Conceding To Consolidation is what the Anti-federalists predicted would occur when the people would be bribed by the elected with the peoples own money. The fundamental arguments by many of the Anti-federalists were in regard to the potentials of corruption within the legislative bodies and the soon to be created bureaucracies and the greater potential of a national consolidated government. With that in mind, in this program I will touch on the very beginning of what the Federal Farmer had to say about this. I will also touch on the idea that paper money establishes a mechanism where by even the most astute person is willing to change the form of governance for the manipulation of paper money.
Sam Adams always discussed that ‘All politics is Local’. I set the challenge before everyone to look hard at what is happening locally and how the reality is ‘Levies’ are on the way. Many are more immediately affected by local government than anything. The Unaffordability of property taxes are driving people out of their homes as well as making it less possible for others to really qualify to purchase something they would really like. Property is one of our fundamental rights yet most are willing to give it away for the emotionalism of ‘Levies’.
With that said, We MUST understand our Foundational Truths to keep the Republic and Constitutionalism working according to Original Intent. In 2019 we will continue to look into the mirrors of history as they apply to our present.
And because you keep asking!
