Summary: THE FACTS. THE FUTURE. THE FIGHT TO FIX AMERICA---BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE. In the words of Harvard historian Niall Ferguson, the United States is ''an empire on the edge of chaos.'' Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because we've turned our backs on the Constitution.Yes, our country is financially broke, but that's just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has central ...show moreized power at the expense of individual rights.There is a lot of work ahead, but we can't move forward until we first understand how we got here.
