The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution shows that there is very little relationship between the Constitution ratified by the thirteen states more than two centuries ago and the “constitutional law” imposed upon us in the name of that Constitution since then.
Instead of the system dominated by state-level decision-makers and elected officials the Constitution was intended to create, the judges have given us a highly centralized system in which bureaucrats and appointed officials make most of the important policies.
As Professor Gutzman shows, constitutional law is supposed to be the application of the Constitution’s plain meaning to bind judges, presidents, and congresses–all wielders of federal power. If we want to return to the Founding Fathers’ vision of the Republic, if we want the Constitution enforced in the way it was explained to the people at the time of its ratification, then we have to overcome the “received wisdom” about what constitutional law is. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution is a step in that direction.
