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.

Op-Ed: Stay out of Libya

American presidents have sought to police the globe for generations. What has it gotten us? Endless war abroad, and big government and economic hardship at home.

He should not be allowed to extend it to Libya.

Also its always easier to get into a war then to get out as has been shown most recently in Afghanistan and Iraq

Which is the more-obnoxious militarist, McCain or Lieberman? That's a tough one . . .

Maybe Iraqis and/or Afghans could help us choose. Libyans? Anyone?
