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.

Bye, Teddy

We knew ye all too well and liked little of what we saw. You stayed around far too long, spending our money and finding ways to run our lives. For this you were dubbed the compassionate "lion of liberalism." You disgraced a noble word.

Hopefully, somewhere there is justice. You'll prefer mercy.
