Restoring the lost constitution : the presumption of liberty by Randy E Barnett( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The U.S. Constitution found in school textbooks and under glass in Washington is not the one enforced today by the Supreme Court. In Restoring the Lost Constitution, Randy Barnett argues that since the nation's founding, but especially since the 1930s, the courts have been cutting holes in the original Constitution and its amendments to eliminate the parts that protect liberty from the power of government. From the Commerce Clause, to the Necessary and Proper Clause, to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, to the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Supreme Court has rendered each of these provisions toothless. In the process, the written Constitution has been lost." "Barnett establishes the original meaning of these lost clauses and offers a practical way to restore them to their central role in constraining government: adopting a "presumption of liberty" to give the benefit of the doubt to citizens when laws restrict their rightful exercises of liberty. He also provides a new, realistic and philosophically rigorous theory of constitutional legitimacy that justifies both interpreting the Constitution according to its original meaning and, where that meaning is vague or openended, construing it so as to better protect the rights retained by the people."--Jacket

Our republican Constitution : securing the liberty and sovereignty of We the people by Randy E Barnett( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the early days of the American republic, the nature of government "of the people, by the people, for the people" has been disputed. This is because there are not one but two very different notions of "We the People" and popular sovereignty, which yield competing schools of constitutional thought. The democrats view We the People collectively and think popular sovereignty resides in the people as a group. They view the Constitution as a living document and contend that today's majority should not be governed by the dead hand of past majorities. The republicans view We the People as a collection of individuals. Their vision of government is that it should not reflect the will of the majority : but rather secure the preexisting rights of each and every person to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This fundamental disagreement lies at the heart of our current national divide. In Our Republican Constitution, Barnett tells the fascinating story of how this conflict arose shortly after the Revolution, leading to the adoption of a new and innovative republican constitution; and how the struggle and eventual victory over slavery led to its improvement by a newly formed Republican Party. Yet soon after, progressive academics and activists urged the courts to remake it into a democratic constitution by ignoring key passages of its text. And eventually the courts complied. Drawing from his deep knowledge of constitutional law and history : as well as his experience litigating on behalf of medical marijuana and against Obamacare : Barnett explains why We the People would benefit greatly from the renewal of our Republican Constitution, and how this can be accomplished in the courts, and political arena --Book jacket

A conspiracy against Obamacare : the Volokh conspiracy and the health care case by Randy E Barnett( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The debate over the Affordable Care Act was one of the most important and public examinations of the Constitution in our history. At the forefront of that debate were the legal scholars blogging at the Volokh Conspiracy, who engaged in a spirited, erudite, and accessible discussion of the legal issues involved in the cases. Several of the Volokh bloggers played key roles in developing the constitutional arguments against the ACA. It was perhaps the first time that a blog affected arguments submitted to the United States on a major issue. This book compiles the discussion that unfolded at the Volokh Conspiracy blog into a readable narrative, enhanced with new context and analysis, as the contributors reflect on the Obamacare litigation with the advantage of hindsight. The different bloggers certainly did not always agree with each other, but the back-and-forth debates provide momentum as the reader follows the development of the arguments over time. A Conspiracy Against Obamacare exemplifies an important new form of legal discourse and public intellectualism"--Unedited summary from book cover

Varieties of conservatism in America by Peter Berkowitz( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume demonstrate that the debate among conservatives about which principles and practices are most urgently in need of protection is also a debate with that larger liberalism that undergirds the American constitutional order. The essays suggest as well that this larger liberalism, with its bedrock devotion to individual liberty and equality before the law, serves as the common ground on which the contending camps within conservatism - and indeed conservatives in their contentions with progressives - can come together, debate civilly, and discover ways to advance the public good
