Judge Napolitano: How Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson Destroyed Constitutional Freedom

This is an excellent explanation by Judge Napolitano, who I have always admired. I do not agree with him 100% of the time but then I NEVER agree with anyone all the time. I do know people do not agree with me all the time and that is just fine by me. You can toss in Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) and Jimmy Carter in with these two POTUS who have really helped trash our once fine republic.

Hey John, I know with Cry and Howl back you will bail out of here and not answer the questions thrown at you by Andrea and Nick. So typically libtarded of you and it just proves that liberalism is a terminal illness. Maybe your POTUS will pay for your treatments with Obamacare. Or as a closet member of the 1%, you can afford to pay your own way on health care, right? No, I forgot it will be us, the taxpayers who will get the continual shaft from YOUR POTUS.  PatriotUSA

"The radical change in the relationship of the federal government to individual Americans was ratcheted up greatly in the Progressive Era," argues Judge Andrew Napolitano in his new book, Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom.

The first decades of the 20th century saw an assault on individual liberties that was both unconstitutional and unprecedented in American history. From crackdowns on freedom of speech to the seizures of vast swaths of land, Judge Napolitano shows how the policies of two presidents from opposing parties laid the groundwork for a century of ever-expanding federal power.

Judge Napolitano is chief legal analyst for Fox News, a syndicated columnist, and a Reason contributor (read his archive here). He recently sat down with Nick Gillespie to talk about his latest book and discuss the relevance of the Progressive era - a time of prohibition, military expansionism, and vilification of wealth - to today's political struggles.
