Item description for A Nation of Sheep by Andrew Napolitano...
Overview Describes how the federal government is encroaching on American freedoms and challenges citizens to fight for their constitutional rights.
In A NATION OF SHEEP, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano frankly discusses how the federal government has circumvented the Constitution and is systematically dismantling the rights and freedoms that are the foundation of American democracy.A He challenges Americans to recognize that they are being led down a very dangerous path and that the cost of following without challenge is the loss of the basic freedoms that facilitate our pursuit of happiness and that define us as a nation.
Judge Napolitano reminds readers what America is all about, that the purpose of government is to protect freedom, and freedom is the ability to follow your own free will and not the will of government bureaucrats.A He asks the simple question, which are YOU, a sheep or a wolf?A Do you blindly follow behind where you are led, or do you challenge the government at every pass, forcing it to make decisions that will protect our freedoms?
Judge Napolitano asks the questions that no one else will, challenging readers to rethink why they are blindly following a government that has only its own interests in mind.A He asks:
Why is the government using the war on terror as an excuse to sidestep the Constitution?
Why are Americans not challenging and questioning the government as it continues to limit more and more of our freedoms?
What part of "Congress shall make no law..." does the government not understand when it criminalizes speech?
Whatever happened to our inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that are proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, guaranteed by the Constitution, yet ignored by the governments elected to protect them?
Why does every public office holder swear allegiance to the Constitution, yet very few follow it?
Don't we have rights that are guaranteed and cannot be taken from us?

Reviews - What do customers think about A Nation of Sheep?
Excellent warning about government abuse Nov 3, 2008
Judge Napolitano utters a powerful warning from the unique perspective of a judge thoroughly familiar with police and government abuse. He chronicles violations of the Constitution with clear prose. However, he lacks a thorough understanding of the problem -- why has government become so abusive? Why have people morphed into sheep? For answers to these questions, check out my book on this site Common Sense II: How to Prevent the Three Types of Terrorism. It solves crime, tyranny, and foreign terrorism (the three types). And I give a map of how to restore our republic. Still, overall, Judge Napolitano's is a must-read for concerned citizens.
Waste of time Aug 20, 2008
There was nothing in this book I couldn't get by watching 30 minutes of network news. Big government and the President are breaking constitutional law and using the War On Terror to justify it. So what do we do, become a wolf?
I wonder if Mr. Napolitano really wrote this book. Total waste of time.
An excellent book on a very serious subject Jun 10, 2008
I've often felt as if I were among the few Napolitano calls wolves: Americans that dare to scream, holler and shout when government violates our Constitution. But even knowing of the vast Constitutional abuses I have been witness to in my lifetime, I never realized how widespread (and indeed, how old) some of the most egregious violations of our Constitution are.
This book is a must read for all Americans. The American government is ours, and we must awaken to its behavior before we lose the ability to do anything about it.
An absolute must read May 25, 2008
The two books I recommend the most are "A Nation of Sheep" and Ron Paul's "Revolution: A Manifesto"
Improving History's Accuracy May 11, 2008
Judge Napolitano hits another eye-opening winner for anyone who wants to continually fine-tune their insight into the U.S. Constitution and our history. Just as he did in his book The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land he minces no words when it comes to the abuses we face today. This is a really strong read and when you combine it with the new book The Revolution: A Manifesto you'll have a really strong foundation for discussing the challenges our liberty and freedom face today.
If he were only allowed to speak so plainly on Rupert Murdoch's FOX network I may still be a viewer. Since he's not I am glad he's brought out another refreshing look at why we the people need to constantly be alert for further government control and a growing sheep population.
