A harsh and revealing political expose of two beloved presidents. Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how Roosevelt, a bully, and Wilson, a constitutional scholar, each pushed aside the Constitution's restrictions on the federal government and used it as an instrument to redistribute wealth, regulate personal behavior, and enrich the government. These two men and the Progressives that supported them have brought us, among other things: the income tax the Federal Reserve compulsory, state-prescribed education the destruction of state sovereignty the rise of Jim Crow and military conscription prohibition and war This Progressive Era witnessed the most dramatic peaceful shift of power from persons and from the states to a new and permanent federal bureaucracy in all of American history.
