The Naked Constitution
What the Founders Said and Why It Still MattersBook - 2012
Explains the themes of America's founding charter, discusses the nature of each branch of government, and argues that the original meaning of the Constitution is the only way to restore the Founding Fathers' vision of American liberty.
“In this very entertaining and informative book, Freedman skewers those who have judicially rewritten the Constitution at the expense of our individual liberties. Well-researched and full of historical insight.”
—David Limbaugh, author of The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic
Conservative legal scholar Adam Freedman has written a spirited manifesto on the need to recover the original meaning of America’s Constitution—an intelligent, incisive examination of what our nation’s founding fathers actually wrote in this all-important document and why it still matters today. Freedman’s The Naked Constitution offers a lively defense of “original intent” in the vein of the Glen Beck bestseller The Original Argument, while decrying the current distortions and misrepresentations that will come into play as high profile lawsuits concerning such issues as healthcare, immigration, and gay marriage begin reaching the Supreme Court.
Explaining the fundamental themes animating America's founding charter, as well as the nature of each of the three branches of government, a popular podcaster, writer and conservative legal scholar argues that “originalism” is the only way to restore the Founding Fathers' vision of American liberty. 25,000 first printing.
