FOCUS. It is Constitutionalism; Not Conservatism or Libertarianism;

The Founders spent years examining what was necessary for free "INDEPENDENT" "REPUBLIC"S" based upon past histories of failed attempts.

As written, aside from the obvious mistake over slavery to get southern states to sign the Constitution, which have been corrected in the documents;

The principles of the Declaration of Independence and "LIMITED COMPACT" of the Constitution are as close to perfect when followed under the ORIGINAL INTENT set down in the Ratifying Conventions and established in Common Law Principles.

Here are 6 Founders Documents and 2 APP Article links that show the LIMITATIONS of the Federal Government and the need for small, strong, LOCALLY well represented republics, that resolve the issues of both Conservatives and Libertarians (both ill defined definitions because those that usually promote them vary so greatly in stands that they are blurred beyond definition):

5 Founders Documents:

Which include the:

Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788 (Bill of Rights, Welfare Clause, Militia, State Powers);

Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions 1798 (Limited Compact, Limited federal Powers, Nullification of Unconstitutional Federal Legislative passed acts and laws - the "Rightful Remedy"), State and local Powers over federal);

Kentucky Resolution 1798 - Thomas Jefferson

The Kentucky Resolutions of 1798

In Full:
http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/candidates

Thomas Jefferson:

"1. Resolved, That the several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for "special purposes" — "delegated" to that government "certain DEFINITE" powers,

RESERVING, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their OWN self-government;

and that WHENSOEVER the general government assumes undelegated powers,

its acts are "UNAUTHORITATIVE", "VOID", and of "NO FORCE":

that to this compact "each State" acceded as a State, and is an integral part, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party:

that the government created by this COMPACT was "NOT" made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself

(APP: i.e. The Federal Supreme Court, Executive or Legislative are not the final judge);

since that would have made "its (the federal legislative) discretion", and "NOT the Constitution", the MEASURE of its powers;

but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an "EQUAL RIGHT" to judge for "ITSELF", as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress..

2. " Resolved, That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish:

a.) treason,
b.) counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States,
c.) piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and
d.) offenses against the law of nations,

and >>>> NO OTHER CRIMES >>>"WHATSOEVER";

and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, not prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,"

therefore the act of Congress, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, and intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," as also the act passed by them on the — day of June, 1798, intituled "An Act to punish frauds committed on the bank of the United States," (>>>> and ALL their OTHER ACTS which assume to CREATE, DEFINE, or PUNISH crimes, OTHER than THOSE so "ENUMERATED" in the Constitution,)

>>> are "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE";

and that the power to create, define, and punish such other crimes is reserved, and, of right, appertains "SOLELY" and "EXCLUSIVELY" to the respective "STATES", each within its own territory..."

Virginia Resolution of 1798

Virginia Resolution of 1798

James Madison:

"RESOLVED, That the General Assembly of Virginia, doth unequivocably express a firm resolution to maintain and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of this State, against every aggression either foreign or domestic, and that they will support "the government" of the United States in all measures "WARRANTED" by "the former".

That this assembly most solemnly declares a warm attachment to the Union of the "States", to maintain which it pledges all its powers; and that for this end, it is their duty to watch over and oppose "EVERY INFRACTION" of those principles which constitute the "ONLY BASIS" of that Union,

because a faithful observance of them, can alone secure it's existence and the public happiness.

That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact, to which the states are parties; as limited by the "plain sense and intention" of the instrument constituting the "compact"; as NO further valid that they are authorized by the grants "ENUMERATED" in "THAT COMPACT"; and that in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said COMPACT, the STATES who are parties thereto, have the right, and are in DUTY bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of the "EVIL", and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them. ..."

Virginia Resolution 1798 (#2)

Virginia Resolution In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/candidates

James Madison (Continued): "...That the General Assembly doth also express its DEEP REGRET, that a spirit has in sundry instances, been manifested by the federal government,

to "enlarge its powers by FORCED constructions" of the constitutional charter which defines them;

and that implications have appeared of a "DESIGN" to "EXPOUND" certain >>>"GENERAL "PHRASES"

(which having been copied from the very limited grant of power, in the former articles of confederation were the less liable to be misconstrued)

so as to destroy the meaning and effect, of the particular "ENUMERATION"(APP: LIMITED DELEGATED POWERS ESTABLISHED IN THE RATIFYING CONVENTIONS) which NECESSARILY EXPLAINS AND LIMITS THE "GENERAL PHRASES";

and so as to consolidate the states by degrees, into ONE sovereignty (APP: i.e. ONE NATION NO WHERE INTENDED),

the obvious tendency and inevitable consequence of which would be, to >>>"TRANSFORM" the present "republican" system of the United States,

into "an absolute", or "at best" a mixed >>>"MONARCHY".

"...That the General Assembly doth particularly protest against the palpable and alarming infractions of the Constitution, in the two late cases of the "Alien and Sedition Acts" passed at the last session of Congress; the first of which exercises a power "NO WHERE DELEGATED" to the federal government,

and which by uniting legislative and judicial powers to those of executive, SUBVERTS THE GENERAL PRINCIPLES of free government;

as well as the particular organization, and positive provisions of the federal constitution;

and the other of which acts, exercises in like manner, a power NOT delegated by the constitution,

but on the contrary, expressly and positively forbidden by one of the amendments thereto;

a power, which more than any other, ought to produce universal alarm, because it is levelled against that right of freely examining public characters and measures,

and of FREE COMMUNICATION AMONG THE PEOPLE THEREON,

which has ever been justly deemed, the ONLY effectual GUARDIAN of EVERY OTHER RIGHT" ..."

Virginia Resolution 1798 (#3 and Final)

Virginia Resolution 1798
In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/candidates

James Madison: "....That this state having by its (RATIFYING) Convention, which "RATIFIED" the federal Constitution, "EXPRESSLY DECLARED",

that among other essential rights, "the Liberty of Conscience and of the Press CANNOT be cancelled, abridged, restrained, or modified by "ANY" authority

(Federal (or State) - Legislative, Executive OR Supreme Court - and it cannot be ratified or amended - See Virginia Ratifying Convention6-16-1788 "BY ANY MEANS" In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/americanpatriotpartynewsl... )

of the "United States" (federal Government),"

and from its extreme anxiety to guard these rights from "EVERY possible attack" of "SOPHISTRY OR AMBITION",

having with other states, recommended an amendment "FOR THAT PURPOSE",

(APP IMPORTANT NOTE: THE 'RATIFYING AND AMENDMENT' PROCESS IS CREATED TO LIMIT FEDERAL POWERS, IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO ARROGATE NEW FEDERAL POWERS - WHICH IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED again review Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788)

which amendment was, in due time, annexed to the Constitution;

it would mark a reproachable inconsistency, and "CRIMINAL DEGENERACY",

if an indifference were now shewn, to the most palpable violation of one of the Rights, thus declared and secured;

and to the establishment of a precedent which may be "fatal to the other" (RIGHTS).

That the good people of this commonwealth, having ever felt, and continuing to feel, the most sincere affection for their brethren of the other states; the truest anxiety for establishing and perpetuating the union of all;

and the most scrupulous fidelity to THAT constitution, which is the "pledge of mutual friendship" (a LIMITED "COMPACT"), and the instrument of mutual happiness;

the General Assembly doth solemnly appeal to the like dispositions of the other states, in confidence that they will concur with this commonwealth in declaring, as it does hereby declare,

that the acts aforesaid, are "UNCONSTITUTIONAL";

and that the necessary and proper measures will be taken by each, for co-operating with this state,

in maintaining the Authorities, Rights, and Liberties, referred to the States respectively, or to the people.

That the Governor be desired, to transmit a copy of the foregoing Resolutions to the executive authority of each of the other states, with a request that the same may be communicated to the Legislature thereof;

and that a copy be furnished to each of the Senators and Representatives representing this state in the Congress of the United States.

Agreed to by the (Virginia State) Senate, December 24, 1798 "

-------

APP: i.e The Message to federal government "get lost", "you and your acts passed by the federal house and Senate and signed into law under a "PRETENSE" of authority, have just been "NULLIFIED". i.e. the acts are "NO LAW".

1/2 page statement signed by the state senate, and all the federal corruption came to NOTHING! ZIP! NADA!

That is the way you do it.
