Lew Rockwell: The Growing Threat of the US Police State
The erosion of the Constitution and Bill of Rights
Jim welcomes Lew Rockwell, editor of LewRockwell.com and founder of the Mises Institute. Lew discusses the erosion of the Constitution and Bill of Rights as government increases its power over its citizens. Lew mentions that the US has the largest prison population in the world, more than 2.3 million people. Lew believes that ultimately no power granted to the state goes un-abused.
