Synopsis

ôEither the Constitution means what it says, or it doesnÆt.ö

AmericaÆs founding fathers saw freedom as a part of our nature to be protectedùnot to be usurped by the federal governmentùand so enshrined separation of powers and guarantees of freedom  in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But a little over a hundred years after AmericaÆs founding, those God-given rights were laid siege by two presidents caring more about the advancement of progressive, redistributionist ideology than the principles on which America was founded.

Theodore and Woodrow is Judge Andrew P. NapolitanoÆs shocking historical account of how a Republican and a Democratic president oversaw the greatest shift in power in American history, from a land built on the belief that authority should be left to the individuals and the states to a bloated, far-reaching federal bureaucracy, continuing to grow and consume power each day.

With lessons rooted in history, Judge Napolitano shows the intellectually arrogant, anti-personal freedom, even racist progressive philosophy driving these men to poison the American system of government. 

And Americans still pay for their legacyùin the federal income, in state-prescribed compulsory education, in the Federal Reserve, in perpetual wars, and in the constant encroachment of a government that coddles special interests and discourages true competition in the marketplace.

With his attention to detail, deep constitutional knowledge, and unwavering adherence to truth telling, Judge Napolitano moves through the history of these men and their times in office to show how American values and the Constitution were sadly set aside, leaving personal freedom as a shadow of its former self,  in the grip of an insidious, Nanny state, progressive ideology.

In recent years, the American left has increasingly styled itself "progressive." This trend reflects the public repudiation of the moniker "liberal" -- a term U.S. social democrats had previously expropriated and shorn of its original commitment to economic liberty -- but also harkens back to the...
