The 5,000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World is the book used in the RINO Hunt class on the Constitution of the United States. It is the book President Ronald Reagan wanted taught in all high schools. It is the book that lists and explains in the words of the Founders, the 28 principles of Freedom our Founding Fathers said must be understood and perpetuated by every people who desire peace, prosperity, and freedom. It also teaches how adherence to these beliefs during the past 200 years has brought about more progress than was made in the previous 5,000 years.

This is what Earl Taylor; Jr., high school teacher and principal in Mesa, Arizona, had to say about this incredible book:

“As a high school teacher of American Government, I have thrilled to observe the reaction of students when exposed to these founding principles. They have a much better understanding of the political world they are being thrust into; they can make decisions about real life situations based on correct principles; and they are much better prepared to enter college and bring political truth to college classrooms. Many of my graduated students have returned to thank me for teaching them the foundational principles contained in this book. Perhaps this book’s motto should be: “Don’t leave high school without it.”

Glenn Beck recommends the book over all others, including his.

“It is the principle,” said Beck. “It is so easy to read. It’s the book Ronald Reagan wanted taught in high schools, and Ted Kennedy stopped it from happening. That should tell you all you need to know… When you read these principles, your mouth will fall open. The scales will fall off your eyes on who we are.  It will help you understand American free enterprise. You’ll be able to defend it. You’ll be able to know what makes it possible for 6 percent of humanity living under our free economy to produce one-half of the Earth’s developed wealth every single year.”

The author is W. Cleon Skousen (1913-2006.). Skousen’s book, The 5,000 Year Leap, is dedicated to:

“That generation of resolute Americans whom we call the Founding Fathers. They created the first free people to survive as a nation in modern times. They wrote a new kind of Constitution which is now the oldest in existence. They built a new kind of commonwealth designed as a model for the whole human race. They believed it was thoroughly possible to create a new kind of civilization, giving freedom, equality, and justice to all. Their first design for a free-people nation was to encompass all North America, accommodating, as John Adams said, two to three hundred million free men. They created a new cultural climate that gave wind to the human spirit. They encouraged exploration to reveal the scientific secrets of the universe. They built a free-enterprise culture to encourage industry and prosperity. They gave humanity the needed ingredients for a gigantic 5,000-year leap.”

W. Cleon Skousen, the author of The 5,000 Year Leap was founder, president and chairman of the board of the National Center for Constitutional Studies. His background includes 16 years with the FBI, 4 years as Chief of Police of Salt Lake City, 17 years as editorial director of the nation’s leading police magazine, and 13 years as a university professor. He authored 23 books including 6 college texts, and a national best seller, The Naked Communist.
