The Embattled Vote in America - From the Founding to the Present
 
An alarming, important, perhaps even essential book. A noted authority on the history of American voting returns with a disturbing account of American political leaders who have, since the beginning of the republic, worked to limit the franchise.

Americans have fought and died for the right to vote. Yet the world’s oldest continuously operating democracy guarantees no one, not even citizens, the opportunity to elect a government. In this rousing work, the best-selling author of The Case for Impeachment calls attention to the founders’ crucial error: leaving the franchise to the discretion of individual states.

The Living Word
Psalm 44: 1-3

King James Version

1: We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

2: How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

3: For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them. •
