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.

If you've ever needed direct evidence of the ruling class, with the mass media as junior partner in plunder, observe the reaction to the defeat of the bailout plan in Congress. The power elite has been dealt a shocking blow by the revolt we witnessed yesterday, and that shock is fully reflected by the pundits on the morning news shows. They cannot believe that the "responsible thing" was not done. The only dissenter I've seen in the last 36 hours is Lou Dobbs (bless his soul!).

I think Glenn Beck was also opposed to it. Though I didn't catch his show in the last 36 hours...

Bless Dobbs' soul? Agh, you're scaring me!
