Better picture reaction to yesterday's decision as citizens rushing to study and explain the ideas of their Declaration of Independence and Constitution to their fellow citizens.

Despair and disappointment won't help. Rediscovering how to be a free and prosperous society again might save liberty for future generations.

The following art from Hagy in a Bicentennial volume is symbolic of what needs to be occurring between now and November.

Enl. People

Um, no.

The entrenched ignorance depicted in that graphic is exactly the problem. Just look at it. It starts the the Declaration of Independence and then proceeds to the "Constitutional Principles" without regard for the actually form of government produced by the people who signed the Declaration. We had a revolutionary government (Articles of Confederation) before we had a counterrevolutionary one (current federal system). It then stupidly moves to "Section III", The Federalist Papers which, of course, preceded the Constitution, which the supposed educator called "Section II".

What needs to happen should be detailed in something called "Section IIIa, Revised: The Anti-Federalist Papers"

P.S. I just noticed that Free Republic's built-in spell checker flags "Anti-Federalist" and accepts "Individualist" as an acceptable substitute. Cool.
