The following is an excerpt covering the writing of John Locke from my forthcoming book, The Light & the Rod. It uses writings of Machiavelli, Hobbes, Spinoza, Locke, and Rousseau to demonstrate the outcome of trying to reconcile Judeo-Christian ideas with pagan ones, particularly allowing government to put its hands on education. But this too is nothing new. We can trace this idea back to the period just before the Renaissance and Enlightenment. Pagan philosophy was only preparatory for Christian ideas; it is not consistent with them. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Read More

The Legacy Guy
The Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, and announced the separation of the thirteen American colonies from Great Britain. With this, a new nation was formed—the United States of America. History verifies Thomas Jefferson as the composer of the original draft.

Rita Dunaway: Restoring America’s Soul: Advancing Timeless Conservative Principles in a Wayward Culture
Everyone who calls themselves a 'conservative' must read this book. I haven't read a simpler, clearer description of conservatism or a better indictment of the forces that are trying to destroy the ideas that make America great.
—Jim DeMint, former U.S. Senator
The prescriptions outlined in Restoring America's Soul are just what the doctor ordered for the beleaguered conservative movement.
—Tom Coburn, former U.S. Senator
The true heart of conservatism is its desire to protect the principles worthy of being kept and to pursue virtue through disciplined self-governance. In Restoring Americas Soul, Dunaway refreshingly suggests an enlightened course forward for the thoughtful conservative in contemporary America.
