NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Some of America's most important founders have been erased from our history books. In the fight to restore the true meaning of the Constitution, their stories must be told. In the earliest days of our nation, a handful of unsung heroes-including women, slaves, and an Iroquois chief-made crucial contributions to our republic. They pioneered the ideas that led to the Bill of Rights, the separation of powers, and the abolition of slavery. Yet, their faces haven't been printed on our currency or carved into any cliffs. Instead, they were marginalized, silenced, or forgotten-sometimes by an accident of history, sometimes by design. In the thick of the debates over the Constitution, some founders warned about the dangers of giving too much power to the central government. Though they did not win every battle, these anti-Federalists and their allies managed to insert a system of checks and balances to protect the people from an intrusive federal governme

We've had many corrupt leaders who were correct about particular topics. I think you are missing the point of the book. He's addressing Particular and Specific Issues. On the issue of the dangers of big government, Aaron Burr obviously foresaw the nightmare we now live under! Your one little point is missing the big picture. Then to draw a conclussion about the author that you do is simply absurd.

This book was written by a complete whackadoodle, and a completely historically inaccurate misinformation spewer! ! !
Aaron Burr was a soundrel and criminal of the first order, which was why Alexander Hamilton was so against him!
When I was in college in the D.C. area, researching a paper at the Library of Congress, I happened upon the copy of the utility legislation Burr created for New York state, which had some most devious and clever clauses inserted throughout by Burr, granting Aaron Burr sole power to charter any and all banks in New York for perpetuity!
Un-frigging-believable!?!?!? Which led to the ending of friendship and partnership when Hamilton discovered this! [Remember, this was only supposed to be concerning water utility in NY.]
The politician writing this must be hopelessly corrupt. . .
