Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America's Founding Document book - The dramatic stories behind the most neglected parts of the Constitution, from Alexander Hamilton to Barack Obama

Nearly everyone in Washington is a self-proclaimed defender of the Constitution, yet many either don’t understand or have consciously disregarded the document they’ve sworn to defend. Even many conservatives have been willing to overlook provisions that were designed to protect our fundamental liberties from an overreaching federal government.

Now Senator Mike Lee tells the dramatic, little known stories behind key parts of the Constitution. He shows how every abuse of federal power today is rooted in neglect of the Constitution - and most of those abuses were predicted by the Founders. For example:

• The Origination Clause says that all bills to raise taxes must originate in the House. It was gutted in 1892, leading eventually to Obamacare.
• The Fourth Amendment protects us against unreasonable search and seizure, but the NSA now collects our data without a warrant.
• The Legislative Powers Clause means that only Congress can pass laws, but unelected agencies now produce the vast majority of binding rules.

Senator Lee also explores the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, the Establishment Clause, among others, and makes a strong case for restoring our lost constitution.
