 BackgroundWe Hold These Truths is an edited compilation of sixteen articles written throughout a sequence of events during 2007-2008 which included the Democratic and Republican presidential primaries and former Comptroller General David M. Walker's, Fiscal Wake-Up Tour. Chapter Eight is titled "It's Official: The Crash of the U.S. Economy has Begun".
 An Overview of the BookIn addition to an underlying contention that Federal Reserve Notes are a "substandard type of money" introduced "into circulation only through a debt payable to a bank with interest", and the expressed view that "the root cause of the modern economic crisis is . . . ultimately spiritual", three other themes are especially prominent throughout the text. These include; 1) a failure by governmental leadership to uphold its constitutional obligation to U.S. citizens, 2) a recounting of instances in which credit as a public utility has been enlisted successfully in the past, and 3) its envisioned inclusion along with a national dividend as components of a proposed 'National Monetary System'.
