In Democracy in Chains, award-winning historian Nancy MacLean reveals a troubling prospect. Since its inception, the Radical Right has worked to change not simply who rules, but to fundamentally alter the rules of democratic governance themselves. She names the Right's true founder - the Nobel Prize-winning political economist James McGill Buchanan - and dissects the operation he and his colleagues designed to alter government at both the federal and state levels, the judiciary, and the law.

It's the Democratic Party that want Democracy in chains. The American electorate voted for Trump, they won the electoral college. Eight months after the election they are still going on about Russia. They can't believe they lost. Their candidate Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, she blames everyone but herself. Her husband had a lot of baggage did he not?
