"Do you agree with the except from William Watkins "Reclaiming the American Revolution" Chapter 6, pg 140 -- quote in isolation, as stands.
The answer is "Yes. 100%. Absolutely. That was the original intent of the Constitution, as a contract agreed to and signed by the state delegations at the time"
Are you agreeing with this author? I take it?
No, I didn't read the entire thread to get the context of who / why you were responding to the way you did. My bad.
imo yes: if they don't understand this point, they most likely do not "get' what the Constitutional Republic actually is and was meant to be. Agreed.
ps. Nice tip on the book. I am putting this on my wishlist to pick up.
Recommendation: Brion T. McClanahan "The Founding Fathers Guide to the Constitution"
He does a great job of clearing up original intent using supporting historical documentation from the time period (including but well beyond the Federalist Papers)
