Thomas Jefferson's records indicate that they were designated by the Board of Visitors of his University of Virginia to be taught there as the text for its law school. "'The Federalist'", the Board minutes indicate, "constitute 'an authority to which appeal is habitually made by all, and rarely declined or denied by any as evidence of the general opinion of those who framed, and of those who accepted the Constitution of the U. S., on questions as to its genuine meaning.'" (Quoted from Thomas Jefferson's record of the meeting). (P. 225, "Our Ageless Constitution."}
Should Mr. Klein feel that he is up to reading and comprehending these explanations of this Constitution he finds to be so difficult and temporary in its construction, perhaps he might better understand the protections for liberty of that document so admired by generations of intellectual giants who love liberty throughout the world (including Sir William Gladstone).
According to Klein, the Constitution is "over a hundred years old." I guess that means that the Constitution was ratified sometime between the administrations of Chester Arthur and William Howard Taft.
