9-14-19 Constitution Day: Articles of Confederation, Seminar and Book Launch

Constitution Day

While remembering Constitution Day by considering the up and coming remembrance of the present Constitution, one must understand the first Constitution – the Articles of Confederation. Sam Adams was on the Committee to draft the Articles of Confederation. His clear understanding of historical ‘republican’ systems and Biblical Reformation Liberty were critical inputs into the original structure of the Confederation.

I have chosen to re-run a program from 2018 because I don’t believe that folks, even many who think they have the Constitution figured out, really get what is happening at the National Level was predicted by the Anti-federalists. Why do I believe that? Because the Anti-federalists predicted that if the Pulpits did not continue as the Founding Pulpits, the Constitution of 1787 would lead to the ‘soft tyranny and despotism’ that De Tocqueville later wrote about.

Yes, we are Living the predictions of the Anti-federalists and the analytical writing of De Tocqueville!

Covenant and Constitution

I am promoting sections of my book, “From Covenant To The Present Constitution” in this program. Hmmm…. I still believe that everyone reading this or who listens to the program should get a copy. Heck, since I self-publish, I have to self-promote as well.

Is there Original Intent for how our Constitution should be implemented and followed? Absolutely!!! I begin the conversation by starting at the end with a little surprising twist. We will get into this more in May and June. I will have two really good interviews in May as well.

This past Monday I was on the Daria Anne DiGiovanni program. I was a super fun interview. Here is the link to the archive on Samuel Adams Returns Archives in case you missed it.

As promised, I’m finishing off April with more of an overview of my Book “From Covenant To The Present Constitution” and discussing that we are now scheduling for the seminar beginning in June. For a signed copy of the book contact me at tom@samueladamsreturns.com You can buy it on line at the links in the References.

With that, 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!

Join me on Saturday’s program to value the Founders perspective of the mirrors of history and the reality of the present.

And because you keep asking!
