9781480594654: Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom

“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. Their destructive legacy still dominates the nation in the form of the progressive income tax, state-prescribed compulsory education, the Federal Reserve, perpetual wars, and the constant encroachment of a government that coddles special interests and discourages true marketplace competition. Today, inescapable bureaucracy invades virtually all aspects of public and private life. Pegging Roosevelt and Wilson as ideologues bent on using the presidency to redistribute wealth, regulate personal behavior, and consolidate federal power, Judge Napolitano exposes the intellectually arrogant, autocratic, even racist impulses that drove them to poison the American constitutional system. Anyone concerned about civil, economic, or individual liberty will find Judge Napolitano’s exposé informative, infuriating, and indispensable.

Product Description:

“Either the Constitution means what it says, or it doesn’t.” America’s founding fathers saw freedom as a part of our nature to be protected—not to be usurped by the federal government—and so 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 caring more about the advancement of progressive, redistributionist ideology than the principles on which America was founded. Theodore and Woodrow is Judge Andrew P. Napolitano’s shocking historical account of how a Republican and a Democratic president oversaw the greatest shift in power in American history, from a land built on the belief that authority should be left to the individuals and the states to a bloated, far-reaching federal bureaucracy, continuing to grow and consume power each day. With lessons rooted in history, Judge Napolitano shows the intellectually arrogant, anti-personal freedom, even racist progressive philosophy driving these men to poison the American system of government. And Americans still pay for their legacy—in the federal income, in state-prescribed compulsory education, in the Federal Reserve, in perpetual wars, and in the constant encroachment of a government that coddles special interests and discourages true competition in the marketplace. With his attention to detail, deep constitutional knowledge, and unwavering adherence to truth telling, Judge Napolitano moves through the history of these men and their times in office to show how American values and the Constitution were sadly set aside, leaving personal freedom as a shadow of its former self, in the grip of an insidious, Nanny state, progressive ideology.
