READING: A Conservative’s Treatise on American Government brings with the meaning of the Constitution’s core, which holds the keys to successful republican governance. The book then describes their distortion by the Federal government’s three branches, followed by one modern Conservative’s view of the corrections needed to return our government to working for is, instead of on us. Finally, the book is a clarion call for all Americans to confirm the realignment elections of 2010 in 2012 and beyond. The author finishes with this challenge from Leonidas to one who demand he lay down the implements of Greek freedom: “Come and take them.”
