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.

More Campaign-Finance Reform

I see that the Republicans in the House stuck it to the Democrats by passing a new campaign-finance reform bill to limit contributions to nonprofit organizations (so-called 527s) such as America Coming Together, which worked so hard for Kerry in 2004. I guess this is the Get-Soros legislation. It's good to see the GOP standing up for free speech and limited government. How can limits on people's political spending possibly be justified?
