Judge Andrew Napolitano's Lies the Government Told You should be read by every American. His book should especially be read by conservatives who love the U.S. Constitution (i.e., "constitutionalists"); conservative readers will learn that Napolitano unveils a number of troubling but unassailable facts about their country's history in his compelling book.
For years government has been using declarations of eminent domain to seize private property and use it, supposedly, for the public good. It's a practice that has been abused, and is almost always controversial.
If there is anything good to say about Democrat control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, it's that their extraordinarily brazen, heavy-handed acts have aroused a level of constitutional interest among the American people that has been dormant for far too long. Part of this heightened interest is seen in the strength of the tea party movement around the nation. Another is the angry reception that many congressmen received at their district town hall meetings. Yet another is seen by the exchanges on the nation's most popular radio talk shows such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and others. Then there's the rising popularity of conservative/libertarian television shows such as Glenn Beck, John Stossel and Fox News.
A rebellion’s brewing out there over the US census, and rightfully so. You don’t need to be a Tea Partier to object to the intrusive questionnaire — even if the form this year is “One of the shortest…in history -- 10 Questions in 10 Minutes.”
