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.

Random Thoughts

  • Onion headline I'd like to see: Obama Issuing Troops Nike Footwear to Avoid Accusation He's Putting Boots on Ground in Syria.
  • Who says Obama is not brilliant? He neutralized Hagel, didn't he?
  • Let's take all the tables away from the politicians so they will have no place to put their options.
  • "National interest" is way too vague an idea to be a useful guide for anything.
