Every year I suggest that all Americans take some time to read a few things to refresh our memories about the founding of our country. It’s probably not a bad practice for all of you who do not live here just for the ideals.


  • The Declaration of Independence
  • The Preamble to the Constitution
  • Actually the entire Constitution
  • If not all, at least the first 10 amendments—the Bill of Rights
  • Bonus points—read The Federalist Papers

These documents are full of compromises—something that has made it last so long. And something we seem unwilling to do this past decade or so.
