It helps to realize how far apart we've been driven from the constitution and the original intent of the founders.
It's a bit of a downer (Because it's accurate) but also a good refresher course for the bill of rights.
This book will open your eyes, and per Badnarik's intent, rattle your cage about what you learn. He welcomes you to research his points for yourself, which is a good idea for anyone whether you're inclined to agree or disagree with him. This book has inspired me to do further research on my own.
You will learn that many of the 'givens' in our society are in direct violation of our individual rights and/or completely 'unconstitutional'. A possibly small case in point - we always hear about our system of gov. being referred to as a democracy. We don't have a democracy. We have a republic as specifically intended by the Founding Fathers.
Someone called Michael Badnarik "unbiased" in his writings, which I completely disagree with. However, Badnarik's premises are based off of or in agreement with the major contributors among the Founding Fathers' own beliefs. Again, that is all independantly researchable. Suffice it to say, men like James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Sam Adams, George Washington and Ben Franklin would be appalled by the goverment we have today.
You can get your own copy of the Declaration of Independence/Constitution for about $5 from the Cato Institute, which is probably the first item that should be researched.
Like other readers I have noticed several typographical errors and a poor binding. Those are the only cons I can list for this book, and for me they're completely irrelevent. The content of the book far, far aways the minor cons.
I'm familiar with Badnarik running as the LP Presidential Candidate, and while I might not agree with him on every single line item of his stance, I have to say he certainly knows the Constitution and the light in which it was written and intended.
