In Our Lost Constitution, Senator Mike Lee tells the dramatic, little-known stories behind six of the Constitution’s most indispensable provisions. He shows their rise. He shows their fall. And he makes vividly clear how nearly every abuse of federal power today is rooted in neglect of this Lost Constitution. Examined are the Origination Clause, the Legislative Powers Clause, the Establishment Clause, the Balance of Powers and the Second and Fourth Amendments. Each has been used at some time in our Nation’s history by shortsighted opportunists to defy the Constitution’s safeguards to liberty.
Sections of the Constitution may have been forgotten, but it’s not too late to bring them back – if only we remember why we once demanded them and how we later lost them. Drawing on his experience working in all three branches of government, Senator Lee makes the case for resurrecting the Lost Constitution to restore and defend our fundamental liberties.
Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is a former Supreme Court clerk and a tireless advocate for our founding constitutional principles. He serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Armed Services Committee, and the Joint Economic Committee and was recently named Chairman of the Senate Steering Committee.
