Rick Perry: Man of the Hour is about how an individual politician rose up to present an Americana approach to running for president. His trademark phrase was, "I'll work every day to try to make Washington, D.C., as inconsequential in your lives as I can." This political philosophy derives from a long tradition - of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Justice William Douglas, and yes, Henry David Thoreau, in trying to get government off the people's back. This led to the Bill of Rights, to protect the people from the government. Rick Perry has arisen as an antidote to big government advocates. Is he right or is he wrong? That is up to individuals. But what is clear is that this has just become an exciting presidential race focused on American values. We will be releasing monthly ebooks and audiobooks on this ongoing drama of democracy at work. As Winston Churchill said, "Democracy is unseemly and messy; but it is the best we can do. In fact, it is the best the world can do." That is enough for us.
