The questions seem to be growing: what is the government’s role in your health-care decisions? What will the government require you to do to conserve energy resources? And what about the issue of illegal immigration? Shouldn’t that be a concern?

And that’s why – for the eighth straight ranking – readers have made the U.S. Constitution No. 1 among best-sellers at the WND Superstore.

According to the Washington Post, President Obama’s recent budget proposal includes the hiring of “tens of thousands of new federal government workers.”

The Heritage Foundation estimated that need at 250,000 people, and even White House budget director Peter Orszag said Obama will be “investing” in ranks of new “professionals.”

One guess is that the IRS alone will need 16,000 new agents to enforce the various penalties of the new health-care law and other jobs.

But the questions remain unanswered: where in the course of a constitutional republic is there a mandate for such extensive federal controls?

Which brings people around to the very document that set up the U.S. government.

The Constitution, printed by the National Center for Constitutional Studies and proofed word-for-word against the original in the Archives in Washington, D.C., provides the outline of what a federal government should do and places limits on what it cannot.

It is identical in spelling, capitalization and punctuation to the original. The 48-page pocket Constitution also includes the Bill of Rights, Amendments 11-27, the Declaration of Independence and a complete index of the Constitution.

“Make no mistake about it – there’s power in the words of the
Constitution,” said Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of
“It’s one of the most magnificent political documents ever conceived by
mortal men. In fact, I don’t think its beauty, elegance and enduring
spirit would have been possible without a little divine inspiration.”

At The Hill, Rep. Cathy McMorris noted not only is government growing rapidly, the salaries for government workers are too. She recently noted while the private sector lost 7.7 million jobs over the past two years, federal bureaucracies grew by 10 percent. Further, she added, while private-sector salaries average $40,000 plus, federal jobs pay – on average – more than $71,000.

“Since the recession began in December 2007, the U.S. economy has been shedding jobs at its worst rate since the Great Depression. But you would never know it if you worked ‘inside the Beltway,'” she wrote. “When the economy turned south two years ago, the Department of Defense had 1,868 employees earning $150,000 or more. Today, there are 10,100 employees at the Pentagon taking home that salary. At the start of the economic slump, the Department of Transportation had only a single career employee earning more than $170,000. Today, there are more than 1,600 career federal workers at the DOT making that amount. Obama has recommended an additional 2 percent pay raise for 2010.”

In second place is “Climategate: A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes The Global Warming Scam” by Brian Sussman.

The distinguished, award-winning television weatherman in San Francisco deftly melds easy-to-understand scientific facts with provocative commentary in this explanation of how the propagators of environmental alarmism are doing mankind a disservice.

Sick of twisted “facts” mass-marketed to manipulate basic living decisions and common-sense energy consumption, Sussman writes an indictment of elitist politicians, bureaucrats and activists who front the environmental movement to push intrusive, Marxist-derived policies in a quest to become filthy rich.

Sussman traces the sources of the campaign and then guides the reader from the diabolical minds of Marx and Engels in the 1800s to the global-governance machinations of the United Nations today.

Sussman’s work is a call to action, warning Americans that their future is being undermined by a phony pseudoscience aimed at altering every aspect of life in the United States and the world.

In third place is “The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin Al-Husseini” by Chuck Morse.

The author traces the remarkable story of Haj Amin al-Husseini and describes him as, in many ways, as big a Nazi villain as Hitler himself.

He explains al-Husseini’s influence on the Middle East was as a bridge figure in terms of transporting the Nazi genocide in Europe into the postwar Middle East.

He writes: “As the leader of Arab Palestine during the British Mandate period, al-Husseini introduced violence against moderate Arabs as well as against Jews. Al-Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine in 1937 and subsequently went on the Nazi payroll as a Nazi agent.”

Further, “Al-Husseini played a pivotal behind-the-scenes role in instigating a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq in 1941 as he urged Nazis and pro-Nazi governments in Europe to transport Jews to death camps, trained pro-Nazi Bosnian brigades, and funneled Nazi loot into pro-war Arab countries.”

Morse is a veteran radio talk-show host and syndicated columnist who is regularly featured on His columns have been published in compilations including “Thunder Out of Boston,” “Why I’m a Right-Wing Extremist,” “The Difference Between Us and Them – America confronts the Leftist-Islamist Axis of Evil,” and “The Gramsci Factor – 59 Socialists in Congress.”
