"It ainâ€™t so much the things we donâ€™t know that get us into trouble," nineteenth-century humorist Josh Billings remarked. "Itâ€™s the things we know that just ainâ€™t so."In this bold New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author and talk-radio host Michael Medved zeroes in on ten of the biggest fallacies that millions of Americans believe about our countryâ€“in spite of incontrovertible evidence to the contrary. The Big Lies exposed and dissected include:â€˘ America was founded on genocide against Native Americans.â€˘ The United States is uniquely guilty for the crime of slavery and built its wealth on stolen African labor.â€˘ Aggressive governmental programs offer the only remedy for economic downturns and poverty.â€˘ The Founders intended a secular, not Christian, nation.Each of the ten lies is a grotesque, propagandistic misrepresentation of the historical record. Medvedâ€™s witty, well-documented rebuttal supplies the ammunition necessary to fire back the next time somebody tries to recycle destructive distortions about our nation.
