Contains Exclusive: Transcript Topics: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "The intriguing thing about reading Abel Upshur, or Judge Upshur, as he should be called, is that Upshur proceeds from the point of view that the fatal flaw in our American system -- and he predicts all the events of the 1860s and everything atrocious that has happened afterwards -- was brought about by what most of you think is the saving grace of the American system, which is the U.S. Constitution."

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – But this urban legend that is creeping in about what the commissioners were sent and the delegates were sent to do in Philadelphia, this has got to stop.
