“In this very entertaining and informative book, Freedman skewers those who have judicially rewritten the Constitution at the expense of our individual liberties. Well-researched and full of historical insight.”
—David Limbaugh, author of The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic
Conservative legal scholar Adam Freedman has written a spirited manifesto on the need to recover the original meaning of America’s Constitution—an intelligent, incisive examination of what our nation’s founding fathers actually wrote in this all-important document and why it still matters today. Freedman’s The Naked Constitution offers a lively defense of “original intent” in the vein of the Glen Beck bestseller The Original Argument, while decrying the current distortions and misrepresentations that will come into play as high profile lawsuits concerning such issues as healthcare, immigration, and gay marriage begin reaching the Supreme Court.

— Mark Levin, author of Med in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America
“Brilliant, lively, pugnacious, and very ambitious. Freedman intends to reclaim our founding document for us, the laymen, the ordinary citizens whom the Constitution was intended to serve, and masterfully does so in this lucid and accessible book.”
— Peter Robinson, fellow, Hoover Institution, and former Reagan speechwriter
In this very entertaining and informative book, Freedman skewers those who have judicially rewritten the Constitution at the expense of our individual liberties. Well-researched and full of historical insight, The Naked Constitution explains the Founders’ original meaning, and demonstrates the urgency of reclaiming America’s founding ideals. Well done.
