Who Killed the Constitution?
In Who Killed the Constitution? bestselling authors Thomas E. Woods Jr. and Kevin R.C. Gutzman reveal just how widespread the attacks on the Constitution really are. Their blistering new book exposes the “dirty dozen” — the twelve assaults that have destroyed the government the Founding Fathers gave us. While there is much for libertarians to applaud, some may have problems with the author’s views in a couple of areas. They hold a “states’ right’s” perspective and argue that the Bill of Rights can be violated by individual states. This conservative approach is not held by many libertarians.
“If you want to know why the federal government regulates the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the words you speak, read Who Killed the Constitution? This is a no-holds-barred, no-nonsense, non-ideological, profound analysis of why and how those in whose custody we have reposed the Constitution, those who have taken oaths to uphold it, have not only avoided preserving it but have intentionally exterminated it. When the history of these unfree times is written, Tom Woods and Kevin Gutzman’s fearless work will be recognized as the standard against which all others are measured.”

“It’s about time someone shouted out that the emperor has no clothes. And hasn’t had any since 1861, when the federal government started to shred the Constitution and saw that it could get away with it. Over the next century and a half, Washington steadily marginalized the document in pursuit of an ever-greater empire, and today it rules with virtually no constitutional justification at all — as this very useful book so persuasively points out.”
