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.

No More Something for Nothing

Barack Obama says we shouldn't expect something for nothing. Fine -- many of us don't want the "something" anyway. Now when can we put an end to nothing for something?

Funny that he doesn't believe that when it comes to creating bailout money from nothing...

That makes a clever short aphorism. :)

I hate to say I told you so, but... "I told you so!" Yup, my memory is long enough that I remember you giving the wink and the nod to Obama. Your wish came true. I had a silly juvenile fantasy that neither McCain nor Obama would win, but you hinted that you were secretly rooting for Obama.

We've got absurdist economic policies, more troops in Afghanistan, and affirmations that the War on Substance Ingestion will not end. Frankly I could do with a lot less of this Change.

I wasn't secretly rooting for Obama. I was publicly rooting against McCain. I stand by that. I knew what to expect. Have you re-read the posts you refer to? Do you really call those endorsements?
