The Book Of The American's Creed

I came across this book at a second-hand bookstore in Snohomish, Washington. I’m always on the lookout for older books that describe how politics were viewed and approached by American Citizens before about 1930. It is my opinion that with the discarding of the gold-standard, the great depression, and the income-tax our country took a radical step away from where the Founding Fathers had intended our country to go.

This book is relatively short. I read the entire book in an afternoon. The intent of the book is to explain to the reader The American’s Creed. It tells the story of how the contest came to be, who won the contest, the roles of the parties involved, and most importantly, the meaning behind The American’s Creed.

I found the book rather compelling as it parallels many of my own libertarian-based beliefs of the proper role of government. It is interesting to see how life in the United States must have been in the early 20th century. The book explores the duties and responsibilities of the American Citizen as it relates to his/her government. It also explores such concepts as property rights, self-control and responsibility, and State and National sovereignty.
