I believe more than a few 'conservatives' need to read it for the first time instead of getting their talking points from the RNC.
Talk about heads blowing a gasket. I like the thought in A Patriot's History of America that the Bill of Rights should be called a "Bill of limitations of government" so as to not imply our rights come from the government, or that those listed are the only rights we have.
Did that make sense?

(Peace - that brief moment in history where everyone stands around reloading.)
Yes. But the government and most of the party faithful don't see the Constitution as a limit on the national government. Instead they see it as a confirmation of their wasteful spending, questionable foreign policies, and the right of centralization of power in Washington DC
And to question any of the above automatically gets you labeled as some sort of liberal for doubting the all holy party
