10-20-18 Ageless Constitution and Voting

Ageless Constitution and Voting

We do have an Ageless Constitution that is most pertinent to the present. It is timeless in Principles. A most Critical discussion during the 1787 debates was and continues to be on Voting.

What does ‘Suffrage’ mean? How do we maintain the equity in Voting? And is our Constitution Timeless – Ageless?

I discuss all of these questions on this program. The concept of ‘Suffrage’ was heavily debated and James Madison is our primary arbiter in this discussion. It is critical to hear what Mason has to say to understand how important the right to vote is and that we need moral and virtuous Citizens that can develop into moral and virtuous elected representatives.

With that said: The mirrors of history come to reflective reality here on Samuel Adams Returns.

And because you keep asking!
