Episode 197: “How We Can Rein in the Power of the Federal Government” with Mark Meckler.
The genius of the founders who gave us the United States Constitution was that they sought to provide a system of government to guard against the concentration of power by an elite few. Their clear-eyed understanding of human nature was that unchecked power almost always and everywhere has been the source of tyranny throughout history. But for more than a century in America, the Constitution, as drafted and ratified, has been either ignored or, creatively lawyered by Supreme Court rulings, to expand federal power.

Episode 159: “Marxism’s Long March” with Mark Meckler and Eric O’Keefe
