In Search of an American Citizen
America was built on the notion of possibility and growth rather than to become a static government that falls into tyranny and turns citizens into subjects.

The meaning of American citizenship has been eroding for quite some time. American globalists—an oxymoron if there ever was one—have been taking pointers from the playbook of the European Union and its power station, the World Economic Forum. Arguments for open borders, against national sovereignty, as well as erasure of human differences under the guise of fake multiculturalism diminish the nation-state. Ideology has taken over and seeped into public policy.

In his book, The United States in Crisis: Citizenship, Immigration, and the Nation State, Edward J. Erler probes the philosophical and legal questions about American citizenship. The idea of global government is continuously imposed on sovereign nations, especially the United States since it is one of the most powerful nations in the world. Erler moves through several fundamental aspects of citizenship—sovereignty, birthright, and the needs of a functioning society—deftly and effortlessly. In particular, his contribution to the legal questions of American citizenship, particularly birthright citizenship, will be of great interest not only to constitutional scholars but also to a broader audience deliberately kept in the dark about legal and constitutional precedents.

One of things that made Donald Trump widely popular is that he appealed to people’s commonalities as Americans. While Democrats sought (and still do) to divide people along the ideological lines that are based in hatred of American foundational principles, Trump presented not only a love for America but described it as a place where every person should be able to succeed and realize his or her potential. During his campaign and presidency, Trump was always focused on that one aspect of life—our potential to realize a better life with the gifts that we have been given, and having the freedom to do so.
