Patrick Henry-American Statesman, The Book

Who is Patrick Henry? Most Americans recognize Patrick Henry as “The Orator” who delivered the “give me liberty or give me death” speech which thus delivered the United States a free and independent nation. This view of Henry’s life is rather like believing that George Washington’s signature achievement was chopping down a cherry tree.

David Hume, Scottish Founding Fathers & Early Promoters of [r]epublicanism

Mandeville, LA - Name the week of the year on a calendar and there is a good chance that Mike Church has brought up a man who inspired our founding fathers, David Hume and his "The Idea of a Perfect Commonwealth", on his Sirius/XM radio show or Founders TV show. Hume was an inspirational figure during the founding era and is well known to have inspired James Madison's views on the Constitution. Hume understood the concept of "human scale theory" as it applies to the size of political bodies and in this essay explains why that scale matters and how a [r]epublican system of government can remain in scale while insuring the liberty, safety and happiness of the people.

Patrick Henry – Why did they say “We the People”?

During the VA Ratifying Convention Patrick Henry was the most frequent speaker against ratification of the new Constitution. Here, on 4 June, 1788, Mr. Henry first spoke to the delegates and reminded them of Virginia's sovereignty and her membership in a confederation of states. This speech is acted out in my movie "The Spirit of '76 - The Greatest Story Never Told".
