    interesting read

    people like jasonmt that review books without reading is whats wrong with our political landscape. daniel hannan is british and not part of the 'republican propaganda machine.' the book perfectly illustrates the importance of the constitution and why it requires protecting. this is an interesting read regardless of ideology.

    Only read the sample but....

    I feel like he hijacked the title to better assimilate his ideology with Hayek's.

    Go for the original, it's still applicable.
