Who Killed the Constitution?

Welcome to Tony Island Blog!

Who Killed the Constitution?: The Federal Government vs. American Liberty from World War I to Barack ObamaIf you are interested in liberty, then you have to read Woods and Gutzman's Who Killed the Constitution? Taking 12 pivotal points in American history, the authors dissect the decisions and actions taken by Presidents, Supreme Court justices and Congresses to completely kill and gut the Constitution. I won't get into the 12 scenarios dissected so you can read them freshly for yourself, but I will say it was both an enlightening and depressing read.

In the final chapter, the authors posit the question - "Can a written Constitution survive?" - any Constitution, not just ours, but of course ours is the one in discussion. It's an interesting question to pose considering ours has already been killed.

At 202 pages, the book is a quick read - there's also the complete text of the Constitution as an appendix. This book is a real eye-opener and will have you thinking as you read each page.

I strongly recommend you grab yourself a copy, set aside an hour or so and see what those who have sworn to uphold the Constitution have actually done to it.

When you're done, come back here and leave a comment below. And then, TAKE ACTION! Take our country back!

Thanks for reading Tony Island Blog!
