Sen. Mike Lee shares some stories of “The Forgotten Founders,” with E.K.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) talked to Erik Kuselias about some of history’s forgotten founders

Sen. Mike Lee (R- Utah) was the special guest on The Erik Kuselias Show, the two spoke about his new book “Written Out of History: The Forgotten Founders Who Fought Big Government.” The they had a very good discussion about some of the characters in the book.

Kuselias liked to call the people that Sen. Lee listed in the book “Some of the best players in history that you never heard about.” He talked to Sen. Lee about what he learned in doing the book and how that affected him.

There were a number of founders that played a very important role in helping to forge how our country was put together. Lee pointed out that these were not just white males, who help to shape what kind of country we were building but both women and minorities.

Lee gave a number of interesting examples of countless people who had a powerful impact on how our country was formed but don’t seem to show up in many history books. In a number of interviews, including today with Kuselias stressed a couple of key points.

“It’s very important for parents to emphasize to their children at a young age that that’s the whole reason why we have a Constitution, is to limit the power of government,” Lee said. “Those limits need to mean something, but they can only be meaningful if we recognize them, enforce them and talk about them.”

“If we can come to grips with their warnings now, we can reverse a lot of the damage that’s been done within our constitutional system,” Sen. Lee said. “But in order to do that, you first have to change people’s awareness and understanding of it. To do that, you have to tell the stories, and that’s why I wrote this book.”
