Consolidated Government Not the Republic You Thought It Was
Continuing to enhance the program on video and then putting the archive segments up on the SamuelAdamsReturns YouTube channel. Videos posted on Sunday.
In preparing for today’s program I was digging in on the Senate from the Anti-federalists perspective when I was surprised by what I’ve previously read. You know how something jumps out as if it is fresh and new. In the Founders Constitutions I was going through the topic of ‘Popular Basis for Government’ and a series of the Anti-federalists hit our present situation of despotic oligarchy right on the head. Simply, The Constitution as it is today and from the beginning is not the idea of a Republic that we think it is.
I do open today with a short mention of the article I wrote called “MSM Is Not Intelligent”. Check it out when you can.
We had a great kick off BBQ last Saturday! The movement is launched to develop the next generation of policy makers with Founders Original Intent via SACPS.org.
As always, remember: The Founders wanted us to gain knowledge and get involved! Being a Citizen is an Active involvement in our political life! Let’s get our feet on the street for this time is critical!
And because you keep asking!
