Psi U Authors
Political In writing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, our Founding Fathers established a democratic republic with a solid political basis. What they wrote was the political map that future representatives would need to follow to conduct the people’s business in an efficient and effective manner.

H. John Lyke, Ph.D, Rho '55 (University of Wisconsin) is a board-certified psychologist and professor emeritus at Metropolitan State College of Denver. In his latest book, he suggests that ever since George Washington retired as captain of our ship of state, subsequent presidents and members of Congress have chosen to pursue their own and their political parties’ self-interests rather than use the map created by the Founders.
