Washington’s Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer – Jimmy Madison Would Not Approve

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - George Washington issued proclamations that led to Thanksgiving and the National Day of Prayer, the latter of which did not sit well with Jimmy Madison. After the Convention, Madison developed a "hands off" view of the National Government as it relates to religion. In the early days, there was no separation of religion and government. Many of Congress's meetings began and ended with prayer. During Monroe's presidency, Madison didn't think that the government should be paying Chaplain's to visit the troops, now if he had tried this just 20 years earlier, no one would have even listened to him, but by the 1790's things had already changed.

Kevin Gutzman on John Dickinson and the AUMF

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Kevin Gutzman joins us on today's Founders TV to talk to us about how John Dickinson (or any of the Founding Fathers) would have counseled the current world rulers in Washington D.C. on Syria and the AUMF. Well, how does Prof. Gutzman think the Founders would have responded to the current situation? Well, to put it mildly... they probably would not have been too happy with what they're doing in Mordor. Dickinson and many of the other Founders did not want to set up an Empire, like Obama and other Decepticons are trying to do right now.

Patrick Henry May Not Be Who You Think He Is

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The painting that you think of when you think of Patrick Henry was painted in 1815... well, Patrick Henry died in 1799. What other popular portraits of Patrick Henry are there? The one where he's arguing against the Stamp Act at the House of Burgesses, but that one wasn't finished until the 1850's. Even though Patrick Henry was a very busy man, he was also the Governor of Virginia for about 30 years, so it's not like he didn't have time to sit down for a portrait. And besides, you can't swing a dead cat around the Founding Fathers without hitting a portrait of one of them. So what's going on here?

An admission fee was charged for the public to enter and observe the innovative lighting. The Peale Museum was the first public building in the United States to use gas lighting.

Defenders of the Constitution… Is There Anybody Out There?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - How many TRUE statesmen have their been recently? True defenders of the Constitution. Ted Cruz? Nah. Ron Paul is about the only one that we can actually think of. And it doesn't matter if these guys are Republican or Democrat. Why anyone would want to jump on board with any member of the current political class is beyond comprehension. Almost everyone is there to toe the party line, be it Republican or Democrat, and this is exactly what the Founders warned us about. They warned us about Party politics and the "political class", so it's up to us to keep an eye on the governing body, we are the ones who need to keep THEM in check.
