Listen to the Preview of “Danger Not Yet Over” as aging Founder Edmund Pendleton TRIES to convince Jefferson to propose 8 Constitutional amendments

Product Description  –  Reading this marvelous letter from Edmund Pendleton is almost like reading the blogs of modern day “republicans”. That our Founders saw the dangers inherent in the general government formed under the Constitution will come as a shock to many who have been taught the mythology that all was well in the young United States thanks to the fabled document. Pendleton’s theme is one that is as relevant today as it was after the Adams Administration: the government can be only as pure and respectful of liberty as the constituent parts – the politicians – are imbued with virtue, the constitution notwithstanding.

Therefore changing the politicians in a corrupt system without changing the systems corrupting mechanisms is a Sysyphus like endeavor doomed to repetitive outpourings of much fervor and passion and with much heartbreak. Perhaps we can channel this great statesman of the Old Dominion and apply his suggestions to our modern crises. However, without an expressed and lengthy discussion of the virtues that make liberty and [r]epublicanism possible while guarding against State corruption, as Pendleton (and John Taylor of Caroline as well) warn, these efforts have little chance for success. – Mike Church
