On September 17, 1787, the Constitution was signed. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states.
On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the document, and it was subsequently agreed that government under the U.S. Constitution would begin on March 4, 1789.
Magna Carta exercised a strong influence both on the United States Constitution and on the constitutions of the various states.
Some would have you believe that the only people that can properly interpret the Constitution are people with advanced degrees. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is the Framers of the Constitution wrote it so that it could be read by anyone.
How is compliance with the Constitution enforced? That has been tasked to the People. The opening words of the Constitution are, “We the People in order to form a more perfect union.” The real question is not who is charged with ensuring compliance but how do We the People enforce compliance? One of the ways to ensure compliance is to establish Constitutional Compliant Counties and Municipalities.
Alerted by a party of dispatch riders sent to warn the town (the most famous of which was Paul Revere) 77 militia members met the British forces on the town green at Lexington. After being ordered to surrender their arms in face of far superior numbers, the militia began to disperse. Just then, a single shot was heard, prompting an active engagement. During the fight, eight militia members were killed, and another 9 wounded. Only one British soldier was wounded.
It’s clear what the intent of those opposing the 2nd Amendment ultimately will be. A systematic removal of Rights, justified by manipulation of emotion and politicized redefinition of language. Let’s imagine what that means to the public.
There is a reason that our right to Free Speech is perched upon the top spot in our Bill of Rights. To be free to speak ones mind, to think freely, to believe and practice one’s own faith, to report and share ideas…these were not just ideas that were discussed by our Founding Fathers, they were the cornerstone principles upon which our nation was built.
From September through April 1787-1788, The Federalist Papers were written and published in New York newspapers. These editorials explain the new Constitution, including what the different articles and clauses mean. And they encouraged the people of New York State to ratify the Constitution.
The Bill of Rights needs a conservative Supreme Court and the left will do everything they can to prevent it. Do not let them defeat us.
