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…

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...

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? For more on this be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already!

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?"

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.

Second Amendment Is About Arms and Militias Not Weapons

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Why do you think the Constitution goes into such detail? Why did the Virginians spend almost a week debating the militia clause in their convention to ratify? They were terrified of the consequences of disarming the militia, meaning making the militia not an army; making them a bunch of skeet shooters. That’s not a militia. That’s an invitation to get invaded and killed. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Kevin Gutzman On The Prophecies Of Patrick Henry & NSA Partisan Hypocrisy

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What Henry was talking about was there is nothing in your little document there, Mr. Madison, that says this new government has to report anything to us other than they’re going to keep a ledger. You can keep a ledger in your little House of your proceedings. The president can deliver a state of the union to the Congress. Outside of that, how do we know you’re going to tell us whether or not the NSA agency you created has 110 billion phone records of every living soul in the known universe? Was Henry prescient on this point? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
