A new view of the Declaration that shows that America is not in decline; it is stronger than ever— and each one of us plays a part in its progress.

Kermit is a professor of constitutional law at The University of Pennsylvania, an award winning author, a former clerk for Supreme Court Justice David Souter, and the great-great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt. Hailed as one of today's most distinctive voices in the public forum, he offers an inspring perspective that prompts up to re-think who we are as individuals and as a nation; how we can be a more united country; and how each individual voice in a democracy can shape the character of America.
