Again, I must say I am impressed at the notes that Madison did write, being made by quill and parchment.
Again, I must say that our current invasion is being ignored by our government.
Constitution Day is coming up on September 17; it is also the first anniversary of my father's death. I'll keep him, and the future of this nation, in my prayers.
Our government loses a little more legitimacy every day. The latest compromise of science, the hurricane/globull warming hype is just an example.
Like you, so many of us wonder why the government does not fulfill a basic function, protection from invasion? The unsaid answer is not “human rights” or social justice, but the reelection of democrat party members.
A government founded to secure our rights had evolved into an oppressive violator of those rights.
As for the delegates work schedule, a lot was done outside of the six day/week 1000-1600 routine. Since mid-July there had almost always been at least one committee working outside of Convention hours and delegates met at dinner and in the evenings to work things out. There are so many details we know nothing of.
As will I — a fathers death leaves a void not easily filled nor completely healed. The death of a nation seems nearly equal in impact-differing mostly in the observation of
numbers. God gives us but one father. And a nation /government may be taken up —or put off perhaps many times in a mans life. Yet we come to rely on both almost equally for certain provisions and protection.
