Along side a true republican system of governance of, by, and for We The People, Capitalism was one of the main cornerstones in the development of this great nation. Capitalism is directly responsible for the creation of the most powerful economic engine and middle class this planet has ever seen throughout all of human history.
Pure capitalism is the antithesis of the scourge we suffer today in America … Corporatism. Whereas Capitalism is based on innovation, dedication and unfettered competition, Corporatism is the destruction of competition through the control and monopoly of innovation, goods and services by powerful and government connected mega corporation resulting in the elimination of competition and a majority of the smaller less influential entities trying to compete on a rigged playing field.
A short while ago I had the privilege of talking to a father and daughter team who authored a new book “Our Best Tomorrow Students Teaching Capitalism to-America”. I learned from this very intelligent young lady and her father a shocking truth … Capitalism, its roll in the building of the America dream, and its importance for the continued growth and inherent strength of America, is no longer taught in our schools today. This should not have been all that surprising when you realize the powerful influence exercised by mega corporations on the curriculum our young minds are exposed to on a daily basis.
When I was contacted by Robert Hudson TLB jumped at the chance to talk to, and record a show with, both him and his daughter Lauren, and the attached link is the result of a great conversation. I am both pleased and encouraged in the fact that we still have inquisitive and intelligent young Americans who can see through the haze of deceit and deception to the true issues facing this nation … through them there is indeed still hope for a great and prosperous future in America.

This New Student Book on Freedom and Capitalism, Co-Authored by a 13 Year Old Student and Her Father, Needs Liberty Community’s Support
13 year old Lauren Hudson and her father, conservative business leader Rob Hudson, have co-authored a student book on capitalism and freedom. The book helps our youth understand how to make it in America through education, hard work and making responsible decisions. During its initial month of release in December 2013, Our Best Tomorrow – Students Teaching Capitalism to America, became an Amazon #1 Hot New Release and a #1 Best Seller for Free Enterprise and Current Event books. Fox News and Fox Business News featured it on national television a dozen times.
About the book, Rob commented, “We must start by teaching individual responsibility to our next generations. If they don’t understand the wisdom of true capitalism and freedom, our middle class will likely continue to shrink. Their success, and the country’s success, hangs in the balance. Through Lauren’s fictional stories of three childhood friends, coupled with our pointers on America at its best, no child who reads the book will ever view the world quite the same again. They will see possibilities and American dreams, not big government roadblocks.”
The book has been endorsed by conservative government, business and education leaders. Conservative Host Stuart Varney of Fox Business News described it as a “bright, shining example of capitalism and the American way.” National conservative talk radio host Roger Hedgecock said “Words of wisdom. I loved the book.” John Stossel commended the book as one which he hopes can “make a difference” with our youth. Elisabeth Hasselbeck of Fox & Friends praised the book as “A great idea. It’s such a hybrid, with creativity and the history of capitalism.”
If the book succeeds on a national scale, it will have a far greater chance of finding its way into more classrooms. Please look the book up FaceBoob or on Amazon at:

We can change this country, one student at a time … But we can’t do it without your help.
