Customer Reviews

I didn't realize how bad things were myself until I read this book.
The Actor
Wolves, claims Judge Napolitano, can think for themselves, and don't trust that the shepherds always look out for their best interest.
Mr. Michael A. Musarra
The structure of the facts in this book is put together to not only build a "case" but to be a most "easy read".
Martin Ullstrup

Judge Napolitano has done it again! With superb clarity he reminds us of the vast chasm between what the United States is and how the United States is meant to be. As in his prior books, the Judge chronicles the step by step erosion of our constitutional rights and now challenges each reader to stand not as a sheep, but a wolf. He also reminds us that the only power that government is to have is that consented to by the governed. If you read only one non-fiction book this year...make it this one!

Does the federal government really follow it's own laws? Can the federal government really disobey the constitution in hopes of preserving the union's security? No, claims Judge Andrew Napolitano in his latest work A Nation Of Sheep. Napolitano asserts that the citizen's of the United States have been acting like sheep for quite some time now. All in the name of security, the people of the United States have been passive as the government strips them of their rights guaranteed to them in their own constitution. The Judge doesn't just blame the current executive, but traces the abuse all the way back to the revered Abraham Lincoln.
To understand much of Napolitano's reasoning for rejecting the idea that the government can "take" away our freedoms to provide us security, he starts off his work with a chapter entitled "Where Does Freedom Come From?" This particular chapter outlines a theory which is dubbed natural law. "Natural law," writes Napolitano, "states that because all humans desire freedom from artificial restraint, and because all human beings yearn to be free, our freedoms stem from our very humanity, and ultimately from the Creator of humanity" (p.2). Judge Napolitano suggests that the idea that government can take away our freedoms gives the notion that the government gave us our freedom; however, according to natural law, our freedoms come from God, and not the government. Whether the reader is a theist or not, the Judge provides ample examples of what the founding fathers thought about the subject; even Jefferson, probably the least religious of all the founding fathers, seemed to have supported the natural law theory.

Another home run by the fearless New Jersey judge! From the Federalists of the Founding generation, to Dishonest Abe Lincoln, to the flag-waving "patriots" of the present, Napolitano tells how our Constitutional rights as Americans have been undermined and denied-always by leaders claiming to "protect" us. When will we ever learn that government is the enemy of liberty?

Judge Napolitano has obviously taken his oath of office seriously, 'defending the Constitution against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC'.
The examples he provides show the attempts, and successes, of governments past and present to subvert our Constitutional rights. It's not a new scenario, it's rarely unsuccessful, and the results are compounding.
If you are not the type of person to dig deeper, look for answers, and get involved then you are probably better off passing on this book. After all, if the rest of the flock is unconcerned everything must be OK, right?

Format: Hardcover
Judge Napolitano is not happy. After you read A Nation of Sheep, you won't be, either. At least not about the state of our rights, freedoms and privacy in 2008 America. What you will be, if you are like me, is angry; angry to discover how poorly the U.S. Constitution has been respected and followed by the people sworn to uphold it throughout much of American history, and how the current administration is arguably the worst we have ever witnessed in this regard. Napolitano argues that they engage in this illegal and anti-American behavior because we the people let them get away with it; WE ARE the nation of sheep, and far too few of us choose to stand up and fight - become "wolves" instead.

I have often watched Judge Napolitano comment on American politics and law in his role as a pundit on cable television news. I don't always agree with him, but this book is powerful and convincing. Hardly any American would argue with the notion that we live in a dangerous age, but more and more, the real question is becoming that of whence comes the greater danger to the nation, foreign lands or Washington D.C. and our own so-called public servants.

READ THIS BOOK if you care about your country. True patriotism sometimes requires that we get angry in order to find the motivation we need to stand up for what counts. Judge Napolitano is standing, and he needs all of us to join him!

I've often felt as if I were among the few Napolitano calls wolves: Americans that dare to scream, holler and shout when government violates our Constitution. But even knowing of the vast Constitutional abuses I have been witness to in my lifetime, I never realized how widespread (and indeed, how old) some of the most egregious violations of our Constitution are.

This book is a must read for all Americans. The American government is ours, and we must awaken to its behavior before we lose the ability to do anything about it.
