We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

United States Declaration of Independence

As to religion, I hold it to be the indispensable duty of all government, to protect all conscientious professors thereof, and I know of no other business which government hath to do therewith.

Common Sense, 1776

Individual Titles

Common Sense

Published anonymously in 1776, the year of the American Declaration of Independence, Paine's Common Sense became an immediate bestseller, with fifty-six editions printed in that year alone. It was this pamphlet, more than any other factor, which helped to spark off the movement that established the independence of the United States. From his experience of revolutionary politics, Paine drew those principles of fundamental human rights which, he felt, must stand no matter what excesses are committed to obtain them, and which he later formulated in his Rights of Man.

The Federalist Papers

These 85 essays, collected in one volume, were written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay from 1787-1788. Writing under the shared pen name Publius, these three American Fathers wrote to persuade the citizens of the state of New York that this new Constitution was a good idea.

An Outline of the American Economy

How labor, agriculture, small businesses, large corporations, the Federal Reserve System, and the government have interacted to produce the U.S. economic system.

An Outline of American History

How the United States has been transformed from its origins as an obscure set of colonies on the Atlantic coast a little more than 200 years ago into what one political analyst terms "the first universal nation."

The Declaration of Independence

This is the complete text of Thomas Jefferson's classic document establishing the independence of the colonies from the British.

Inaugural Addresses of the Presidents of the United States

Inaugural addresses from George Washington to Barack Hussein Obama and everyone in between are included in this resource. Each inaugural address is intended to set the tone for the subsequent administration. Now you can read these addresses and see if the goals set forth by each administration were met.

An Outline of American Government

What makes U.S. government uniquely American ... its Constitution, the separation of powers, the concept of "checks and balances," the decentralized roles of state and local governments, and a citizenry with wide opportunity to be part of it all.

The Constitution of the United States of America

The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and subsequent amendments form the basis of the government of the United States of America. All three of these foundational documents are included in this resource.
