America Needs George Washington Today


America Needs George Washington Today!

I Have read the book, The Real George Washington, by Jay Parry and Andrew Allison.  Glenn Beck showcased this book in this 2010 show. I can assure you this topic is even more relevant today than it was then.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The book is an example of wonderful scholarship. Its authors let the account of Washington’s life show through his own words and the accounts of others who personally knew George Washington.

You may inspect the book here:

I beg your patience with the video I present below. It is nearly 40 minutes long. Also, at the start, Beck gets pretty emotional a couple of times. Maybe I have watched too many John Wayne movies. Additionally, the video images are slightly fuzzed, particularly in the beginning, though the images seem to get better as the video progresses. Please do not let these things deter you.

It is a marvelous presentation of  some of America’s formative years and its first incomparable leader and President. If time is an issue, perhaps you can watch this video in several segments. It is well worth your time and effort to do so.

I hope you will obtain and read this book. I will bet that you will never think of George Washington and the Founding of this great Constitutional Republic in the way you once did.

Do not be put-off by the following amazingly long URL, it will work.
