Power Divided Is Power Checked Jason Lewis Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

In Power Divided is Power Checked, Lewis reminds us that the concept of states’ rights, as bequeathed by the Founding Fathers to a grateful nation, was about a constitutional framework intended to limit the missteps of government and provide the greatest amount of freedom and decision-making power to the citizens of the “several states.” He defines the essence of our constitutional republic and highlights the legal history of the relationship between the states and the federal government. Lewis sounds the alarm for states’ rights and offers a way out of the constitutional malaise the nation finds itself in. And, if his prescription for returning power to the states seems radical, Lewis would argue that this is only because we are unaware of just how far America has drifted from our limited government tradition. He calls upon us to understand what it means to live in America, recognize how fragile our republic has become, reclaim our tradition, and in doing so, reclaim our freedom.

    Jason does an excellent job of making the point that limited government is better government. He seems to stick to the facts with no political bashing or name calling. After all it isn't about a party or a specific candidate, it is about our future and the future of our grandchildren. Can we close the barn door, or has our liberty already escaped? Jason provides some direction to help us be heard. I have spent most of my life just being one of those people who go along to get along. I didn't really pay attention to the role of government in my life. The more I read and watch the news and listen to politicians, the more I realized how much the government at all levels is intertwined in my life. It is costing us our individual liberty and driving us bankrupt. And most people don't even realize it. I am on my way to being better informed and to not be a political cheerleader but a political thinker and problem solver.
