LeaderShift: Orrin Woodward & Oliver DeMille

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 2, 2013

LeaderShift: Orrin Woodward & Oliver DeMille

LeaderShift by Orrin Woodward & Oliver DeMille

As the concepts developed, I imagined discussing the Five Laws of Decline with the Founding Fathers and determining how they would have designed the Constitution had they understood the inherent dangers within the laws. Accordingly, I wrote out a proposed government to check the FLD and separate government into clearly delineated local, state, and federal issues. In my opinion, the number one failure of the founder was not to place a specific limit on taxation and deficits. If government is not limited in their ability to tax then it simply isn’t a limited government. Likewise, if politicians are not held responsible for a budget, then they are not responsible at all. Moreover, relying on “the people” to maintain intricate knowledge of all the issues simply isn’t feasible and is statements like this are pollyanna at best and hypocrisy at worst.

The local government would be responsible for all local issues and receive a set percentage of local taxpayers income, the state would receive a percent of the the state taxpayer incomes, and the federal would receive a percent from every citizen in the country. With no deductions or special deals, just a straight flat tax to fund government and the rest is kept by the hardworking Americans who earned it. Imagine localities having town meetings where local leaders meet and discuss local issues. This principle is called “expect and inspect.” Leaders must expect the best from their people, but unless they inspect the results, they will be let down. This, in a nutshell, is one of the biggest issues in our government today. We have expected too much from our politicians, but centralized everything to Washington and few citizens have the time or understanding to inspect properly.

However, local issues and local town meetings would change this greatly. It’s time to get local leaders active in local issues again. The town meetings were the American way during our formative period. In reality, no person alive is capable of running a country and a budget the size of America. The Federal government ought to be responsible for the defense of our country from internal and external foes and adjudication of disputes between states, corporations, etc. The States can ensure Federal government doesn’t extend beyond its responsibilities and address state issues with localities while the localities handle all the remaining issues at the local level. With each level checking the level above it, which ensures the expecting and inspecting process is in working order, we can hold politicians responsible for the results. Indeed, since this is what each household must do (stay within a budget, pay it bills, and fulfill its duties), why can’t our politicians handle these leadership task? In other words, does anyone else find it peculiar that we have a lower bar for our political leaders than we do our family leaders when, in truth, we ought to hold the political leaders to a higher standard?

With these concepts in hand, I sat down with Oliver DeMille, my good friend and one of the best students of the American Founders in America today. Oliver, in short, is a polymathic genius and we spent a full day in discussion on this proposal and how to communicate it to the world. After comprehending the FLD and the proposal, Oliver improved upon it and started writing a fable that captured the key principles in an entertaining way. I was blown away by the storyline and drama contained in this short (under 150 pages) book and after several revisions we knew LeaderShift was something special. Excitedly, I sent it on to Rick Wolff, the General Editor for Business Plus, and he loved it as well. Rick, one of the best editors in the industry, has turbo-charged this book through the publishing process. In fact, from meeting with Oliver to the release date is less than one year – a practically unheard of feat in publishing profession! Moreover, Business Plus is one of the most respected names (with over 50 bestsellers) in the field, publishing books by Hank Paulson, Jack Welch, Coach K, and many more. Oliver and I are honored to be included in this elite group.

Shortly before his death, historian Thomas Macaulay wrote to a friend in America, “Your republic will be fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians in the twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in the fifth, with this difference: that the Huns and Vandals will have been engendered within your own country by your own institutions.” This can and must be halted in 2013 through a LeaderShift! Arnold Toynbee, the great historian, studied every historical civilization. He believed that in the final hours before every civilization’s collapse, that leaders would emerge with proposals, that, if heeded, could halt the decline and bring much needed revitalization. It is my humble opinion that LeaderShift is such a proposal and can turnaround our country if enough people are willing to lead at the local level! America’s turnaround can be a beacon of hope and light for the remnants of liberty remaining within Western Civilization.

On April 16th, LeaderShift will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and bookstores across North America. I have never been more excited for the start of a new year than I am for 2013. I believe a turning point in the history of freedom is upon us and I plan on playing my part. Will you do the same? Oliver and I will be traveling around North America on a book signing tour on the release of the book so stay tuned for dates and locations near you. Here is an interview discussing the book and acclamations from early reviewers.

Sincerely,

Orrin Woodward

Acclaim for LeaderShift
“Woodward and DeMille have outdone themselves. This book might just be the lever that the smartest people in America use to shift America back on course. Spread the word—the revolution is coming.” — Daniel R. Castro, award-winning author of  Critical Choices that Change Lives

“Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille offer a third way out. The old ‘left-right’ arguments died with the Cold War. The spending that brought the Soviet Union to its knees is now about to sink the West. This book is a brilliant wake-up call.” — Doug Wead, former adviser to two American presidents, New York Times bestselling author

“This book rises high above partisanship with real suggestions that are deep, thought-provoking, and incredibly original. The Five Laws of Decline introduced in this book will make a significant contribution to the national discourse.” — Chris Brady, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Launching a Leadership Revolution

“This is probably one of the most important and powerful books written for the times we are in—as well as coming times. Orrin and Oliver have woven a story so compelling and so rich that it forces you to turn the next page. The underlying message with the Five Laws is so brilliantly crafted that (and I do not use this word often) this book is genius.” — Doug Firebaugh, co-founder of Home Business Radio Network

“Whether a Republican, Democrat, Independent, or Libertarian, if you are saddened by our country’s declining abundance, real hope has arrived. It happens to be in the form of a story that just might be, to our time, what Thomas Paine’s Common Sense was to his.” — Bob Burg, coauthor of The Go-Giver

“Woodward and DeMille combine their knowledge of history, philosophy, science, systems thinking, economics, and government to explain the challenges facing America from the Five Laws of Decline. This non-political book explains how to fix the government gridlock and end the political ‘smoke and mirrors’ so prominent in our society today.” — Tim Marks, bestselling author of Voyage of a Viking

“How many of us feel an inborn desire and even a sense of calling to lead in the cause to spread freedom and prosperity and yet cannot shake a sense of overwhelm, that perhaps it is too late, or the problem is too big, the solution too impossible.  LeaderShift reveals that it can be done, that it should be done. And it is clear that Orrin and Oliver  are among those who believe it shall be done.” — Jim Hillyer, MP, Canadian House of Commons

    I can’t wait for it to come out. It’s amazing to be in the presence of greatness.

  2. Terry said

    Awesome, excited to read it!

  3. I can’t wait! I’ve got goosebumps! :)

  4. steve meixner said

    I can’t wait to read this book!!!! Thanks again Orrin!!! Thanks Oliver!!!

  5. Greg Streuly said

    I need this book now! I’m sitting in my office answering discussion questions of a staff meeting today (I’m a teacher) on what we as a staff need to do to have a better prepared student body. This follows the last meeting where we watched a video called “Shift Happens”.
    It sounds like you and Oliver DeMille may have some answers.

  6. Bob Rasmussen said

    We are counting the days to the release!! I love how Orrin can take the seemingly most complex issues and break them down so we all can clearly “see” what may not have been obvious to us and how he thinks through it to provide clear direction for a solution. Combine Orrin’s leadership with Oliver’s well studied wisdom and perspective and I know this book will be just what the doctor ordered to turn this country around! Can’t wait!!!!!

  7. Tim Johnson said

    Orrin, I am chomping at the bit to read LeaderShift! Thomas Macaulay hit the nail on the head with that statement. The West has been plundered in many ways, but not yet laid to waste. God willing with the leadership you, Oliver, and the many leaders within Team & Life have demonstrated this trend will be halted. As you mentioned, the founding fathers wanted government to start on the local level with the “expect & inspect” principle and I agree that is the only way we will right ourselves. Thank you for this GREAT post!! God bless.

  8. Richard Kroll Jr. said

    Orrin… the time has come where the United States NEEDS a proposal with comprehensive, yet simple answers to our current problems! Genius is making the complex simple. I believe that LeaderShift will offer such simple and comprehensive answers!

    This will be a game changer for LIFE, the United States and the world! April 16th can’t come fast enough…

  9. Mike Schwendinger said

    I can’t wait for the book. Two of the most intelligent authors with knowledge of what needs to be done to fix our country which exceeds (in my opinion) congress and senate’s knowledge. Both men are the definition of servant leaders.

  10. Joe McGuire said

    Can’t wait for the book to come out!!!

  11. Clint Fix said

    I can’t wait for this book to come out! One of my goals after I’m free is to serve in an elected position, so I try to devour as much information on history, economics, politics, government, and character based leadership that I can. I can’t wait to dig further into your and Oliver DeMille’s thinking on policy.

  12. darrow_gail said

    Thanks Orrin for not just talking the leadership talk, but for walking the leadership walk! We can’t wait to get this book in our hands and in the hands of our community!

  13. I wil be purchasing 2 of these, 1 for me and one for my local congressman!

    • Adam Rossman said

      Great thinking! What do you guys think would happen if everyone not only read this book, but passed a copy on to someone in our community that has a leadership role?

      Who would you pass your first copy to?

  14. Joanne Brandtjen said

    April 16th 2013 cannot come quick enough! So excited for the most important book of our time!

  15. Jill Heller said

    I am really Stoked and cannot wait for this book to come out Orrin and Oliver have taken on the most difficult problem our nation faces today and the reality is….. We as a whole nation of people cannot afford to waste another minute as we have in the past to just sit around and not do something about our big government taking more and more of our money but not paying off towards the debt that is owed!
    People in the nation have to know and law makers that the time has come for us to change government ways now!
    Thanks a Million Orrin and Oliver!! :-)

  16. I for one cannot wait for it’s release!!!!! Fired up!!!

  17. Elaine Mallios said

    I am pre-ordering my copy now. Maybe 10. This is crucial to our work. I just re-read the FLD piece you did. Right on! Great job Orrin.

  18. Our country is going broke rapidly now and things like this book will be the way to turn it around. God Bless

This, in a nutshell, is one of the biggest issues in our government today. We have expected too much from our politicians, but centralized everything to Washington and few citizens have the time or understanding to inspect properly.” Wow. I love how you can articulate what seems overpowering and hard to explain in a clear, simple, and understandable way.
    Cannot get my hands on this book fast enough!! Thanks for everything you do!

    • Lisa Mangold said

      I too can’t wait for the release of this new book – “Leadershift”. I am thrilled that you partnered with Oliver DeMille. You complement each other’s knowledge of history and passion for freedom. It is destined to be a great read!

      Blessings,
      Lisa

    Orrin,
    I’m in a unique situation to watch an example of local government and responsibility. I work for a fire district which has 3 elected officials that are responsible for all expenditures that are funded by local tax dollars. Over the past few years I have watched as public accountability has increased by posting everything on line and in the local papers (to the dismay of a lot of people) from our salaries to the cost of a new fire truck. Everyone is informed in our community about what we are spending their money on and have an open forum every week or two to publicly address any concerns or criticisms they may have about the way their local fire department is being managed. A lot of other municipalities run this way, but I don’t find the openness or the local concern in a lot of places. Thank you to you and Oliver for writing simple to understand books and articles that can educate people that this is an easy and effective system for watching where your tax dollars are being spent.

    I’m really excited Orrin!! Our Pastor was just talking about how our society has falling so far off track. And that he wasn’t sure what was going to help take our country back to the principles it was based on, but that we needed to stand strong to our christian principles and be ready to that God use you to do this, even if it seems uncomfortable….It gave me goose bumps to know that we are following men like you, Chris Brady & the rest of the PC, who have been uncomfortable many times for the greater purpose!!!
    I’m really excited about LeaderShift and how it’s going to teach people things they didn’t know, they didn’t know…. like myself before I started following you & Chris Brady.
    Thank you for the time and research you and Oliver DeMille did for this book! I can’t wait to read it!!!!

  22. Michael Hartmann said

    I cannot wait to get my copy and begin sharing it with all those I care about as soon as possible!

  23. Absolutely cannot wait to read.

  24. Mark Mester said

    Interesting date as the 16th is tax day. A coincidence…I think not. Looking forward to reading the book. :)

  25. M & L Parr said

    Orrin….. Thomas Paine once said…..” What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything it’s value. Heaven knows how to put a price upon it’s goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”
    We thank God that leaders like yourself and Oliver have recognized the price paid for our freedoms, and have not ” esteemed them lightly”. We can’t wait, to not only read about, but to come along side and fight for the resurgence of freedom in our time.
    Thank you and Gods speed.

    • Steve Leurquin said

      Right with you on that one George!

      • J & P Harteis said

        That’s for sure! You said what we were feeling, exactly, George!! How appropriate that this is coming out the day after “tax day”!! Folks, by then, “should” especially have a desperate hunger for this information! Thanks so much, Orrin & Oliver! In the meantime, we need to create the hunger for changing our culture — if not us, who?

Both of you have already put out so much inspirational and powerful leadership material, and having the privilege to be in attendance at events where you were both speaking on the same stage makes the anticipation of this release even greater. Thank You to Business Plus for putting it together so quickly!

    I am sooooo excited about this book. Australia needs Team, Life and this book. Time is running out. We have a critical election this year. I love your blogs and the history from George and Chris as well. Thank you all for your vision, hard work and dedication.

  37. What a testimony to having a dream and working at it until it becomes reality! Who could have seen all the twists and turns that has brought you and the LIFE company to this very moment in time. Only an all knowing God could fashion a story so amazing. So excited for what this book and your leadership will do to influence a turn around of our nation. Thank you for your hours of research and dedication to such a worthy cause!

  38. Looking forward to getting my hands on this book. I love the work of Orrin and Oliver separately. I can only imagine the synergy built on this collaboration. Looks like a real game-changer.

  39. John Graff said

    Orrin,
    From the culmination of LLR to Leadership & liberty to Resolved, combined with The coming Aristocracy to 1913…. This is bound to make the reader think (and re-think) how “freedom” can and must be restored. Thank you for your leadership.

  40. Mark Maas said

    I can not wait to read this book, everyone is looking at the top of our government to do something, instead with this information we can start local and work up. Thank you Orrin and Oliver you both are modern day hero’s.

  41. robert wilcox said

    I have never been soo excited about a book coming out in publication! Two geniuses come together and share their ideas on how we can truly help to change our Country and make it better! Super excited and cannot wait!

  42. Heidi said

    Orrin, I love how everything you do is based on Biblical principles, and am excited to see how Leadershift brings those principles to the table to solve America’s political and economic angst. As I read history to my children, it becomes more apparent that every time man thinks he can improve and evolve and grow without those principles, the more it gets messed up….and it is so apparent that you do not fall into this category of “enlightened” thinkers. Anyone who knows you knows this. Can’t wait to read it and hand it out!

  43. Adam Rossman said

    Orrin, we can not wait to get our hands on this book!! A book about leadership and freedom from one of the greatest experts on leadership & one of the world’s greatest experts on freedom! This is sure to be a best seller by the first week! We only wish that it could come sooner :)

    Thanks for all of your hard work and time to get this book out to the people. We are looking forward to seeing you at one of the book signing stops!!

    • Adam Rossman said

      Where would everyone like to see Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille’s first book signing?

      I think it should be in Rockford, Illinois!!!! :)

  44. Chris Gornik said

    So excited to hear about this book! Even more excited to see the positive change towards freedom that it will bring to all Americans and fellow nations of our great country. God bless America

    Orrin,
    Thank you for your combined efforts with DeMille to write such a book. We wait (semi-impatiently) for its arrival. There have been many thoughts of our nations problems being too big for us as individuals to tackle, but this sounds like it will fix that thinking. Thank you again!!

    I’m with George Guzzardo on this one – I pledge to do my personal best to share this book with as many people as I can to get it in the hands of my family, friends, co-workers, mailman, banker, teachers – EVERYONE I KNOW!!! I am inspired every day by someone in the LIFE business and am grateful beyond words for how it has opened my eyes to changed thinking. I love when Orrin gets fired up and Olliver is one of my favorite speakers. Keep it coming as we go to a million and God bless you both for your servant leadership and open arms.

  55. Hey Orrin, I was privileged to read an early copy of Leadershift and have not been able to stop talking about it since. This book identifies the causes of the current problems we face and then outlines real answers. The LIFE business is raising up many of the leaders necessary to begin a Leadershift! Thank you for all you do, I can not wait for the world to get their hands on this book.

  56. Mark Inman said

    WOW !!! Can’t wait to read Leadershift and make sure all my friends and family read it to. Thank you for all your wisdom and all you do for the TEAM.I am so greatful for your leadership Orin.

    What a terrific first blog post for 2013 – coming as it does with the shadow of the non leaders in Washington discussing what they have & doing what they’ve done ( saying no more ;)) , this information about what’s to come in 3+ mos. is like breathing oxygen v. carbon dioxide in all 8 F’s – especially Freedom. Thank you for doing what you’re doing along with the incomparable Mr. Oliver D! You two are a potent combination & truly leaders for the age in which we find ourselves, due to those 4 events from a century ago.

    This book is going to be a hit, and I’ll do my part to ensure its message gets out. Count on that.

    Blessings from your Kaizen clan!

    Thank you Orrin for having the moral character for doing the right thing for the right reason. I chuckle to myself in thankfulness that you “chose” to “rise to the occasion” in the legal battle that you fought for all of us. It is truly an exciting time to be part of your vision of reaching 1 million people…… The launch of your newest book is sure to catapult many many people in the direction that our country needs to go….

    We were invited to watch the movie “Last Ounce of Courage” at a local church last night. I couldn’t help but think of you!

    Honestly, who else in America is creating solutions instead of crying about the problems. Great idea to buy 2 and pass one on to someone with govt influence.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this book. As Napoleon said, “leaders are dealers in hope” , thanks for breathing hope into our country.
    God bless!

    I am very excited about my chance to read a book with solutions.

  77. Imelda Roman said

    How inspiring, the thought of a real solution to our nation’s seemingly hopeless situation. Very excited for the release of this book.

  78. Amy Antonucci said

    I wanted an extra copy to give to someone when it comes out, but I think I’m with George. I want a whole case to give out to people! I can’t wait!!

  79. Orrin,

    I am looking forward to your book LeaderShift and more importantly the impact it will have on our American culture.

    From every corner of society we hear the need for change but too often the solutions are painted by partisanship and not by applying principle. Principles applied will work and your simple point about households being held responsible for our household budgets should ring true to all Americans.

    Thanks for displaying your courage of leadership.

  81. Paul Brown said

    I cannot wait! This very well may be the information our country needs to be revitalized. Build the community and awaken the giant!

    Orrin,

    I am so excited about reading a book from 2 men who have changed my life and thinking so dramatically! I can’t say enough good things about Orrin and Oliver. I agree with Chris Miller, the time has come to quit ranting, raving and arguing in the social media and get on with sharing information, ideas, and these life-changing books with people out there who want to do something to fight for our country and freedoms, but are at a loss for how they can help. We need to quickly find them and share LIFE! I will personally share these books with as many people as I can!

  86. Brian Martig said

    We are ready for more, Orrin and Oliver.

    Looking forward to this book and understanding both Oliver & your possible coverage of the principals of solidarity and subsidiarity. The principle of solidarity, simply stated, means that every human being on the face of the earth is my brother and my sister, my “neighbor” in the biblical sense. At the same time, the time-tested best way for assisting our neighbors throughout the world should follow the principle of subsidiarity. That means the problem at hand should be addressed at the lowest level possible — that is, the level closest to the people in need.

  88. Amy Young said

    This book is sure to be exactly the tool America needs to realign herself with her founding ideals. I am deeply grateful for the time Orrin and Oliver have dedicated to improving our world.

  89. Alison Ruhlman said

    WOW!!! I don’t know how to respond to this in words! THANKS to Orrin and Oliver in advance for this life changing book….first a life changing business and now a life changing book for America! WOW! I feel like this is a little slice of heaven we are experiencing!! Can’t wait to read this and hand it to everyone I know!

  90. Kim VanSlembrouck said

    Wow, 2 great minds coming together to offer solutions, not just for the individuals in our wonderful country but now for our government too!… the book can’t come out fast enough! I’m with George….we all need to get cases and spread the word! Thanks, Orrin and Oliver!

  91. Woodward/DeMille 2016!!
    With leaders like Orrin & Oliver inspiring and providing the example they are, I have no doubt that they and those they inspire (including myself) are going to be the difference makers in the coming years. There is hope for our country(ies)! We need to continue spreading that hope being ‘glaze-killers’, voracious readers, community leaders, & entrepreneurial thinkers.

  92. CJ Calvert said

    Orrin, I am honored to be part of your organization. I can’t wait to read this book!

  93. Tonya and Matt Bayne said

    Following leaders like Orrin, Chris, Bill And the rest of the Policy Counsel and knowing that we can learn and apply these truths in our lives to then be able to go out and expose these to others has turned into our life purpose. Thank you for leading for the sake of our future generations.
    Tonya and Matt Bayne

  94. Very excited for this one! Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, Dan Hawkins, and Tim Marks have such great blogs! I love the information being taught in the LIFE business. Can’t wait to hear about the new PC’s and RT’s in the coming months! Thank you!

    This is an amazing adventure being involved with Orrin and The Team. Changing lives and growing leaders 1 person at a time.

    Fired up,

    Damon & Shannon Gray

  108. I do feel the country is in a state of overwhelm. Feeling the problem is to big. Giving us a vision with an answer is the first step in turning the tide. Then take the answer to our communities and implement.
    There are not words enough to thank the authors!
