Original Intent presents nothing more than the explicit Truth and purpose of the Founding Fathers' in their own words. Somehow forgotten, ignored or perverted, these words still contain within them the potential for revolution in the heart and mind of America. Revealed in the language of the common citizen these words carry with them power for the American people to chastise the adolescent dalliances of the legal establishment and to harness the Judiciary so that it may again hear the crack of it's master's whip. Original Intent, and the Founders' words therein, are presented in quite a timely fashion. I am sure this was the Fathers' design that their words would reinspire our nation, at times of disillusionment, to the greatness they purposed. This greatness being the principles of absolute Truth under which all persons are governed.

One of the most poorly researched and theorized books I've ever read. Barton is clearly writing to a likeminded audience who are ready and willing to swallow everything he writes. Anyone with rudimentary knowledge of Revolutionary America should see serious flaws in Barton's work and see how Barton already had the answers to the questions he asks in this book before beginning his research. He does, however, address an important question: should the law reflect its own time or maintain stasis? Studying the history of American law would show that the law has always been fluid. How can we assess the original intent of the founders when there were hundreds of founders who did not agree? The USA today is drastically different from the one that existed 200 years ago, and to claim to carry on the founders' intent is lunacy.
