The Constitution

We attended a "Constitution Rally" in New Berlin last night, sponsored by Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty, Ozaukee Patriots and The Sheboygan Liberty Coalition. It was an educational opportunity and turned out to be very enlightening. The speakers were "Thomas Paine", Judge Randy Koschnick and Constitutional Historian Dr. Kevin R.C. Gutzman.

In a nutshell: The Constitution of the United States of America spells out what the feds can and cannot do. Nearly everything that has been done by our federal lawmakers is not in keeping with what the framers (specifically Madison) intended. Dr. Gutzman appears to have done his homework.

Now if we can work on that delivery a little.....

Edit: 0935 - Monte has a good summary at Ozaukee Patriots.

Jefferson was not a Framer.

Then he was what? A "scribe"?

"Anonymous" is correct. While, according to his autobiography, it can be argued Jefferson had a strong influence, the term "framer" is not appropriate. The post has been edited accordingly.
