Mutual defence, freedom of travel, freedom of commerce. Sounds like the start of the European Union.
"you don't have to do it Shay"
Most of what you said is correct, but the new Constitution was not ratified! The delegates were not legal! The T ROH SHOW Special Edition #5 International Public NoticeThe Government of The United States of America GoTo: https://youtu.be/XtTgW-fj0DE
It's quite a propagandist video for the worship of an illegal document and the fact you glamourized it simply because of the phrase "We the people" in the constitution.
But "We the peole" who considering the federalists tbought the people shouldn't even have any saying under a constitutional government and only their own peers should be allowed to vote?
Patrick Henry destroyed their logic times a dozen single handedly yet people spew myths about how the constitution should be seen as a holy script:
"That this is a consolidated Government is demonstrably clear, and the danger of such a Government, is, to my mind, very striking. I have the highest veneration of those Gentlemen,–but, Sir, give me leave to demand, what right had they to say, We, the People. My political curiosity, exclusive of my anxious solicitude for the public welfare, leads me to ask who authorised them to speak the language of, We, the People, instead of We, the States?…
Consider our situation, Sir: Go to the poor man, ask him what he does; he will inform you, that he enjoys the fruits of his labour, under his own fig-tree, with his wife and children around him, in peace and security. Go to every other member of the society, you will find the same tranquil ease and content; you will find no alarms or disturbances:
Why then tell us of dangers to terrify us into an adoption of this new Government? and yet who knows the dangers that this new system may produce; they are out of the sight of the common people: They cannot foresee latent consequences: I dread the operation of it on the middling and lower class of people: It is for them I fear the adoption of this system."
Patrick Henry, at the Virginia Ratifying Convention June 12, 1788
Here Patrick Henry is suspicious of the new government given power under the new Constitution and is upset that those in favor of it used fear to push people into supporting it.
Henry further states:
"This Constitution is said to have beautiful features, but when I come to examine these features, Sir, they appear to me horribly frightful: among other deformities, it has an awful squinting; it squints towards monarchy: and does not this raise indignation in the breast of every true American?
Your President may easily become king; your senate is so imperfectly constructed that your dearest rights may be sacrificed by what may be a small minority; and a very small minority may continue forever unchangeably this government, although horribly defective: where are your checks in the government? Your strong holds will be in the hands of your enemies.
If your American chief, be a man of ambition, and abilities, how easy is it for him to render himself absolute? The army, is in his hands, and if he be a man of address, it will be attached to him, and it will be the subject of long meditation with him to seize the first suspicious moment to accomplish his design; and, Sir, will the American spirit solely relieve you when this happens?"
