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

Thoughts Upon The Mode Of Education Proper In A Republic
The tragedy in Las Vegas is more easily assessed by admitting that we have degenerated in our educational system; because of a lack of knowledge, we see the results in our intentional move away from Founders Original Intent. As I began last week to talk about Witherspoon as a Founder and educator, this week I begin to discuss the treatise written by the gent that got Witherspoon to come to Princeton.
I’m not going to be long in the promo. Simply the key words are ‘inculcate’, ‘Liberty’, ‘Patriotism’, ‘Christianity’, ‘constitutionalism’ and ‘Republic’. I’m not going to get into the depth of it this week but… the battle of education in truth is not new; it was a battle even in 1786. Hmmm, maybe that is why we saw constitutionalism degenerate by the early 1800’s! I’m inclined to go with what Benjamin Rush has to say for our Republic.
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. Continue reading →
