Two central beliefs in the Declaration of Independence have greatly shaped the United States and formed it into a country that is a beacon of liberty throughout the world. The first influential belief is that there is a providential God Who presides over the affairs of this world, and the second is that God has granted man inalienable rights. Leaders like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Franklin Roosevelt, and Dwight Eisenhower have appealed to these beliefs during some of the nation's most trying and defining moments, including the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World War II. Unfortunately, these founding and sustaining visions are in danger of being lost today. This book delves into the issues that surround these beliefs, states the disastrous effects that losing these beliefs would bring, and presents solutions for a nation that is in peril due to a lack of vision. Randall DeSoto is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point with a degree in Political Science. He holds a juris doctorate from Regent University School of Law. Randy's many life experiences and travels make We Hold These Truths come to life. As a West Point cadet, he participated in battlefield tours of Normandy and Great Britain and following graduation served as an armor officer in the Army's 4th Infantry Division. He has worked on Capitol Hill, participated in a statewide political campaign, and written political articles for The Conservative Voice website. He has carefully researched all of the major locations found in the book, from Boston to Bastogne. The author can be contacted at: wehold@juno.com
