Bill Of Rights Is Meant To Restrict The Feds, Not The States

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The Bill of Rights was used and created to provide further safeguards for the states against the Feds, just in case the Feds got the bright idea that they wanted to try, as the vulgar phrase goes in 2013, take our guns away. The Second Amendment says: No, you can’t; you’re prohibited from doing it. That doesn’t mean the State of Illinois couldn’t do it. It just means that the Feds can’t do it. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

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.

Donald Livingston Interview: The Supremacy Clause For Dummies

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I think what he just explained to you -- this is just another point of view in a long string of explanations, Professor Livingston -- is that you’ve been taught to understand the constitutional order as specifically and totally defined by the federal judiciary when we know from the admonitions of the framers of the Constitution that the government cannot possibly be the sole arbiter of the extent of its own powers.

Henry Knew Best: The Size and Growth of Government Would Make Transparency Impossible

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - During the Constitutional Convention a bunch of guys met in secret to establish a new form of government... which isn't why they were sent there in the first place. They were sent there to amend the Articles of Confederation, instead they came back with a Constitution with Washington's painting all over it. So why all the secrecy? Well, many of the states and their representatives didn't think it was a good idea, including one man by the name of Patrick Henry. And one reason he was against the Constitution was specifically because of all the secrecy. He was afraid the Federal Government would continue to meet in secret because it would continue to grow and the people meeting in secret would basically pay off the citizens to keep them in office. Oh, how right he was. For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass for more...

How is the Millenial Generation Going to Fix This Mess? Will They Even Bother?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - National Journal columnist Ron Fournier thinks the ObamaCare "shutdown" spells the end of the GOP, the status quo of the DNC and the rise of "millennials" but if Noah Webster were still alive, I imagine the caterwaul of four letter words he might use to describe the "millennial." Time Magazine gave the "Me Me Me" generation a cover story last May and concluded, "They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re even a bit delusional. Those aren’t just unfounded negative stereotypes about 80 million Americans born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re backed up by a decade of sociological research." Fournier can be forgiven for not reading Time that week but there is no contrition for elevating the millennials to the Madisonian heights of "revolutionary".

Ferrara – Democracy Fail, How’s Taxation WITH Representation Working?

"When that idea [democracy] is introduced, you have coming into the political structure of a society this whole notion of representation, that government is a compact between the people and the government as established through their representatives. The great irony of representation is that over time it swallows up everything and destroys true liberty. If anybody doubts that, let me ask a simple question: How has taxation with representation worked out for us?"
