A Book Discussion on "Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans"

Describing our national debt as a “survival-level threat to the America we have known,” Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is nonetheless hopeful that its citizens can rise to meet the challenge:

“I urge great care not to drift into a loss of faith in the American people. We must never yield to the self-fulfilling despair that these problems are immutable, or insurmountable. Americans are still a people born to liberty. Addressed as free-born, autonomous men and women of God-given dignity, they will rise yet again to drive back a mortal enemy.”

This is the message of Governor Daniels’ new book, Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans, which was the focus of a panel discussion on September 26th.
