It’s Not Your Founding Fathers’ Republic Any More

Presidents, Congresses, and courts are creating an elective despotism.

Summer 2014

How far have we distorted the Constitution that the Founders gave us, and how much does it matter? A phalanx of recent books warns that we have undermined our fundamental law so recklessly that Americans should worry that government of the people, by the people, and for the people really could perish from the earth. The tomes—Adam Freedman’s engaging The Naked Constitution, Mark R. Levin’s impassioned The Liberty Amendments, Richard A. Epstein’s masterful The Classical Liberal Constitution, and Philip K. Howard’s eloquent and levelheaded The Rule of Nobody (in order of publication)—look at the question from different angles and offer different fixes to it, but all agree that Americans need to take action right now.

That's all people want today is more things to play with that are useless. Throw out a perfectly good phone to buy one with a new gadget that is useless that will never be used. Play stupid computer games that dull your mind.

Look at the time wasting posts on here about Obama, A mute point if ever there was one since his term is almost up. They don't read or comment on the rests of the posts that are really important except for you and I and reality is a crutch.
