Overview

“Either the Constitution means what it says, or it doesn't.” America’s founding fathers considered liberty a basic part of our nature — something to be guarded, not usurped by the federal government. As a result, they enshrined separation of powers and guarantees of freedom in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But a little over a hundred years after America’s founding, those God-given rights were laid siege by two presidents — Republican Theodore Roosevelt and Democrat Woodrow Wilson — who cared more about the advancement of progressive, redistributionist ideology than the principles on which the country was founded. No one understands and articulates their disastrous impact better than constitutional scholar, former state Superior Court judge, and Senior Judicial Analyst for Fox News Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. In Theodore and Woodrow, he reveals how they engineered and oversaw the greatest shift in power in American history. Where once authority resided in individuals and states, Roosevelt and Wilson vested it in a bloated, overreaching federal bureaucracy.

First to respond to the critic Judge Napolitano is a libertarian and not "a member of the Conservative Sect". Many of his views actually run contrary to popular conservative views. So right off the bat Mr. Anonymous in the 1st sentence is being disingenuous. What I also find very obvious is that this critic has not even read the book!! No specific quotes or rebuttals just general unsubstantiated vitriolic attacks. So in short if you want to learn some of the untold, un-politically correct stories about these 2 men I highly recommend this book.

Show where the great American revolution was derailed. Makes the case that the government issues have their birth from Harvard, Yale and Princeton. Much like the Enron executives, the smartest people in the room are corrupt power hungry, bigoted people who disdain those who earn their way through life.

Being a libertarian (small-l), I've heard of Judge Andrew Napolitano before. Even though he is commentator on Faux News, it doesn't mean his views lean conservative. When, in fact, most, if not all, the time, he's correcting individuals on what constitutional law is all about. In regards to the book, Judge Napolitano brought light to two Presidents that are particular looked at in helping bring about great changes that were needed. Judge talks about how Theodore (Or Bull Moose, whichever you prefer) believed his policies were the best and they needed to be enacted without question. His views, being so brazen, that he even re-entered the political spectrum just so William Taft wouldn't get re-elected, ensuring Woodrow's victory. While Woodrow isn't excused in any of this, he merely continued on the same failed policies that Theodore believed was right. What makes the book great is that Judge Napolitano ties various cases in with the times and demonstrates the effects of the policies were during those times. I gave it 4 stars simply because it was biased. Granted, I understand Judge Napolitano stated in the foreword, I simply wanted something a bit more indepth. However, even with that being said, I still feel like there is a lot of information that I need to read up on. For that, in my opinion, warrants at least a read through once.

Judge Napolitano is a member of the Conservative sect (and yes, I believe it is a religion to them), who try to try to gain favor with their minions by demonizing popular historical figures. There's nothing geniune in this effort. It is simply hate-baiting. I don't need to defend either Roosevelt or Wilson here, their contributions to America have been well documented by history. However, I do need to point out how calculated and callious this trend in demonizing American figures really is. Why would Judge Napolitano, Glenn Beck and their like attack figures like Presidents Roosevelt and Wilson? For the shock factor, of course. Both Presidents are generally viewed positively by the American public. In attacking them, Judge Napolitano is counting on the reader's lack of knowledge and informed opinions of these presidents. He's also expecting the reader not to reseach his accusations and accept his argument that these two presidents are responsible for what's wrong in their personal lives.
