Who Are Our “New Founding Fathers?” (Audio)
Who are the nation's new founding fathers?
If our nation's original Founding Fathers were around today, what would they think of the United States?
Fox News political analyst Juan Williams asks, and (in his opinion) answers, those questions in his new book We The People: The Modern-Day Figures Who Have Reshaped and Affirmed the Founding Fathers' Vision of America.
Williams spoke with KPEL's Rob Kirkpatrick and Bernadette Lee about his latest work published by Penguin Random House.
He said his inspiration to write We The People came from witnessing the dynamics that are driving the 2016 presidential election.
Williams visits ideas about income equality and immigration-- and other issues current candidates are discussing-- by giving in-depth profiles of presidents and policy makers who championed them in the past.
Here is some critical acclaim for We The People from Fox News contemporaries in Washington, D.C.:
For Americans who want an informed view of the great debate, there is no better book than We the People.
-- Bill O'Reilly, Anchor, Fox News Channel
In a Washington boiling with anger, some of it real and some of it synthetic, Juan Williams is a rarity.
-- George F. Will, Pulitzer Prize-winning political analyst
We The People: The Modern-Day Figures Who Have Reshaped and Affirmed the Founding Fathers' Vision of America is available at bookstores and online.
