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.

First Define Your Terms

I don't mean to make Sean Hannity apoplectic, but I don't "love my country." Why not? Because I don't know what the hell that means and I don't sign on to things without knowing the terms.

After delivering himself of some scandalous remark or another, George Orwell was accosted by his listener with the accusation, "You sound like you're the kind of person who would betray his country for the sake of his best friend!"

Orwell probably really felt the puzzlement he expressed when he responded, "Well, I should certainly HOPE I would!"
