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.

So Much for Democracy

Nice to know that even though the auto-bailout bill died in the Senate, President Bush may bail the Big Three out anyway using the TARP money. Reportedly, the Fed itself could come to the rescue. Isn't democracy grand?

Ain't that the truth? I fail to see why we even have a Congress. It has become totally irrelevant having surrendered all to the Executive.
