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.

Should I be able to go to Carrier's plant in Mexico and take a job? Or, should we invade Mexico (and other parasites) to take back our sovereign property? By sovereign property I mean businesses developed here with our people, infrastructure and financial system? Why won'the parasites develope their own commercial infrastructure and products; because it's easier to steal from themselves (pretitory wages) and other's work?
