I am old enough to have observed some of this first hand. The greatest violators are our Supreme Court Judges who think it's ok to be activists and legislate from the bench. Their arrogance is beyond understanding.

The Constitution Under Siege

Three recent books demonstrate that the United States of America has slipped the moorings established over two hundred years ago by our founders - especially in the U.S. Constitution.

On my recent summer vacation, I read three fascinating books: Leave Us Alone: Getting the Government's Hands Off Our Money, Our Guns, Our Lives, by Grover Norquist, Who Killed the Constitution, by Thomas Woods, Jr & Kevin Gutzman, and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Western Civilization by Anthony Esolen. Although they differ markedly in style and content, there is a theme that is common to all of them. Namely, each both asserts and attempts to demonstrate that the United States of America has slipped the moorings established over two hundred years ago by our founders - especially in the U.S. Constitution. Moreover, the slippage is broad, deep and seemingly permanent. The liberties we have lost, the limited government that we aspired to, the culture that we have shed, the morals taught by our religiously-inspired forefathers, these are bid good riddance by nearly half our population; and the vast majority of the rest - who might rue these changes if they thought seriously about them - do not even realize what has happened.

Over the last century, the captains of the ship who have plotted this voyage have steered the USA away from the open waterways of: limited government, a strong allegiance to Western Civilization, the preservation of the traditional family, and a clear vision of the USA as Winthrop's and Reagan's shining city on a hill; instead, they've steered the ship straight down the narrow isthmus of: the nanny state, multiculturalism, multilateralism, a socialist economy and an enfeebled national defense. The final port of call is the besotted, morally degenerate, week-kneed, aging, nearly defenseless, ill-fated continent that Europe has become.
