Reading history as a story about an individual who selflessly dedicated his life to make us a free nation was just the medicine I needed after the indigestion left from last presidential election. This kind of character is too rare these days and the more the electorate reads about true patriots the more we will not settle for politicians who pretend to be patriots. Character is everything.
George Washington was chosen and protected because he chose to stay true to correct principles. What a contrast with today's politicians.
Ron's reading was superb.
I was inspired.
Please find more inspiring characters in American history and right about them. We need to see what made this country great so we can see the threats to our freedom and stability.
Gifted narcisist politician
I have not read Killing Lincoln, but I imagine they are comparable as political history, but different as to the character of the individuals
How Jackque Kennedy must have felt being married to an unfaithful husband, yet she always demonstrated poise and elegance.
I enjoyed Glenn Beck's "Being George Washington" and would recommend O'Reilly and others write books about similar inspiring characters from US history. We have so many dispicable self-serving politicians, especially in recent history. Writers need to inspire our nations's voters on the qualities of character we must demand from those we elect to guide our country. They don't need to be perfect, but the do have to have the drive to do what is write despite their own self-interests.
