I published Uncommon Sense: A Common Citizen’s Guide to Rebuilding America in 2011.
In 1776, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense showered sparks on the tinder of revolution. With the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Americans formally claimed their rights, and that tinder exploded into a new age for mankind.
But more than 200 years later, the flames of freedom are dying. We cry that Washington has failed us, but that is not where the blame lies.
With our rights, We the People were given the duty to maintain them. We the People are the problem. And We the People are the solution. Our republic will be restored not through political revolution, but through a revolution of the soul—not as we point fingers upward, but as we turn inward.
In an age of blame, this is uncommon sense. And it’s precisely what America needs to rekindle her light.
