Has America Achieved the Vision of Freedom as Set Forth by its Founders?
According to John McManus “It wasn’t what government did that made America great; it was what government was prevented from doing that made the difference.”

APPLETON, WIS. – June 16, 2011—While preparing to usher in another Independence Day, more Americans are asking if the country has achieved the vision of freedom as set forth by our founders.  Has it achieved the vision of providing for its people or is it trying to achieve a hands-off approach and leave prosperity to the individual?

John F. McManus, president of The John Birch Society, suggests that before Americans answer the question, they understand what our founders gave us to better measure our progress.  His DVD, Overview of America, offers a basic lesson of what the founders provided us, including sections on government systems, basic economics and timeless moral principles.

According to John McManus “It wasn’t what government did that made America great; it was what government was prevented from doing that made the difference.”

Viewers will clearly see the early foundations of America and what has brought the country to our current status. McManus adapted this DVD from a presentation that he has delivered to groups across the country for 40 years.  He is available for interviews.  Copies of the DVD are available for review.

McManus is the publisher of The New American magazine and is also a regular contributor of articles to the magazine.  He has not only written and produced many audiovisual programs, but has also written numerous books and is in high demand as a speaker.

Founded in 1958 and headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, The John Birch Society is dedicated to restoring and preserving freedom under the U.S. Constitution.  Members come from all walks of life and are active throughout the 50 states on local, regional and national issues.  United by a strong belief in personal freedom and limited government, members work to achieve the mission of the organization: to bring about less government, more responsibility, and — with God’s help — a better world by providing leadership, education, and organized volunteer action in accordance with moral and Constitutional principles.  Visit JBS.org for more information.
