The remedy to Antinationalism as explained in David Barton’s book, “Jefferson Lies.”
The remedy for Antinationalism begins with acknowledging that America actually is unique and that its prosperity, freedom, and stability did not occur by accident but were the consequence of both our ancestors’ commitment to certain ideas and God’s Providence. With respect to the former, it is worth taking the time to identify the specific ideas that produced the positive results we have so long enjoyed.

Many of these ideas are brilliantly encapsulated in the 155 words drafted by Jefferson at the beginning of the Declaration, including the affirmation of our official national belief that:
(1) there is a Creator;
(2) the Creator gives certain inalienable rights to every individual;
(3) government exists primarily to secure these inalienable rights to every individual;
(4) there is a fixed and absolute moral law (“ the laws of nature and of nature’s God”);
(5) below the level of inalienable rights and fixed moral law, decisions are made by the majority – i.e., by “the consent of the governed”;
and (6) if government does not secure these previous five elements, then the people have a right to alter or change their government. Of course, these six principles are universal and apply to all people, not just Americans; and far too many individuals across the world do not enjoy these rights or experience the exercise of these principles that were implemented in America. As Jefferson observed, “the comparisons of our governments with those of Europe are like a comparison of heaven and hell,”

There are always outside influences that you feel you simply cannot control. It is how one reacts to these circumstances that determine the final outcome. It is these choices that determine our success or failure. Everything happens for a reason and seemingly on a physical level we don’t seem to be able to control our reality, however on some subconscious level, we choose to participate in every single event that comes our way. We may not be aware of it, but that is how the universe works.
