What Would the Founders Do?

Politicians, Economists and the Supreme Court at Work: The Founders Betrayed

Politicians, Economists and the Supreme Court at Work: The Founders Betrayed

Thomas Jefferson wrote "I wish - never to see all offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold at market." What would Jefferson, Madison and the other Founders write today? Deploying their moral and political philosophy, their political economy and their understanding of the Constitution, Timothy P. Roth contends that the Founders would tell us that most of what the federal government does is either immoral, unconstitutional, or both.

 A sobering and emphatic reminder of how far we have strayed from the principles on which the republic was established.
