Publisher's Summary

In the months and years following September 11, Robert C. Byrd has viewed with alarm what he considers to be a "slow unraveling of the people's liberties", when all dissenting voices were stilled and awesome power swung suddenly to the president to fight a "war on terror". This path violates historical American principles, it shows no regard for the balance of power or the role of the Congress; it invades our privacy; and it eliminates public participation in and understanding of government. Swept along, we have entered a war without proper consideration and rushed dangerous legislation through Congress. Now is the time to regain the Constitution, to return to the values and processes that made America great. Byrd does not shrink from speaking the truth to an ever aggressive and imperial White House.


What the Critics Say

"Attacks on the Bush presidency have proliferated in recent months, but few critics bring to the argument the weight of Senator Byrd (D-W.Va.), who has served under 11 presidents. Few combine his scholar's understanding of constitutional government with the experience gained in his nearly half-century of Senate tenure." (Publishers Weekly)

Losing America (Unabridged)

Losing America by Senator Robert Byrd, is a moving and wonderful example of someone who understands the reality of the US Constitution, the rule of law, and the separation of powers. As an Independent, I don't always find myself in agreement. In fact I disagree with the distinguished Sentor on many occations, but on this very important topic, he is right on the money. Since most citizens have never read the Constitution, let alone know what it means, it has become very easy for the "elite" of the country to unlock the chains that was placed on the Federal Government and are now on the people of this country. If our founding fathers could see what has happened, how the last 3 Presidents have disregarded the law especially the current resident, they would recoil in horror. It does not matter where truth may be found or who even may speak it, but when truth does rise to the top it is like a cold glass of water to a thirsty man. This wonderful audio book tells the truth. Bravo Mr. Byrd.

Robert Byrd tells it like it is.

In these tenuous times when our democracy is under assault from all sides, it is sobering, but necessary that Senator Byrd, one of the living experts on our Constitution, should tell the truth about the state of the Union. Beautifully written, and well read.
