How has our country changed over the years? Did the writers of the constitution envision the country we have today? What has happened to our freedoms?
Andrew P. Napolitano has written a book to show us what the constitution says and means. Politicians today have never even read it, but they constantly pass laws that are diametrically opposed to it.
We have a nation ran buy Bureaucrats who believe it is their job to tell us what to do in every area of our lives. They believe that we aren't smart enough to run our own lives so they need to pass laws for our own good.
The Constitution and amendments give us a list of rights the government and each citizen has.
The Left and even some on the Right seem to think the government should be our nanny. But the government has no constitutional right to force us to buy things like health insurance according to Obama-care. They have no right to tell us were to live or what we do with our own property. What right does the government have to regulate the price of milk? Why would they even want too? How can the government pass laws against owning guns when we have a RIGHT to bear arms.
Napolitano discusses many things like this in this small book. It is in a question and answer format. It takes some pretty deep subjects and explains them so they are accessible to the average reader. He shows how the supreme court has over turned our law making process, by making legislating from the bench. These are things forbidden in the constitution.
Even though it is easy to read, it does not skimp on content.
I highly recommend this book. It is a great read.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
