Raising An American Patriot - Home How to Raise An American Patriot

“We are in a time when going back to these fundamental claims that are 
made in the American Revolution and evaluating those again and seeing 
the truth or the merit of the claim is the key to restoring patriotism.” 
            – Dr. Larry Arnn “How to Raise an American Patriot”

“To be a patriot, you have to have some component of faith. The 
quintessential core belief of American patriotism, the cornerstone, 
is the belief that we were destined to be the ‘shining city on the hill.’ 
You’ve got to have a faith component to really believe that.” 
– Erick Erickson, “How to Raise an American Patriot”

                                            Parents are the number one people to teach this to their kids. This historic book will give parents the talking points they need to teach                                             their kids why it’s good to love our country and understand why it’s so important to fight for our freedom and their rights. We will lay                                                     the foundation for our next “greatest” generation.

I interviewed 13 American patriots, all with different backgrounds and upbringings - several you have heard of and several you haven't heard of but you should. 

Ed Meese, former Attorney General and staff member under President Reagan, retired colonel and current chairman of public policy at The Heritage Foundation.
Jackie Gingrich Cushman, syndicated columnist, daughter of Newt Gingrich, and author of "The Essential American.
Erick Erickson, former managing editor of RedState.com, radio host, CNN contributor and author of the current best-seller “Red State Uprising.
Rachel Campos-Duffy, FOXNews contributor, author, wife of Congressman Sean Duffy from Wisconsin and mother of 8.
Kevin Jackson, "The Black Sphere," radio host, political pundit, blogger, author, and FOXNews contributor.
Debbie Lee, Gold Star mom and founder of America’s Mighty Warriors, a troop-support organization, also a speaker for the Tea Party Express.
Reverend Steven Craft, pastor, author, former prison chaplain and national speaker for the John Birch Society.
Charlie Rhoads, former military officer, CEO of Joe Foss Institute teaching patriotism and providing scholarships, and board member of America’s Mighty Warriors.
Rick Green, former Texas legislator, author and national speaker for Wallbuilders, an organization dedicated to educating America about its founding.
Cathy Gillespie, political and philanthropic activist, co-founder of Constituting America, wife of candidate for the Governor of Virginia, Ed Gillespie.
Janine Turner, actress, author, speaker, founder of Constituting America, activist and radio talk show host.
Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, the premier educational institute for constitutional principles which publishes Imprimis, the monthly newsletter with 1.8 million in circulation.
Seth Swirsky, award-winning songwriter, singer, artist, film maker and musician living in the heart of Beverly Hills and raising proud patriotic children despite that.

Here are the questions  I used during each interview to hear about the subject's childhood, how they raised or are raising their children, and what they think parents can do to raise their own little patriots.
