Excerpt: There is a reason why America emerged to lead the world to new, previously unimagined heights of freedom and prosperity. It may have been an accident; it may have been providence.

In America, these sovereign entities agreed to surrender a measure of their individual sovereignty to a government created specifically for the purpose of protecting their individual sovereign rights and to perform certain other limited functions.
