Unfortunately, he was right.

Perhaps so but to quote a poster from another thread in this series:

"As for Henry’s criticisms, had Henry bothered to do his duty and attend the Philadelphia Constitutional convention, there is no telling what positive influence he could have had. It is quite possible if not probable the taxing power and Article III would be different.

IIRC, he was also offered and declined the seat of Chief Justice of the United States. If he truly wished to protect the liberty of the people, he missed a superb opportunity.

I agree with him!

Patrick Henry and Brutus combine to demolish the Constitution. The Bill of Rights was lipstick on a pig.
