David Barton scores another one for the Christian Patriot in this 540 page expose' of how the highest court in the land - the United States Supreme Court - has reinterpreted the Constitution diluting the Biblical foundations upon which it was based.
FROM THE BACK COVER
"The fundamental principle of our Constitution enjoins that the will of the majority shall prevail." - George Washington
In their own words the Supreme Court has become "a national theology board" "a super board of education" and amateur psychologists on a""psycho-journey." The result has been a virtual rewriting of the liberties enumerated in the Constitution.
A direct victim of this judicial micromanagement has been the religious aspect of the First Amendment. For example the Court now interprets that Amendment under:
a "Lemon Test" absurdly requiring religious expression to be secular an "Endorsement Test" pursuing an impossible neutrality between religion and secularism and a "Psychological Coercion Test" allowing a single dissenter to silence an entire community's religious expression.
Additional casualties of judicial activism have included protections for State's rights local controls separation powers legislative supremacy and numerous other constitutional provisions. Why did earlier Courts protect these powers for generations and what has caused their erosion by contemporary Courts?
Original Intent answers these questions. By relying on thousands of primary sources Original Intent documents (in the Founding Father's own words) not only the plan for limited government originally set forth in the Constitution and Bill of Rights but how that vision can once again become reality.

This book and dissertation, "ORIGINAL INTENT," by David Barton, is the most comprehensive analysis of the intents of our forefathers for this great nation. As a minister I have found that the information found therein is most needed today. Especially in this year of 2020-2021 when the Fabianist's, Marxists, collectivists, Bolshevist's, socialists, and communists enemies within this great nation that are working to destroy the principles of a morality and Christian living and the foundation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness rights given by God. It is my prayer that this book gets into the hands of our youth today so they will understand what our nation is all about and its freedoms, liberty, and justice is really about.
Freedom is not free; it cost our many of our forefathers their lives and fortunes. May we be of like mind. It must be kept by vigilant and brave persons 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and every year and decades. Thank God Almighty for a man like David Barton to write this dissertation. God Bless David Barton and the USA.
Now to get this information into the hands of the American people.
