Following are the words of David Robertson, the unofficial copyist of the Virginia Ratification Debates.
"Every speech breathes the spirit of a freeman, and should the following record descend to an enslaved posterity, every page will become a monument of the political purity of their fathers, and of their own disgraceful degeneracy. Should the footsteps of a tyrant hereafter contaminate the soil of our country, the Debates of the Virginia Convention will probably be among the earliest victims of a suspicious proscription."
Wow. Great Quote!
It really does not take too much study to understand how the best governments can be perverted by man.
What amazes me is how today’s public keeps themselves in the dark.
