Why do you say that?

James Madison submitted the Bill of Rights in 1789

Bill Of Rights day,  Dec 15, 1791

George Mason died Oct 7 1792 .

I have posted the evolution of the Bill of Rights on the Fora over the years, While Madison may have been the one that that helped push the BOR through, he certainly was not the original author. Without exception, every BOR in this country at the time, was predicated upon the Virginia BOR passed in June of 1776, written by George Mason. Even your beloved philosopher, non legislator, Ben Franklin, copied the Virginia BOR verbatim for Pennsylvania. The principles were incorporated, with a certain amount of license into the DOI, along with principles on the judiciary written by Henry Drayton of South Carolina, a Judge canned by the Crown because he would not toe the line. He was very vehemnt in his condemnation.

Yes, but wasn't. So it could not.

A cop out and the very reason the anti-Federalists refused to sign off on the Constitution.

So, before the band BAN ( the Devil made me do it, FP ). And some Yankee slave importers speak for the rest of the northern populace? Me thinks not.

Think what you will.

Cant disagree with a lot of that.

Never thought you would.

That has been and will be debated till eternity.

And most still get it wrong. Grin

Our Bill of Rights constitutes a cluster of little foxholes of liberty ground into the hard cold face of history by helpless men for a shield against the lash of tyrants. They are the result of distrust of power and distrust of men in power. They are a recognition of Lord Acton's statement of a truth eternal--"power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."R. CARTER PITTMAN&&Dalton, Ga., Sept. 28, 1955.DRAFT JAN MORGAN FOR PRESIDENT!
