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.

And Another Thing...

More on Abramoff: It’s funny how all the people who love that the government gives away more than two trillion dollars a year (they’d like it to be more) get terribly upset that other people go to great lengths to get a piece of the action. What did they think would happen? You want to get rid of the Abramoffs? End every form of welfare spending. Start with corporate welfare.
