Draggingtree Posted July 5, 2014 Share Posted July 5, 2014 Patterico : 7/4/2014 A Constitutional Crisis, And the American Response Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:55 pm There is a constitutional crisis in the land. The rulers are ignoring the written constitution, contend many, and are oppressing the people in a manner that deprives citizens of their long-held constitutional rights — rights that the citizens consider innate and God-given. And so, the people take the only action that seems to make any sense: they revolt. Violently. And today, we celebrate their revolution. This is Kevin Gutzman’s interesting take on the American Revolution: that it was actually a “constitutional crisis.” You can hear Gutzman offering the thesis here, on Tom Woods’s podcast: Gutzman is the best-selling author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution, which I have read and found excellent, as well as Who Killed the Constitution?, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
