Successes From the People of The Route Out

Why The Route Out inspired me:

"I am an artist with international background.  Born and raised in Switzerland, I have lived in several countries.  My husband is American and I have made the USA my permanent home.  I love Freedom, and I love the USA and its Constitution!  I am fond of Europe too, but grew very tired of its bigotry and creeping, incremental socialism….  The USA is the last free bastion on earth and I was getting very concerned over it's course in the last few years.  I was also concerned that "we the people" were not impacting enough to prevent the political dooms day scenarios that are looming over America's beautiful skies!  I was beginning to wonder where the heck we would go if this place goes down…..  Long story short, my frustration and the need to do something was getting urgent.  The Route Out, it's common sense goal, it's Facebook links combined with the push of US Constitution is the thing "we the people" can do.  And when something indicates and makes sense I make it my own, jump on the band wagon and run with it . It works and aligns perfectly with all my other artist activities.  It becomes easy, effortless and fun!  So there you have it…  Thanks for creating The Route Out!"

Susi G. – Artist, Florida


"Here is how I see it and why I have signed the petition and am supporting "The Route Out"…  I hear so many times, the complaints of many different people and the wishes of so many that "things were different" Things CAN be different, but only if we stand together and make ourselves heard. This must be done the right way, by petitioning our government bodies with the signatures of the voting public that put them into office in the first place. I have chosen To sign this petition because if adopted it will help to build a better, fairer and more ethical system. You have the right to vote and you have the right to be heard and if hundreds of thousands of voices are saying the same thing, they will listen and act accordingly. Read the petition from "The Route Out" and if you think it has merit and the ideas stated there will help produce a better government, then simply sign it and be part of a solution. I read it, it made sense to me and I signed it."

When The Way to Happiness is introduced into any environment, it can have some wonderful effects.  We have been fortunate to have been given permission from The Way to Happiness Foundation to use The Way to Happiness videos for our efforts here at The Route Out.  Following below are some quotes from successes from The Way to Happiness Foundation that have resulted from the introduction of  The Way to Happiness in other areas.

"By encouraging young people to set a good example, supporting student efforts to get drugs off school campuses and helping to forward standards of honesty, trust and competence, the Concerned Businessmen's Association of America is to be commended and congratulated. Your program is inspirational. Your determination is outstanding. Your message is phenomenal. To the businessmen involved with this remarkable program, I extend my sincere congratulations to you. Your efforts will blaze a trail that others must certainly follow."

- Former Governor, California

"We salute your efforts to inculcate the participants of youth-oriented groups with positive values and a sense of self-worth. The Way to Happiness overflows with valuable guidance and affirms the golden rule — treating others as you want to be treated."

- City Mayor, Ohio

"As I read through parts of your book, I was struck by the message of honesty. I believe it is an important message for the children of today, as well as the idea of learning by the lessons of previous generations."

- State Assemblyman, California

The book has many important things to say. However, I believe its greatest value is the way it is given — out of love, from one friend to another. The passages can be a guide to following a good path, whether the book's user is a government or any other profession."

- City Councilman, Los Angeles, California

"The book The Way to Happiness should be an inspiration to everyone. By following the advice contained in the book, there is no doubt that all will benefit personally and successfully across life's path."

- City Mayor, California

"It is truly a common sense guide to living a happy and productive life. The day-to-day challenges we face often seem insurmountable. However, honesty and kindness are contagious. The sharing of these traits will make our world a better place."

- Under Secretary of the Army, Washington, DC

"This pamphlet can help by focusing on trust, love, honesty, The Golden Rule and enhancing life rather than destroying life. I think The Way to Happiness pamphlets are most useful in giving structure to families where it is lacking or not effective. Since positive values are the basic foundation for building a strong family life, this pamphlet can help by focusing on trust, love, honesty, The Golden Rule and enhancing life rather than destroying life."

- S.P., Family Services, California

"Your book offers many no-nonsense suggestions for living a healthy, drug-free life. Coloradoans are fortunate to have organizations like yours assisting in the drive towards healthy living."

- J.H., Deputy Director, Citizens' Advocate Office, Colorado

One of the extraordinary results of this program has been several minors admitting to me that they now feel remorse for what they have done in the past. This type of statement is highly unusual. Finally, I would like to say that the minors involved in the program have not been in lockdown for a long, long time and we do not have disciplinary problems with them. I highly recommend this program. In my opinion it should be mandatory for all minors who come to Juvenile Hall."

- C.T. County Probation Department

"I love your organization's book entitled The Way to Happiness. I've read it three times already and have shared it with others. Its philosophy parallels mine so closely it is unbelievable."

- J.C., Lieutenant Governor
