Judge Andrew Napolitano was back on my show this afternoon to talk about his newly published book, “A Nation of Sheep.”
In it, he rails against the Bush administration’s continuing encroachment on our civil liberties (particularly the Patriot Act) and the slew of Congressmen and Senators of both parties who go along with it. They’ve all forgotten their oath of office — to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States — which Judge Nap cleverly includes in its entirety in his book.
He explained how many abuses of the Patriot Act there have been since it was passed without most members of Congress even bothering to read it, and what he says to those who claim “we’re fighting against terrorists, so if it saves one American life, I don’t care if the government listens to my phone calls or reads my e-mails.”
We also talked about cities putting up more and more surveillance cameras, politicians and candidates pushing protesters into “free speech zones,” and what Americans like you can do to stop politicians from using fear tactics to increase their governmental power.
