Think you know what the founders meant?
I recently read 'The Founding Fathers Guide to the Constitution' and enjoyed it thoroughly. The author shines a welcome light on the men and ideas competing both at the Philadelphia convention and the state ratifying conventions, not to mention the wise words of Brutus, an Old Whig and others who were rightfully wary of giving too much power to the general government. I wish people were more familiar with these important exchanges (and somewhat less familiar with the Federalist Papers, which have been elevated to gospel status by the Supreme Court). Buy this book for yourself or give it as a gift to someone who thinks they know the "original intent" of the founders and framers. In light of the recent controversy surrounding the Obamacare decision in particular and the role of the court in general, this book and the ideas therein could not be more timely.
