Fascinating Reading. To get in the head of the founders, and see why they wrote what they did.
Indeed fascinating reading. I find the part concerning Treaties of particular interest. Especially Jac’s note:
concerning Wilson— and possibility that Treaties might be seen as “perhaps superior to the Constituion? Ouch indeed!!!
I am reminded of Dulles -who if I read him right made that very assumption. Too often it seems Congress has either misunderstood Treaties —or I was taught wrong. For I was taught that Treaties applied only to our national Govt with its conversation with/dealing with foreign States. Too often Congress seems intent upon applying foreign treaties to the US in amending our Constitution and laws. Need to learn more I suppose of Wilson. and Treaties.But Ouch indeed!!!!
