America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Gotta Love 'Em

I love those conservatives and Republicans who say that the key to ending the illegal immigration "problem" is to crack down on the employers who hire the "aliens." Whatever happened to free enterprise? It's okay as long as businesses hire the right people.

But the illegals broke the law, they say. There's no duty to obey an unjust law. I thought that was established long ago.

And "jury nullification" is still legal; just ask the Fully Informed Jury Association (www.fija.org).

Indeed!
