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.

Let the Immigrants Stay

Virtually all commentary about the influx of unaccompanied Central American children into the United States, which some say could rise to 90,000 this year, misses the point: no government has the moral authority to capture these kids and send them back to the miserable situations they have escaped.
The op-ed is here.

Yet I as a taxpayer will get stuck with the bill for these “refugees“. Remember that not only are the so-called charities who take in these children are paid contractors of the US government but they will also next be put into the school and medical system where they will steal more of my money.

The better life they want comes from money stolen from the taxpayers.

What about the morals of that?

And please don’t say they are separate issues, they are tied together at the point of a gun.
