One of the early lines in the movie Braveheart says: “History is written by those who have hung heroes.” Mike Church has set about to remedy that problem and he does it with aplomb…and a good bit of humor too.
In his most recent production, What Lincoln Killed, Mike explores the all-but-lost concept of federalism. But unlike many modern productions which start off with an agenda and end with a pre-determined outcome, Mike really does research, speaks with experts and, rarity of rarities, actually proves his points with words from the mouths of our Founding Fathers.
His analysis is so fundamental that if asked, “What’s wrong with America?” he would likely respond, “America is not a thing. The united States are!” This is a different sort of quest, the only right kind, a sincere and thorough search for the truth no matter where it lands. Then he goes even further, taking on the task as a personal crusade, a personal mission, to leave the world a better place than he found it for his family and his countrymen.
Toward the end of What Lincoln Killed, Mike laments that our generation has failed in that mission to pass on something better than what we received. His words ring true and his emotion is plainly not acted. I was moved by his cries of desperation to save this country…and believe that you will be too. This alone was worth the price of the CD. I recommend picking one up and sharing it with your family and friends.
