More About The 10 Big Lies about America by Michael Medved
 
 
 
Overview
-It ain't so much the things we don't know that get us into trouble, - nineteenth-century humorist Josh Billings remarked. -It's the things we know that just ain't so.-

In this bold New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author and talk-radio host Michael Medved zeroes in on ten of the biggest fallacies that millions of Americans believe about our country-in spite of incontrovertible evidence to the contrary.
The Big Lies exposed and dissected include:
- America was founded on genocide against Native Americans.
- The United States is uniquely guilty for the crime of slavery and built its wealth on stolen African labor.
- Aggressive governmental programs offer the only remedy for economic downturns and poverty.
- The Founders intended a secular, not Christian, nation.
Each of the ten lies is a grotesque, propagandistic misrepresentation of the historical record. Medved's witty, well-documented rebuttal supplies the ammunition necessary to fire back the next time somebody tries to recycle destructive distortions about our nation.
