Americans agree overwhelmingly with and take vigorous pride in a limited number of familiar, cogent propositions inherited from our Revolutionary/founding era that perennially characterize the idea base defining our country and comprising the tenets of the unofficial American national creed often referred to. Troublesome Country presents an unflinching evaluation of America’s history witnessing a generation after generation stupendous failure to practice our sterling ideals. Instead, we have routinely done the opposite. This challenging measuring-standard book contends that the cure for our now-conspicuous national decay lies in our citizens en masse beginning to deliberately live up to our vociferously-professed ideals, and seriously holding to account our governing bodies and institutions as well, to truly serve and represent our deeply-held ideals. Defined in shorthand, these de facto tenets of our national creed are: popular rule (democracy), freedom, equality, justice, and independence.
