Be there any books you have read, in the time period all the above covers, that you have not or would not put on this list for any reason?


Why would I add a book to my library I do not think should in the Library? What is this, paradox day at the Paradise?

I was listening a few days ago and heard a clip from Fahrenheit 451. Sounded like Burgess Meredith.. Was this from an audio book?


It’s an episode of the twilight zone called…”Obsolete Man.” Youtube has it

Hello Mr. Church,

I remember you speaking of how it can be argued George Washington is possibly the greatest man of the last millennia. I really took that to heart and wanted to read about him, but looking at your selection of books there is nothing about him there. I have looked on Amazon and there are multiple selections available, but would prefer to have your opinion on which you would advise. Thank you in advance.


David Hackett Fischer’s “Washington’s Crossing” is one of the best books written about 1776 and Washington’s campaign. Keep your distance from Joseph Ellis books. You should also give Henry Cabot Lodge’s “American Statesman-George Washington” a go, it can be read free, online. This book is edited by John T MOrse who edited the “American Statesman” series for Houghton-Mifflin in the late 1890’s. Their book on Patrick Henry is the best Henry bio ever written (IMHO).

what is the name of the austrailian comedy team i heard on your show friday?


Clark and Dawes


Greetings, Mike. Here’s a book that you’ve mentioned on your program that’s not on this page yet: “Is Davis A Traitor, Or Was Secession a Constitutional Right Previous to the War” by Albert Taylor Bledsoe –



Hey mike what is the name of the author you had on about a year ago, he was explaining jeffersons views on the states breaking up continually after reaching a population limit and rejoining the union?
Your show is fantastic thank you for all you do to edumacate the masses 🙂


Probably Donald Livingston author of “Rethinking the America Union” available in the Founders Tradin’ Post, autographed by the author!


Ed Leedskalnin Said It
Three Quarters of a Century Ago

Nearly everybody knows Ed Leedskalnin was the man who built Florida’s Coral Castle. Some are also aware of a book that he has written called A Book in Every Home, but few have actually read it.

Much of it is rather humdrum, but one little portion reproduced below is very pertinent to our national situation today. Please read it and pass it along.


“Government to be lasting will have to be just. This means it will have to protect all the property alike and all the property will have to pay equal taxes, which means big property, big taxes, and small property, small taxes. Government cannot exist without taxes so only those who pay taxes should vote and vote according to the taxes they pay.
By voting, the voters dictate the state’s destiny for times to come and then to allow such a weak influence to guide the state, it is not wise and so you see one should vote according to how he is carrying the State’s burden.
Another unwise thing about equal voting is that it gives the loafers and weaklings the power to take the property away from producers and stronger people, and then another unjust thing about equal voting is that it gives the loafers and weaklings the power to demand an easy life from the producers and leaders.
Self respecting producers will not stand such an injustice for long. It is not the producers’ fault when one is too weak to make his own living. The producer’s life is just as sweet as the weaklings and loafers life is
to them.
Fifty per cent of the people don’t want to lead, they want to follow. They want somebody else to furnish the money for their living expenses and as long as such a condition exists, they are not equal with their leaders.
It is not sound to allow the weaklings to vote. Any one who is too weak to make his own living is not strong enough to vote, because their weak influence weakens the state and a degenerated state cannot exist very long…. ”

You have recommended a book about a father passing on advice to his son(s). Would you please respond with the title and author? I have a 5 yr old, a 2 yr old, and another on the way, and as I put together thoughts to pass along to them I would like some good references. I appreciate your commentary on restoring the Christian Gentleman, and hopefully I can do my part.
Thanks! – Daniel in TN


You are referring to The Earl of Chesterfield’s “Letters to his Son” many of which are posted on this website.


Mike, what is the name of the Author and the book you mentioned while discussing “community” this morning? Thanks!


His name is Robert Nisbet, the book is “The Loss of Community” and is in the library section here on the site. Here is a transcript of that show segment.


Mike, I am trying to find that book you read from this moring and it is not in your library. What is the name of it again?


It IS in the library, in the NEW “War of Northern Aggression” section! “Political Crisis of the 1850s”.

Pat Pozanc

Greetings Mike. I am looking for books regarding the constitution that are geared for middle school children. I can find these available on Amazon’s website, but I am unsure about the author’s background. I consider myself to have a libertarian, conservative train of thought, and the last thing I want are my children reading text that was written with a leftist background. Would you have any suggestions? Thank you for your time.

Pat Pozanc.


Start with Kevin Gutzman’s “Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution” in the library right here!


I would add Frank Chodorov. One of my favs.


Total novice to the “r” . Love your show!!
What book would you recommend I read first?


That is a very good question, to answer in confidence requires a knowledge of what you have already read. Generally speaking start with some really good source material history: Mercy Otis Warren “History of the Rise and termination of the American Revolution”. Hugh Blair Grigsby has similar offerings in his chronicle of the VA ratification debate. If you want a study guide, I always recommend Kevin Gutzman’s “Politically Incorrect Guide To The Constitution”. Check the library link at the top of this page for all these selections!


Thank you very much for the reply.
I looked up the titles you mentioned.
Very, very interesting. I have some work ahead of me!!

Barry W. Smith

Mike, do you have anymore books about Thomas Jefferson that you could recommend? Thanks for the education.


Thomas Mayer’s “Constitutional Thought of Thomas Jefferson” is on the library page, try that one, I rather like it!

Wil Shrader Jr.

Can someone recommend books about or by Patrick Henry?


Please visit the “Library” at for Kevin Hayes’ “Mind of a Patriot, Patrick Henry & the World of Ideas”.


Bill and I were just talking about where you get your information…Now We Have It!! Spreading it around on FB…
Thanks Mike!!!!!!!!


I have a few of these books in my libary. I have some reading to do – now it has more meaning thanks to your show. Could you add some books that our founders may have read and studied here for us?




Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
