History teaches us that without a firm Rule of Law, which was overturned in the recent Detroit Bailout, America cannot lay down a foundation for genuine prosperity. Further, the defense of the right to private property is the most sure predictor of economic success. Again, with tax rates rising faster against the wealthiest, a disparity has arisen which can only harm our markets. Therefore, we must write and call our Representatives, Senators and the White House and demand a return to the only sure foundation to economic prosperity—before the American Dream disappears forever.

But what factors allowed America’s stunning growth in economic power in such a short period of time? This economic success was driven by a firm Rule of Law regime which supported the Constitution’s unique defense of private property.
