Donald Devine- Founder of the American conservative movement and former Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management under President Reagan- says it has.
In part I of the “America’s Way Back” podcast series, Devine explains that the real problem of government today is not the structure that our founders built for us, but the fact that we’re trying to do too much with it.
The government now is too bureaucratic, too centralized, and we have too much debt- we’re at the end of the rope! We need to send the power back to localities- states, cities, and towns; that’s what the founders had in mind when crafting the Constitution.
Devine’s newest book titled, America’s Way Back, is all about how we got into the mess we’re in, and how we can get out. In a nutshell, we got into this mess via the progressive movement in the early 20th Century (which turned us away from the Constitution), and by turning back to the Constitution, we can clean up the mess we’ve made.
Devine’s book introduces readers to five prominent intellectuals; the first being Woodrow Wilson, which Devine calls “the most important American since the founding fathers.”
