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.

Does Trump Know Anything?

If Trump really wanted to run the government like a business, he'd have to abolish taxation and offer government's purported services in a competitive marketplace. Without competition and a true profit-and-loss test, government cannot be like a business. Prospective buyers must be free to say no to sellers and to go elsewhere if they wish -- and I don't mean to another country.
