In the Preamble of our Constitution, our Founding Fathers stated one of its purposes as being to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. Have you felt lately that the Blessings of Liberty are slipping away from ourselves and our Posterity?

This book was written as a primer to help the reader discover the Seeds of Birth of our Constitutional Republic. It briefly outlines how we became a Constitutional Republic and the elements of Liberty placed in our Constitution by our Founding Fathers. It then helps the reader discover the Seeds of Destruction that have and are conspiring to deny those Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.

If you have a love for our Republic and would like to have a fundamental understanding of these topics, this is the book for you. As the reader becomes familiar with the basic knowledge within these pages, they will be able to recognize the perils that confront We the People as a nation. With this knowledge the reader will then be able to join in the effort to preserve the American Dream for succeeding generations.

May God Bless and Save the United States of America!

Excellent book giving comprehensive overview of history of our Constitutional Republic: its founding and most recent 100-year period of decline. Emphasis need for Americans to be moral and religious for our system to work.
A book that should be taught in our colleges and high school; indeed one all concerned citizens should read if we are not to lose those freedoms won by the Founders.

About the author (2011)

William J. “Will” Dell is an ardent patriot and a retired Navy Master Chief who served his nation for 25 years during the Viet Nam era. He has made a concerted study of the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, and the history of our Constitutional Republic for the past 50 years. He has three imperatives in his life: God - Family - Country. He make no apology for his Christian faith. He knows beyond any shadow of doubt that God raised up our Founding Fathers to establish our Constitutional Republic to be a beacon of freedom to the world. He is a strict Constitutionalist as it was interpreted for the first 150 years of our history. He believes that it is the responsibility of We the People, as individuals and as a nation, to be vigilant in the preservation of our Constitutional Republic, our Judeo-Christian heritage, and the unalienable rights each of us received from God to Life, Liberty, and Property.

Will is editor and publisher of the Freedom-Fighters Forum which is an educational effort to save our Constitutional Republic from its slide toward a Welfare Socialist State. He is also a commentator weekly at the Dialog East Coast West Coast virtual roundtable discussing national and economic security issues on BlogTalkRadio. His purpose is to provide understanding of our times on issues related to this effort for his extended family and other interested parties.

Will published the Patriarchal Advocate, a direct mail effort, from 1992 - 1995 and Light for the Journey, an e-mail effort, from 2004 - 2008. Will launched the Freedom-Fighters Forum [www.freedom-fightersforum.org] in 2009 at the request of his following to enable them to have on-line access to past and present opines. He may be reached at ff-forum@msn.com.

Will is an enthusiastic family history buff. He has discovered direct ancestors on his family tree who have served in every major conflict our nation has been in since the Revolutionary War. A family tradition that has now extended two more generations as sons-in-law, a daughter, and grandchildren have donned the uniform of their country in defense of liberty.

Throughout his naval career, Will traveled around the world and lived in both Europe and Asia. He has also traveled extensively within the United States having visited museums, libraries, and historical sites in 48 of the 50 states. Will has a degree in business information systems and has taught operation and maintenance of real-time flight simulators to engineers and scientists at a number of major defense corporations and several universities.

Will volunteered for more than 20 years with Boy Scouts of America serving, both boys and adults, in many capacities. He is a life member of both the Disabled American Veterans and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Will is retired and makes his home with his wife, Fran, in Nebraska when they are not traveling, doing family history research, or visiting their children and grandchildren.
