How Would A Patriot Act? Defending American Values From A President Run Amok is a New York Times best selling book by constitutional lawyer and author of the political blog ”Unclaimed Territory”. It was published in May of 2006 by Working Assets Publishing.
From the book: “How Would a Patriot Act? is one man’s story of being galvanized into action to defend America’s founding principles, and a reasoned argument for what must be done. Greenwald’s penetrating words should inspire a nation to defend the Constitution from a president who secretly bestowed upon himself the powers of a monarch. If we are to remain a constitutional republic, Greenwald writes, we cannot abide radical theories of executive power, which are transforming the very core of our national character, and moving us from democracy toward despotism. This is not hyperbole. This is the crisis all Americans—liberals and conservatives–now face. In the spirit of the colonists who once mustered the strength to denounce a king, Greenwald invites us to consider: How would a patriot act today?”
Greenwald makes a case for what he argues is the illegal activity of the Bush administration in warrant-less wiretapping and other matters associated with the Patriot Act, providing citations from Supreme Court decisions, Congressional statements, and writings by the Founding Fathers of the United States.
How Would A Patriot Act? Defending American Values From A President Run Amok is currently available in both paperback and Kindle versions from the Amazon.com Marketplace.
