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.

What Were We Thinking?

What made any of us think that Republicans wouldn't go for Trump? I mean, what were we thinking?

The body of Christ shall rise once more!
That's what we were thinking.
Always fooled by superstitions, like that of the stronghold that religionists have on US elections. Bull shit!

Is Trump more or less likely than Cruz, Clinton et al to start wars? Are we supposed to know the answer to this question by instinct because he's a vulgar buffoon? At least 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed by the USGOV since 2003 - will Trump be worse? I don't know. Does Sheldon?
