Ezra Klein, staff writer at the Washington Post, would have us believe that the Constitution is dead. In an interview on MSNBC, he said that a Republican plan to read the Constitution in Congress “has no binding power on anything.”

And, the text of the Constitution is “confusing…because it was written more than 100 years ago.”
(h/t Mike Maharrey)

Watch it:

Ezra’s view is not unique. Those that love centralized power would have us believe that the founders’ constitution, and any attempts to bring it to light, is worthless.

Many people – including the former law instructor who now serves as President of the United States – believe that it is impossible to reconstruct the Constitution’s original meaning.

But as Rob Natelson’s new book, The Original Constitution, demonstrates, that view is a crock.

With a little reading and education, views like Klein’s are easy to refute. Get the book here.
