In "Power Divided is Power Checked - The Argument for States Rights", 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 if 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.
From the beginnings of the "American Experiment", Jason Lewis describes the judicial unraveling of our liberties and offers insight into the factors that play a part in the continued erosion of our constitutional protections-as evidenced poignantly by recent Court decisions related to healthcare, same-sex marriage, and Arizona's new immigration law.

"A must read for anyone who cares about the future of America. Lewis does an amazing job of illustrating just how far we've strayed from the course set by our founders." - Vince Flynn, New York Best-Selling Author
"Jason Lewis has done a yeoman's job in explaining the constitutional principles that made us the world's freest and richest nation and how abandonment of those principles is proving to be our undoing." - Walter E. Williams, John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics, George Mason University
"Great book, and about time! Jason Lewis lays out the primary debate of the modern era. Have states' rights been usurped by a massive, activist federal government, aided by liberal courts? The real question now is: will one state (or one governor) have the guts to stand up and challenge Washington?" - Senator Rod Grams, Retired (R-MN)
"(Jason Lewis) has been a force in Minnesota for two decades, lacerating Democrats, centrist Republicans, and conservative apostates. He is to Minnesota Republican politics what radio titan Walter Winchell was to New Your politicians: a force capable of delivering migraines." - The Washington Post
"I listen regularly to Jason Lewis' radio show because of his cogent, well-prepared insights that you won't hear anyplace else. For anyone who has heard Jason on his national radio show, listened to him when he substituted for Rush Limbaugh, or read his opinion pieces in places such as the Wall Street Journal, you know what I am talking about. This book is a genuine treat. The book continues Jason's trademark style by providing a real education, in this case on why "states' rights" has been so important to America's success and why the nationalization of decisions threatens American's freedom." From the Forward by John Lott, PhD, economist and senior research scientist at University of Maryland and author of five books including "Freedomnomics", "The Bias Against Guns", and "More Guns, Less Crime"
