These “new founders,” with Washington’s help, embark on a fight to return our country to the beliefs and values of our founders. What follows is a fast-paced race to re-elect George Washington, in the guise of Frank Walters, as president of the United States. There are funny moments as the eighteenth century Washington comes to grips with twenty-first century technology. (My favorite is one of the simplest – a hot shower at the turn of a knob.) There are also infuriating moments, for me at least, when these “new founders” seem to be falling into the worst aspects of modern politics, both liberal and conservative.
I want to recommend this book to anyone who is a student of American history and/or government, no matter their political philosophy. In any case, I believe it will give one much to think about.
If you are trying to decide about giving the book a try, check out the authors’ web site. Under the Media and Archive section scroll down almost to the bottom to the “Fox and Friends” interview. it will give you a quick look at what the book is about.
