Book Review: Suicide Pact

Suicide Pact
The Radical Expansion of Presidential Powers and the Lethal Threat to American Liberty 
By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano 

America's constitutional rights are never more endangered than when the federal government promises greater national security. So argues Judge Andrew P. Napolitano in this compelling chronicle of America's long transformation from land of liberty to a frightening surveillance state. In sobering detail, Napolitano constitutional scholar judicial analyst syndicated columnist, and best-selling author ex-oses the lie of the "balancing act" doctrine that has curbed constitutional liberties for the sake of national security. The truth is that freedom fosters security, while trading the former for the latter undermines both. 

Shining new light on Americas' gradual loss of personal freedoms, Suicide Pact traces a path from colonial rule to the Civil War, from Reconstruction through both World Wars, from the Cold War to the current War on Terrorism. With a masterly mix of history legal analysis and contemporary reporting, Judge Napolitano explores the executive orders and court rulings that have become a lethal threat to the US Constitution. Suicide Pact is an urgent all for pushback and for a sound legal framework to restore government to its constitutional role=preserving and protecting freedom.

I have to say that I'm a huge fan of privacy. I know that might come as a shock due to the fact that I share pieces of my life with anyone who's interested, but it's a whole different story when people (the government)  are looking into things  that you don't want looked into. The Suicide Pact was eye opening.
