have succumbed to the pernicious portrait of the United States as a racist nation and have come to believe the worst about their own country. The suppression of free speech and dissenting opinion have resulted, to a great extent, in an apathetic and fearful populace. We are now in a battle to reclaim our country and our rights as free citizens. There can be no surrender in this fight. But "New Patriots" of courage are stepping up and taking action in their own ways to support America and oppose the effort to transform the nation. Here are their stories. Like the original patriots, they are everyday people from different backgrounds. They believe in the promise of America and our founding principles of liberty, equality, opportunity and self-government. By their leadership they are demonstrating their commitment to their country and the preservation of our freedom. The author has suggestions as to how you can join them in this vital mission.
