First official Kindle purchase: Constitution in Exile

3 April 2010, 18:36 CDT

I have a few titles in my Kindle library for my iPhone, but I finally broke down and bought the actual Kindle. I wanted to read something by Judge Andrew Napolitano, so I picked up The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land, published in March of 2007.

I came across this review when I was buying the book:

“At a time when we are, in Benjamin Franklin’s words, sacrificing essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, here comes the judge with what should be mandatory reading for the executive branch cronies who are busy stealing power while they think we’re not watching. Thank goodness the judge is watching and speaking truth to power. More than a book, this is an emergency call to philosophical arms, one we must heed before it’s too late.”

The author of that salient commentary?  None other than Alan Colmes.  I wonder if he would be willing to put forth the same libertarian argument with the respect to the current administration?
