The Federalist Papers

by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, James Madison

This should be required reading for all Americans!
Yes, they fought over this. Yes, they argued with differing opinions about what kind of government we ought to have. But, it is all here in these documents for us to learn from (Hamilton wanted George Washington to be our first King! Like we needed the British type of government here. yeah, right!).
The government is presently having more power than our Founding fathers intended it to have! (I only wish the Supreme Court could put them in their place and buck them back to the 18 powers they are supposed to have...!)

BTW, T. Paine should remember that ours country is NOT an "enduring democracy", as he says. The founders ABHORRED democracy, stating that it is a "despotic" type of government, doomed to failure. Democracy is rule by the many, which does not respect individual rights; whereas, a Republic which we have, does respect individual rights.
Let us start calling it at least what it is! And these papers are a good start for anyone wishing to know what the founders meant for all of us. Lincoln admonished us to "study the Constitution". How I wish more people would..! We might not be in such a mess today! Thank you Madison, thank you, Jefferson!
